The international standards describe high requirements for the respective management systems and are regarded as a seal of quality for the high-quality working methods of companies.

As a leading player in the textile dyeing and finishing industry, Sedo Treepoint has always accepted these challenges in order to achieve maximum sustainability combined with the highest quality standards. With success: the manual fine-tuning of the past has been successfully replaced by automated processes and consistently high quality is guaranteed by integrated management systems. With the renewed certification in the most relevant and world-leading standard areas of quality and environmental management, TÜV-Saar has now confirmed Sedo Treepoint’s excellent performance and highest standards for the third time in the last five years. Customers can therefore be confident that Sedo Treepoint professionally and comprehensively fulfills the requirements of international standards in terms of the quality and environment of products and services through to daily business practice.
Integrated quality management based on DIN EN ISO 9001
Integrated quality management in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 refers to a systematic approach to ensuring and continuously improving the quality of products or services in a company. The norm defines requirements for a quality management system, including aspects such as process design, customer orientation, risk management and continuous improvement. It sets standards that help companies to work more efficiently, increase customer satisfaction and build trust with their customers and stakeholders.
This means that DIN EN ISO 9001 is the most important standard both nationally and internationally and forms the basis of a continuous improvement process for Sedo Treepoint’s internal quality management system. Sedo Treepoint was first certified for this in 2019 and has been successfully renewing the seal of approval ever since. From new customer acquisition to existing customer support and from personnel management to order controlling and project management, the focus is on transparency in all work processes. These quality requirements start with extensive incoming inspections of all products supplied and extend through all internal processes within the day-to-day business, right up to the best possible fulfillment of customer requirements and product as well as service quality. Especially for the development of the company, it was an important step and underlines the commitment of management and employees to work according to the standards in terms of customer satisfaction and the continuous optimization of internal processes.
Top performances in environmental management
In addition to the DIN EN ISO 9001 recertification, Sedo Treepoint has also been recertified by TÜV-Saar in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 14001 environmental management standard. The DIN EN ISO 14001 certification complements the existing quality management certification perfectly, as not only quality issues but also environmental impacts are crucial to Sedo Treepoint. Because: The audit confirmed that the environmental requirements of the ISO standard are fully met and even exceeded. Since 2019, Sedo Treepoint has continuously reduced its carbon footprint, in particular through measures such as a 100 KWh photovoltaic system and an equally large second-life battery storage solution, which have reduced electricity consumption by more than 50 %. Employees also benefit from this by being able to charge their electric cars cost-free at one of the two electric charging stations. For example the complete electrification of the company fleet in terms of purely electric cars, the circular system of electricity generation, storage and electric mobility represents the key element of environmental management and exemplifies Sedo Treepoint’s carbon-neutral vision.
Werner Volkaert, Managing Director of Sedo Treepoint GmbH, is highly delighted with the two ISO recertifications from TÜV-Saar: “Sedo Treepoint has been making an important contribution to the promotion of sustainable textile finishing practices for years, with a focus on both quality and environmental aspects. Receiving our third certification in just five years makes us more than proud and underlines our commitment to the path we have taken.”
