"Obtaining these certificates is the confirmation for the Houweling Group that we have actually organized the processes surrounding our service. We are ready for further growth", says Hans Fransen, Quality Manager at the Houweling Group
Audits were held on location, policies and measures were assessed and employees were extensively interviewed. Hans: ''We are proud of this achievement and we will do everything we can to keep the certifications. Internal and external audits take place every year.
