Assurance & Environment
Quality, safety and sustainability are all part of our identity at Agustson, which is why we strive to uphold the toughest standards offered in our field.
Today, our quality department works vigorously at being updated on the legislations in the markets we are exporting to. This work is done in close collaboration with our customers’ quality departments, and the efforts to ensure correctly filled specification forms, answering questions to find a solution, which is workable for the customer as well as for Agustson, has become a particularly important area for our quality employees at Agustson.

Following recent inspections Agustson has achieved Higher Level for both production sites.
