The architectural anodizing plant "KTM-2000" in Logoisk, once again confirmed the compliance of its production processes with the highest international quality standards in the field of anodic coating and received an extension of the Qualanod license for 2022.
At this difficult time for the whole planet, caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Qualanod inspection system, like many other areas of our life, moved to online using video-conferencing platforms such as Teams, Skype, GoToMeeting, Zoom, Webex, WhatsApp and others applications convenient for use by licensees in the field.
As a result, this year, instead of the standard two, we passed three inspections:
R2-2020 (since it could not be carried out at the end of 2020 due to the aggravation of the situation with Covid-19), as well as two planned, routine inspections this year - R1-2021 and R2-2021.
We were one of the first enterprises in the world, where the remote inspection control system was tested.
Subsequently our company been selected to conduct an open inspection with the participation of inspectors from the headquarters of Qualanod from Zurich, in order to take our experience as a basis for the positive practice of remote inspections around the world.
The photographs show the progress of this joint audit, where three inspectors located in different countries directly participated: inspector Bas Scheffers from the Netherlands, a representative of the IFO (Institut für Oberflächentechnik), as well as representatives of the Zurich headquarters of Qualanod, inspectors Monica Gerber and Andre Bunke.
As a result, we successfully passed all the inspections of 2021 year and received a new certificate for 2022.
