Tried-and-tested (Boltze) quality.


More than just a promise.

Since the company was founded in 1964, BOLTZE has lived by the credo: ‘successful quality management = satisfied customers’. Our activities have remained true to this simple equation ever since. If we fulfil the quality requirements of our customers and they do not perceive how much effort goes into this, we have done our job, and done it well.

 

Quality management: multistage testing. 

19 members of staff at our office in Hangzhou (China) primarily deal with this essential topic, while further seven colleagues manage quality assurance in Germany.

Before an item is ready to go on the market, it goes through a four-stage quality management system so that the result is a high-quality product with a legible EAN code that complies with legal requirements. During the procurement process, we direct our full attention to quality-relevant factors such as material, construction, use and packaging. Upon receiving commercial samples in Germany, we once again check all products before we commission the production process. During production and before the goods leave the country of origin, further production checks are carried out by our local quality control team. Finally, another quality check on incoming goods takes place at our German logistics centre. Only once the quality standard has been guaranteed do our goods get the green light for dispatch.

 

The team of experts receive regular training.

All BOLTZE quality control staff, and our suppliers too, are always up to date with the latest quality requirements. We visit and inspect our production facilities on an ongoing basis. In doing so, maintaining market standards and regulations are just as much a part of our work as partnerships with independent test institutes and test laboratories.

 

The company philosophy: quality also applies to our social responsibility. 

BOLTZE also takes social responsibility very seriously and supports the VFI’s ‘sozial-fair’ initiative and the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). The BSCI’s Code of Conduct is based on the conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child and on the Convention to the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the UN Global Compact, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and other internationally recognised agreements.
