In-house technicians or technicians of distributors trained by Groeneveld, install the products in the most professional way. Every install for each application is engineered and documented by Groeneveld’s technical department. The installation manuals serve as a guideline for the installation ensuring that all products are installed in the best way. A guarantee that each installation meets the high Groeneveld standards.
Groeneveld assembles all of its products in its own manufacturing facilities. Machining operations are outsourced, while components and other production materials are purchased from specialized suppliers, complying with Groeneveld’s strict quality requirements. The company continuously invests in people and machinery in the constant drive to increase productivity, efficiency and quality.
Quality of products and processes is paramount. As a first-tier OEM supplier Groeneveld is of course ISO 9001 certified, while Groeneveld Manufacturing Italy is ISO-TS 16949 certified. Of course we take care of the environment by keeping the impact of our operational processes on the environment as small as possible. Obviously Groeneveld is also ISO 14001 certified.
The company has two plants in Italy, near Lake Como and a small operation in Israel for Greensight sensors and related software. The main plant is based in Cassago Brianza, with the second plant located nearby in Valmadrera. In the Cassago plant all main components are assembled, as well as kits and electronic components. Also the Product Development, Engineering and the central warehouse are located in Cassago. The Valmadrera plant houses the sub-assembly operation and hose production, thus being a supplier to the main factory.
