The quality of our valves is verified by certificates of internationally recognized quality management organizations, manufacturing processes and the product itself. ARAKO is a holder of system, product and supplier certificates that meet all statutory standards, but the best evidence of quality production is primarily the references of our customers, especially repeated supplies of valves to primary circuits of nuclear power plants, both on the domestic and foreign markets.
Throughout the manufacturing process, we put the emphasis on first-class product quality, which is provided by quality department specialists from material receipt to product dispatch.
