Our quality ethics leave no room for compromise – and that also applies equally to the materials we use, our production processes and equipment, and our delivery and delivery performance.
Certifications according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 document our systematic quality and environmental management. For VPF, quality means above all the best possible service.
We accompany our customers through every step of the value chain, starting with initial consultation and design through to the laboratory and test phase, and finally production. Selection of lengths, fast delivery, small minimum order quantities, call-off orders and flexible delivery schedules are all part of the package.
Multiple inspections of incoming goods, in-process control and finished goods controls assure the highest quality of all the raw materials used and the final products. Continuous inline monitoring of the adhesive application weights on all of our coating lines is just one example of this.
VPF products are REACH compliant
The EU’s REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), which is based on the principle of entrepreneurial responsibility, stipulates that from 2008 onwards no chemical substances may be placed on the market unless they have been appropriately registered beforehand.
In August 2020, VPF-Veredelungsgesellschaft mbH für Papiere und Folien & Co. KG (VPF) started a resource efficiency consultation based on the “PIUS-Check”-method of the NRW efficiency agency. The aim of the project was to increase resource efficiency in production through an optimized, internal value chain at the Sprockhövel facility in North Rhine-Westphalia. The PIUS-Check is intended to help companies to develop economically sensible solutions for this.
The aim is therefore to develop VPF on a longterm basis and to make a sustainable contribution to the conservation of resources. This not only benefits the environment, but also the competitiveness of the company.
This project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF.NRW). (August 2020)
SUSTAINABILITY: ENVIRONMENT & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Companies today are no longer judged by their business performance alone. Environmental and social responsibility are also seen as a measure of how sustainably an enterprise operates. We work continuously on these aspects, which are underpinned by our environmental and quality management systems and the VPF code of conduct
