Qua­lity without compromise

Our cus­to­mers rely on it every day.

Our com­mit­ment to qua­lity dri­ves us down to the last detail.

Ever­ything big starts in the details. This is exactly where our under­stan­ding of qua­lity comes into play. A large gene­ra­tor, an indus­trial machine, or an EV drive func­tions at peak per­for­mance due to the per­fect qua­lity of each indi­vi­dual com­po­nent, which we at Von Roll have care­fully deve­lo­ped and tes­ted. Our com­mit­ment crea­tes satis­fac­tion among our sta­ke­hol­ders — cus­to­mers, employees, sup­pliers, sub­si­dia­ries, aut­ho­ri­ties, society and neigh­bor­hood, but also among investors.

Our pro­mise

Glo­bal qua­lity manage­ment with local action plans

Our under­stan­ding of qua­lity encom­pas­ses the ent­ire value chain, from supe­rior qua­lity pro­ducts to out­stan­ding cus­to­mer ser­vice. Cer­ti­fied Qua­lity Manage­ment Sys­tems are fully imple­men­ted at every Von Roll site. We con­ti­nuously opti­mize pro­duct and pro­cess qua­lity at every stage — from the raw mate­ri­als through pro­duct deve­lo­p­ment to the use of the pro­duct by the our cus­to­mers. We regard qua­lity manage­ment as an inte­gral part of our work, and the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of sus­tainable and effi­ci­ent manu­fac­tu­ring pro­ces­ses and ser­vices as an exci­ting challenge.

Qua­lity is not just a word, it’s our attitude.

Adrian Vid, Head of Glo­bal Qua­lity & EHS

Sounds good? Let’s get to the bot­tom of it!

Von Roll draws not only on its more than 100 years of expe­ri­ence in the field of electri­cal and ther­mal insu­la­tion sys­tems, we also create new facts every day. The­re­fore, we like to put our­sel­ves to the test on a regu­lar basis. Several rele­vant cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons attest to our high stan­dards in terms of inte­gra­ted manage­ment system.

Glo­bally Manage­ment System

The qua­lity of our pro­ducts is roo­ted on “Swiss Engi­nee­ring”. To keep it that way, we set a glo­bal qua­lity manage­ment sys­tem to faci­li­tate con­ti­nuous improvement.

Envi­ron­men­tal Manage­ment System

Our tar­get is to be com­pli­ant with legal & envi­ron­men­tal regu­la­ti­ons and for con­ti­nuous impro­ve­ment to our envi­ron­men­tal foot­print. We pur­sue pro­jects at all sites to improve the envi­ron­men­tal impact of our busi­ness activities.

Health & Safety Manage­ment System

Our tar­get is to pro­vide a healthy, safe and secure work envi­ron­ment for our employees and visi­tors. The­re­fore, we main­tain a glo­bal Health & Safety Manage­ment Sys­tem accord­ing to ISO 45001.

Auto­mo­tive Qua­lity Manage­ment System

The auto­mo­tive indus­try sets requi­re­ments for pro­cess ori­en­ted qua­lity manage­ment sys­tem that com­ple­ment the ISO 9001 stan­dard. We imple­men­ted this pro­ces­ses throughout the Group, even if cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is focu­sed on our auto­mo­tive sites.

Aero­space & Avia­tion Qua­lity Manage­ment System

There are also spe­cial requi­re­ments for the qua­lity and safety of pro­ducts for aero­space & avia­tion app­li­ca­ti­ons. Our qua­lity pro­ces­ses meet these with fly­ing colors.



How we embrace qua­lity every day

From pro­duct deve­lo­p­ment and the pro­cu­re­ment of raw mate­ri­als to all sta­ges of pro­duc­tion, the con­cept of qua­lity takes cen­ter stage at Von Roll.

Our employees demons­trate their com­mit­ment to high-qua­lity work every day. We sup­port them with well thought-out pro­ces­ses and, whe­re­ver pos­si­ble, with auto­ma­ted and intel­li­gent moni­to­ring solutions.

Advan­ced Pro­duct Qua­lity Planning

Our auto­mo­tive sites are IATF 16949 cer­ti­fied. There, Advan­ced Pro­duct Qua­lity Plan­ning (APQP) is natu­rally an inte­gral part of pro­duct development.

We also apply the bene­fits of the rigo­rous APQP pro­cess to new pro­duct deve­lo­p­ment across all pro­duct groups. In par­ti­cu­lar, ite­ra­tive feed­back and con­ti­nuous impro­ve­ment help us to shar­pen pro­ces­ses as well as to deve­lop and manu­fac­ture pro­ducts fas­ter and with an even grea­ter focus on quality.

Sup­plier Management

For us, qua­lity, envi­ron­ment and occup­a­tio­nal safety are essen­tial along the ent­ire value chain, not just in our own plants. We the­re­fore send our experts, who have years of indus­trial and pro­duc­tion expe­ri­ence, to meet with our most important suppliers.

In addi­tion to com­pli­ance with the Code of Con­duct for Von Roll Sup­pliers, those visits pay par­ti­cu­lar atten­tion to manage­ment sys­tems, imple­men­ted pro­ces­ses and con­ti­nuous impro­ve­ment. Only with the best raw mate­ri­als can we gua­ran­te­e­the high qua­lity of our products.

Sophisti­ca­ted defect detection

Mica paper is the key inter­me­di­ary pro­duct that gives most Von Roll pro­ducts their uni­que pro­per­ties. The­re­fore, spe­cial atten­tion must be paid to the con­sist­ently high qua­lity of all pro­duc­tion bat­ches during this pro­duc­tion step.

We use metal sen­sors to detect inclu­si­ons that can affect the per­for­mance of our pro­ducts. In addi­tion, we use opti­cal sen­sors that scan every inch of our mate­ri­als using advan­ced algorythm.

Ana­ly­ti­cal labs for rese­arch and production

Von Roll has mar­ket-lea­ding, state-of-the-art ana­ly­ti­cal labo­ra­to­ries. As these labo­ra­to­ries already test our pro­ducts during deve­lo­p­ment, com­pa­ra­tive data is avail­able down to the last detail.

As a result, even the smal­lest chan­ges in pro­duct pro­per­ties can be detec­ted during qua­lity tests and the pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses can be twea­ked if necessary.
