Quality statement

Messingwerk Plettenberg is committed to the pursuit of excellence in the supply of brass and copper alloys for its precision strip and MOTECĀ® tubes. Quality management and a culture of continuous improvement under the auspices of long-standing TS16949 (strip products) & ISO 9001 (tube products) accreditations have been identified as major components to achieve this aim.

As a consequence, the quality principles established by Messingwerk Plettenberg will ensure continuity in the supply and provision of all our products to meet our customers` requirements and specifications in full. Our aim at the same time is also to maintain full product traceability through the manufacturing and value chains.

Environmental statement

For several years Messingwerk Plettenberg has been accredited to ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.

Also in 2012 we achieved our first accreditation to ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems.  We are conscious of our responsibility to the preservation of resources and to the environment and there is no legal requirement for ISO50001 accreditation.

However the voluntary implementation and compliance to this standard ensures the optimum use of energy resources and limitations in the environmental consequences of us doing business.  

As an example of our commitment, we offer a free collection of packaging and containers at no extra cost to our customers. Quality products require stable quality packaging. Therefore we supply as far as possible re-usable wooden packaging, which is beneficial in reducing product waste, enabling sustainable production and protecting natural resources.
