Dating back to the founding of ARCO by Jose Ferrer and ever since, he has instilled the motto “quality is built in” throughout the organization, driving home the idea that quality is the result of doing things right the first time, from the start.
This idea of quality has become over the years the driving principle behind management of the company, not just in the domain of manufacturing, but across all activities of the firm (Total Quality.)
Employing a management system based on Total Quality has allowed ARCO to be in a position to receive the following distinctions, recognitions and certifications in different areas of company activity:
Having been the first Spanish manufacturing firm to receive AENOR N certification for gas valves, ARCO products have achieved recognition for quality as shown by the many product certifications the company has received.
ARCO, according to its quality policy, has maintaines its accreditations and certifications obtained. Its producs are aproved and certified by competent certification bodies of different countries.
ARCO works to achieve a safer world. Thus, they were the first manufacturer in Spain to be certified by AENOR N for gas valves. ARCO's main concern, to offer the maximum guarantee on all products, has lead ARCO to be a relevant member of the Technical Committee of Standardization 60 for gas equipment and accessories, certification Technical Committee 53 for gas equipment and accessories and the Working Group of the Committee for Standardization of gas in Spain.
