There are fundamental requisites such as quality, which are an absolute value that cannot be missing from a company that defines itself and is renown as an industrial reality of unquestionable level. Quality is not just a word and needs to be certified. MOVING, in order to offer only the best of the Italian technology and style, has undergone a long series of management and, first in its business, of product certifications.
Since 1993 the CATAS institute has been acting as an independent third party in the product certification field with its own “CATAS QUALITY AWARD” brand, testing and assessing the compliance of a product with regulations and technical specifications. The companies willing to offer their customers a greater added value, can certify their products through the systematic and constant intervention of an independent institution like the CATAS. CATAS QUALITY AWARD (CQA) is the one and only, real product certification. This is not just a simple certificate that records the results of tests on a single sample, but it is a document that refers to the whole production of a specific model, because it is issued only after standing surprise tests. MOVING was the first company in the office chairs field to obtain this certificate for as much as 6 lines of product. The technical regulations of the CATAS QUALITY AWARD – Office chairs is based upon the EN 1335 1-2-3 norm. This regulation implies:
An office seating certified by the TÜV is a product guaranteed under the quality and safety aspects by an institute of absolute professionalism as the TÜV Rheinland Group. The certified seatings undergo strict tests carried out by experts and this guarantees the end user the truthfulness of the information coming from a third independent institution. The TÜV experts routinely check the production processes in our factory, so to verify that there is a correspondence between the products manufactured and the tested sample. This is the only way to guarantee that the certified products maintain their performance characteristics.
With the purpose of supplying its clients with high performance office chairs, Moving has obtained the 1IM ministerial homologation for some of its products; This is the strictest parameter regarding the reaction to the fire of padded furniture and it is a mandatory requisite in the furnishing of public areas of industries subject to fire prevention such as congress halls, hospitals, hotels, etc.
Because, without quality there is no Moving: office chairs that comply with the strictest requirements of solidity and of reliability, that follow a production process subject to the most hard-and-fast checks, also in regard to safety. From the design to the choice of the materials, from the cutting, the assembly, the painting and the sewing processes till the final testing, Moving is characterized by a philosophy based on the highest quality. In order to certify the quality of the company, the environmental management and the health and safety management on the work place, Moving relies on an agency of undoubted professionalism and absolute rigor: the Swiss Association for Quality Systems and Management (SQS). With its periodic verifications, the SQS guarantees the respect of the regulations through certifications that are acknowledged all over the world.
The ISO 9001:2008 regulation determines the main conditions a company should comply with in order to be defined a ‘’ quality’’ company at all levels. SQS has certified the unique capability of the company to meet the demands of its customers, its authentic corporate culture, the organization and the proper management of equipment and of resources, the constant improvement, the relationship with its suppliers, the perfect manufacturing of its products.
Every MOVING product is the result of a manufacturing process respectful of the environment. At MOVING the environmental management system is certified in compliance with the ISO 14001:2004 regulation, whose effective criteria are worldwide renown. The company has undergone strict tests by the SQS, that has assessed its capability of managing and keeping under control possible environmental risks, obtaining this highly valued certification.
The safety management system certification regards the constant improvement of working conditions and of the employees’ protection of safety and health, through an improvement of the consciousness of the risks in the work place. Also in this field MOVING has obtained the certification by the SQS, for its compliance with the OHSAS 18001:2007 regulation.
In order to certify and to guarantee the absolute quality of its products, Moving relies on the main Italian institute of research & development and test laboratory for the wood-furniture business: the CATAS. The periodical interventions and the accurate tests are important occasions for the assessment of the quality of every Moving chair to the smallest detail.
