Quality as a certified process
The quality of our products and services has to meet the highest international and national criteria. Beyond that – and above all – it has to completely fulfil all customer expectations and customer-specific requirements. Tackling such constantly changing challenges successfully requires first and foremost an awareness of quality, which is dynamically cultivated and carried forward by all our employees across the entire Group.
further development results in ongoing process and procedural optimisations, which are implemented and confirmed as part of our EN ISO-9001 and EN ISO-14001 certifications.
- EN ISO 9001: Austria, Germany, United Kingdom, Hungary, Czech Republic, Italy and Spain
- EN ISO 14001: Austria, Germany, United Kingdom, Czech Republic
- Further highlights of our headquarters in Austria are the EN ISO 13485 certificate for medical products and the EN ISO 22000 certificate for food safety
360° TECHNiCAL EXPERTiSE
Critical to our success is the further development of our core competencies, formulations and masterbatch production. We are constantly working on improvement measures in our own laboratories, while ensuring high quality standards. Around 100 technical employees optimize existing products and develop new recipes and formulations in careful consultation with our customers.
The technical departments of Product Stewardship, Research & Development, Colour Center & Service, Additive Center & Service and Technical Service & Applications form the core of our company. Numerous interfaces between these departments ensure the ideal transfer of knowledge – all to the benefit of our customers. A large number of our technical employees can look back on many years of experience at Gabriel-Chemie, and they constitute an integral part of our success.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Research & development is a certified process in our group, which is not restricted only to the various locations. We involve international customers as well as suppliers and cooperate closely with renowned research institutes on a range of development processes. The close cooperation with our research partners enables us to continuously make major advances.
ADDITIVE CENTER & SERVICE
The Additive Center & Service department tests new raw materials, makes recommendations for formulations and produces combination products from colours and additives in cooperation with Colour Center & Service. The tasks of AC&S also include enhancing formulations and production processes. The careful analysis of complaints helps to increase knowledge and, of course, ensures their prevention in future. The department has state-of-the-art laboratory equipment. The standard procedure includes DSC analyses (Differential Scanning Calorimetry), TGA analyses (Thermogravimetry), spectroscopic methods such as IR or UV-VIS spectroscopy, rheological tests with a plate-plate rheometer and a weatherometer for accelerated artificial weathering.
