Product and service quality at Optibelt is first class. This has been confirmed by TÜV in North Hanover during a re-certification process involving the entire Arntz Optibelt Group in 2014.
The adaptation of the current quality management standard TS 16949:2009 took place in the original Höxter factory as well as the production locations Optibelt Produktions GmbH in Bad Blankenburg and Optibelt Power Transmission (Taicang) Ltd. in Taicang/China.
The S.C. factory Optibelt Power Transmission S.R.L. in Tautii Magheraus in Romania, which was put into operation in 2009, has been certified according to ISO 9001:2008.
Optibelt guarantees uniform quality with regard to products and services for all production facility and distribution companies. An example: Drive belts, which we distribute on a worldwide level, are continuously produced by the same state-of-the-art special machines.
The fact that OPTIBELT sustainably operates and produces with regard to protecting the environment was already confirmed in 2014 during its third re-certification.
The environmental certificate according to DIN EN ISO 14001 was granted for the first time in September 2005. Already at that time, OPTIBELT had proven that it works according to an environment management system in compliance with internationally recognised standards.
Until November 2017, the current environmental certificate applies to all parts of OPTIBELT throughout Germany. According to a recent update, the Taicang/China establishment’s certificate shall remain valid until the end of July 2017.
Arntz OPTIBELT GmbH has received official certification in accordance with the international standard DIN EN ISO 50001:2011 for the introduction of its new energy management system at the Höxter facility.
This initial certification confirms that important prerequisites and measures have been put into effect at OPTIBELT for the sustainable handling of the energy resources in the company.
The aim is to continually improve energy use, energy consumption and energy efficiency by systematically making energy flows transparent and uncovering potential savings. This contributes to a further reduction of energy costs and the environmental burden.
In this way OPTIBELT will also make a substantial contribution to environmental and climate protection in the region in future.
