No compromise on quality & safety!

CETAL has been certified ISO 9001 & 14001 since 1994 and has always put quality and safety as the 1st priority.

CETAL has a huge experience (~40 years) with explosion-proof products and pressure equipment (PED).

All over the years, CETAL has been looking for quality improvement to provide the best customer value.

The quality is not only the product quality, but it is also the ability to improve every day, increase efficiency and performance of the organization to provide the best products and services to our customers.

To support this statement, CETAL launched a “lean” program at the end of 2015, involving all company departments (production and engineering).

The management system is based on “people empowerment“, enabling to CETAL collaborators to imagine and implement improvements every day.
