Monday, 08 April, 2013


A Krones plant in Brazil, Krones do Brasil Ltda, has been certified by the German technical inspectorate TÜV SÜD. This is the first Krones plant outside Germany to have been awarded the TÜV certification.

TÜV SÜD handed over the initial certification in March in the form of an IMS certificate extended to cover quality (DIN EN ISO 9001), environmental protection (DIN EN ISO 14001) and occupational safety (BS OHSAS 18001) to Jens Hoyer, the Managing Director of Krones do Brasil.

“At Krones’ facility in Brazil, the issues of sustainability, eco-management and occupational safety have been taken fully on board, not only to the benefit of Krones AG, but also to the benefit of your staff, the natural environment and the community as a whole,” said Christian Striegl, TÜV SÜD branch office manager in Munich.

“Under the aegis of the VALUE program, focusing on internationality, quality and organisation, you have not only put the issues of eco-awareness, occupational safety and sustainability firmly on the agenda, but incorporated them as integral constituents of appropriately structured intracompany processes.”

Other Krones facilities in countries such as China and the US are scheduled to follow or are already involved in the certification process.
