As you may know quality assurance, safe working conditions and environmental protection are very important to us ánd our customers. We take preventative measures to continuously improve our production processes to meet both our customers and our own standards. All Rompa production locations are ISO certified; ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environment). Additionally, Rompa Shunxing (China) and Rompa CZ (Czech Republic) are automotive certified according to ISO TS 16949.
Recently, our production plant in the Czech Republic was audited by Robert Bosch GmbH. Reason for the audit was to control and evaluate the processes of the quality management system. The result was presented to us by Bosch in a final report. And….. we’ve got an A!
According to Bosch’ audit team, the tidiness and cleanliness of Rompa CZ are at a very high level and the 5S methods* are applied consistently. Besides that, Bosch noticed our openness, willingness for collaboration and good cooperation, as well as our interest for optimization and improvement.
As you can imagine, we are very very proud of this result!
We congratulate the whole Rompa CZ team with this great achievement.
* 5S is a system to reduce waste and optimize productivity through maintaining an orderly workplace and using visual cues to achieve more consistent operational results. Implementation of this method ‘cleans up’ and organizes the workplace basically in its existing configuration, and it is typically the first lean method which organizations implement. The 5S pillars (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain), provide a methodology for organizing, cleaning, developing and sustaining a productive work environment. In the daily work of a company, routines that maintain organization and orderliness are essential to a smooth and efficient flow of activities.
