With consistency we look to be predictable in all operations being develop. To ensure this, we are working on the introduction of Quality Management Standards in major processes.
Through control we want to ensure openness and security to all our customers and suppliers. The Group has hired one of the most important consulting companies in the world in its area of expertise to perform the control process on the company.
