Values & Ethics
Experience, ideas and innovative solutions, the competence and flexibility to respond to the market requirements for a well-being which protects the environment, respecting the very precise values on which Giordano Riello based his mind-set since 1961, when he founded Aermec. Respecting these values, which are the ethical values of a Brand, is the key to the international success of Aermec. When designing and manufacturing its products and system solutions, Aermec places its focus on every detail in order to respect the environment, reduce pollution, save energy, safeguard health and improve well-being.
Aermec recognises the specific value of its people, and places high priority in protecting and elevating their wellbeing. Aermec’s working environment favours teamwork and the desire for personal and professional growth.
In line with its global presence, Aermec respects and values the differing cultures and habits represented by a worldwide population, whilst never forgetting its debt towards its local territory, which has offered it the support and resources in its successful growth.
Quality & Certifications
Aermec has addressed the challenge of global competition with determination, focusing on innovation in all its aspects. Not just technological innovation and advanced research but also process innovation: starting from the highly automated integrated factory all the way to the adoption of the most sophisticated logistics management techniques, in full collaboration with suppliers; from the rationalisation of delivery times to the adoption of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems providing full traceability of products and components. All this ensures that the customer receives the quality and services that make Aermec an undisputed industry leader.
Product quality is measured by the satisfaction of customer needs and expectations and is achieved through coherent projects, optimal selection of materials and innovative production processes. The “Aermec quality” philosophy defines that the product, starting from the conception of the idea, must be the result of careful analysis based not only on the real needs and expectations of the customer but also those of the intermediaries involved (designers, installers, service engineers). This ambitious objective relies on teamwork, integration of skills and the collaborative spirit that contributes to the formation of the “Aermec family”, in which everyone works towards both the development of the final product solution and the pre and post-sales technical support services, thus contributing to a precise and strong company identity.
Aermec quality is fully certified: since 1993 by ISO 9001, the company quality certificate; and since 2013 by ISO 14001, which certifies the company’s environmental management process.
Aermec’s certifications cater for a worldwide audience, confirming the quality for which Aermec is renowned.
