We entered the Ecovadis circuit in 2016 and from that moment we have continued to renew it.
Even this year, we have been awarded the Gold Ecovadis medal!
Furthermore, thanks to performance improvements, these results reconfirm Affaba & Ferrari position within the 5% of the Companies, evaluated by Ecovadis, which obtained the best scores.
Even this year we have achieved the AA Grade.
We obtained the first FDA certification in 2018.
Due to the inability to travel, last November we carried out an online audit to extend the validity of the certificate. The current certificate is valid until August 2021, other extensions will certainly follow until it will be possible for the auditor to visit us in the coming months.
We obtained the first ISO certification in 2010 and from that moment we have continued to renew it.
I’m proud to inform you that Affaba & Ferrari has recently completed BRC-IOP certification process together with the renewal of ISO 9001:2000.
For our company this success represents a very important stage and, at the same time, represent only step in our predisposition to continuos improvment whitch aims to provide to our customers products and services of hight level of quality.
It is an important award that we received for the program we have started a few years ago, where we tried to combine sustainability with the working environment.
These interventions have led to significant energy savings thanks to the use of innovative production lines and materials, heated spaces through the use of heat from the moulding lines that would otherwise be lost.
The choice of large windows in the production departments also allows us to take advantage of natural light for a longer time, this also resulting in energy savings.
The first beneficiaries of these changes are our employees who have the opportunity to work daily in a comfortable environment for the wide light and temperatures in the factory, which, in addition to being obviously heated in colder periods, are conditioned in the summer in the departments generally warmer for the presence of machines working at high temperatures.
The company celebrated its 60th anniversary.
It was in fact June 1949 when Rosanna Affaba, just twenty years old, founded the company and began to produce aluminum closures.
There was a big party with all the employees and their families to celebrate this anniversary, in addition to the 80th birthday of Rosanna and the stay in the company of some historic employees with 20 and 30 years of service.
