Olmer dedicates the utmost attention to the continuous improvement of internal processes, to the organisation of flows and to the constant monitoring of performance. As evidence of its commitment to achieving the highest quality standards, the Company's management system has been ISO 9001 standard certified since 1999 for the manufacture and assembly of transmission and lubrications components for industrial vehicles and tractors (IAF 22, 17).
Furthermore, compliance with the specific requirements of the automotive sector is recognised by the IATF 16949:2016 certification, obtained in 2018.
Olmer has recently implemented a series of integrated policies aimed at extending the current certifications to international standards on the protection of health and safety in the workplace and the control of environmental impact. In this regard, the ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 certifications will soon be achieved.
Finally, the Company has undertaken the process of obtaining the IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) certification, a guarantee of the highest quality in the railway sector's supply chain.
Olmer has been using the World Class Manufacturing (WCM) system since 2014. The WMC is an organisational model, introduced in Italy in 2005 by FCA, and is based on the concept of systematic and lasting improvement of the Company as a whole. The goal is to optimise the production process performance in a pull logic, through the active involvement of the whole organisation's hierarchical levels.
In applying the WCM paradigm, Olmer has embarked on a path of change aimed at making the logistic-production process leaner and faster and reducing the processing phases, with an important focus on worker safety and the quality of the finished product.
Olmer embraces the principles of Lean methodology and follows them with a view to flexibility and efficiency in production, organisation, project, supply and purchase processes. In the agile factory, Quality, Cost and Time are the three driving factors underpinning the company's competitiveness. These pillars translate into the following:
