Quality Management

The KURZ company philosophy is based on three pillars: Customer focus, technological leadership, and corporate quality. The DIN EN ISO 9001 compliant quality management system we have implemented serves to support this philosophy.

The KURZ Quality Management System

Customer Focus as a Concept

KURZ has played a decisive role in the development of the hot stamping process from its beginnings. At KURZ, everything has always revolved around our customers. Quality and innovation are of the utmost priority when it comes to hot stamping. Maintaining consistently high quality guarantees lasting partnerships with our customers. Regular market analysis ensures that market trends are recognized in a timely manner and can be taken into account in product developments. The matching of market information to our technical capabilities is the task of product group teams comprising product managers, developers, and production engineers.

Technological Leadership Through Quality

Only thorough planning and constant quality monitoring can secure sustained technological leadership be maintained. Market requirements, innovation, and product quality are embodied within our product development. The manufacturing quality prescribed in the product documentation must be strictly adhered to. We regularly validate all processes, from order receipt to delivery. Automatic monitoring and control processes are used wherever possible. All results are logged without omission and in a reproducible manner. These measures not only meet product requirements, but improve quality and our processes.
