Qualitiy Policy 

Quality is in the SCHMID Group a multidimensional term which is lived and applied uniformly in the whole group.
Quality represents for SCHMID beside first-class product quality also the quality of all business processes and services.
The constant quality targets deviate from our company values and are:

  • To achieve customer satisfaction by means of perfect products and excellent service
  • To impress customers and to be for all SCHMID customers preferred supplier
  • To produce optimal quality under economic circumstances
  • To conduct and develop permanently mastered processes in the whole value-added chain and the supporting domains
  • Lived partnership with our suppliers and other business partners
  • Content staff due to good working conditions, partnership with each other and first-class teamwork across all hierarchies and departments

The management determines regularly the degree of target achievement by means of key figures which reflect the quality standard internally and externally.
The responsibility for the preservation and the further development of the quality management system is actively forced by the management and is considered as one of the top targets.
