Where quality products are made
Groeneveld products are made to last, and they do. All over the globe systems can be found that are in operation for decades. Read below all you need to know about our manufacturing processes.
In-house manufacturing and development
Groeneveld assembles all of its products in its own manufacturing facilities. That is why the company has its own development centres in the Netherlands, in Israel, for safety products, and in Italy. Machining operations are outsourced, while components and other production materials are also purchased from specialised suppliers, complying with Groeneveld’s strict quality requirements.
Committed to World Class Manufacturing
Groeneveld has always taken quality very seriously, as customer satisfaction starts with the highest quality of our products and services. However, what was good yesterday is not automatically good enough tomorrow. Therefore, Groeneveld is on the road towards World Class Manufacturing, incorporating lean manufacturing and lean development principles.
Proven track record
Since the Groeneveld Manufacturing Operations started in 1986, the operations gained a proven track record. During the last twelve years, the factory produced, amongst others, more than 450.000 Twin, SingleLine and Speedlimiter systems. In the same period, almost 45.000 CompAlube and 62.000 Oilmaster systems were produced. Nowadays Groeneveld offers a comprehensive range of automatic lubrication, safety support and oil management systems, all developed and manufactured in house.
The manufacturing operations can be found all over the globe. The main factory is located in Cassago Brianza, Italy. While the other factory in Valmadrera, Italy, functions as a supplier for the Cassago Brianza factory. The plant in Plymouth, UK focusses on inter alia the production of the MultiLine automatic lubrication systems. USA based manufacturing operations focusses on the production of the same product line, dedicated for North-American customers. The four plants are supported by inbound and outbound logistics and quality control.

Continuous investments in R&D
Each year, Groeneveld invests more than 5% of its turnover in the development of new products and the further development of existing products. As a result, Groeneveld has been able to supply leading products that perfectly meet the requirements of its customers for more than 47 years.
IATF and ISO Certifications
IATF is the highest quality standard in the demanding automotive industry and goes well beyond the well-known ISO 9001 standard. Like ISO 9001, which Groeneveld satisfies since the early 90s, ISO/TS is geared towards process quality. Nonetheless, IATF 16949 sets out in more emphatic terms the requirements for the quality management system regarding the design and development, production and installation of automotive-related products. The latest and most stringent automotive quality standard places a far greater degree of emphasis on aspects such as continuous improvement and preventing mistakes and waste. Aspects you can do plenty about, especially on the shop floor. This new standard is much more closely involved at the level of production staff and is more in tune with tools such as Six Sigma and Kaizen.
Of course we take care of the environment by keeping the impact of our operational processes on the environment as small as possible. Therefore Groeneveld is also ISO 14001 certified.
