Merkendorf, October 2014


The Merkendorf site passed examination for ISO 9001:2008 certification

Merkendorf. The manufacturer of biogas plants agriKomp was successfully awarded with the DIN ISO-9001 certificate. The Franconian company is rewarded for its high quality standards and feels well prepared for developing further its competitive advantage in Germany and on an international scale.

As a renewable energies company that has been active from the very start of this branch of industry, agriKomp tackled the way in sprint from a two-man business more than twenty years ago to the medium-sized international company with ca. 500 employees today.

Robert Bugar: "We would not have been able to master our fast growth so well had we not started to put things on the right track early considering the political framework conditions. Among other things, we established processes and introduced standards to have the necessary space for action for our actual core competence, i.e. the sale of new plants and service of existing plants." An important milestone on our finishing line is the successful ISO certification now, here at Merkendorf.

The frosty wind that has been blowing in Germany, in particular against the biogas branch, both manufacturers and operators alike, for more than two years now caused the ruin of some companies. agriKomp had to make adaptions too to still be able to decide its course freely itself. The company that rests on solid fully equity-financed feet strives to stay a strong and reliable partner of its customers also in the future. The best prerequisites exist for that: Innovative products with a high quality standard regarding technology and service and continuous further development

Biogas plants have been built by the Merkendorf company for more than 20 years. The certification has been utilised to have existing processes scrutinized by independent third parties and to start optimisation measures wherever necessary.

Considering the good result the company management and employees know that they are still on the right track - to be a reliable partner for their customers also in the future.
