Our friendly, helpful and well-trained staff is essential for the achievement of this goal.

Our cooperative relationship with customers, suppliers and employees inspires mutual confidence and is the basis of a successful and lasting cooperation.

Highest quality standards combined with the spirit of partnership and fairness are success factors, which make DUROtherm a powerful partner – today and in the future.

Corporate Philosophy and Policy

Quality Management

Certified Quality

Ausgezeichnete Qualität

DUROtherm’s high-quality standards are covering all processes: from sophisticated planning over manufacturing to delivery in precise amounts of set quality at the agreed date.

In order to fulfill these high demands, all processes are organized within a framework of quality management according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016. Additionally, audits can be performed according to customer standards. Comprehensive care after a completed project is also considered as an integral part of comprehensive quality assurance by DUROtherm.

Environmental Management

Protection of the Environment

Gut zur Umwelt

The DUROtherm environmental team

DUROtherm feels deeply committed to the efficient application and use of resources and our activities are based on respectful dealing with people and nature. Thanks to consequent increases in environmental performance, DUROtherm successfully took part in the ECOfit-programme of the environmental ministry of Baden-Württemberg in 2015/2016. The environmental management system according to ISO 14001 and EMAS, which was introduced in 2017, makes DUROtherm an even more environmentally friendly and sustainable company today and in the future.

Very often DUROtherm products bring about a better environment: so we succeed more and more often in replacing environmentally unfriendly moulded parts in the market by environmentally friendly thermoformed parts. DUROtherm reusable packaging helps to reduce pollutant emissions caused by transport and avoids waste.
