Consistent high-quality to build on

Quality is at the core of what we do, and embedded through our entire organization. Both our plants in the Netherlands and the US are ISO 9001 certified, and that’s for a reason. We invest heavily in having our processes and products tested to ensure every pad meets our rigorous quality standards. Each plant has a comprehensive onsite testing laboratory to test our product characteristics, but also performance. That is what makes the difference in any project application.
