in the future
Quality is not a matter of chance, and to
maintain high quality standards even less so. Companies which are concerned with
their future achieve long-lasting success when they implement general and
certified quality control systems. A quality management system is critical when
it comes to the sale of a product to the customer, as many quality features go
unnoticed at first glance. Certification ensures that the data the producer
publishes on the label are true. By means of certification by a renowned and
independent quality assurance organisation, the producer is seen as more
reliable by the customer. The quality certificate underlines a renowned and
appreciated brand name and has a similar value.
An idea of the ISO 9001 Quality Control
System can be summarised in one sentence:
Tell us how it is done and continue so to do exactly.
Broadly speaking, the maintenance of ISO
9001 standards requires clearly defined processes and procedures and the
adherence to them in everyday operations. A certificate which confirms this fact
is a milestone on a company's way to high quality. It is a universal language
through which cultural and language barriers can be overcome.
The Lancut Distillery has joined companies for whom a quality policy is a
forward-looking aim, and for whom customer satisfaction is the measure of
success. This fact has been confirmed by auditors from two independent
An audit carried out in 1996 confirmed that
the Lancut Distillery had introduced and applied the Quality Control System in
the design, production and supply of unflavoured and flavoured vodkas and
rectified spirit. The auditors' reports indicate that the requirements of ISO
9001 standard are being met.
The ceremony for the award of Quality System Certificates was held at Lancut
Castle on April 11th, 1997. We are proud to take part in this great event. We
will not forget, however, that he Certificate is not only a reward, but also
holds a challenge and forms an obligation to our Customers.
