NKE Austria is recertified to ISO standards

NKE Austria is recertified to ISO standards

Bearing manufacturer NKE Austria has again passed the ISO audit. The audits were conducted in May 2022 at NKE’s headquarters in Steyr by the certification body TÜV SÜD Landesgesellschaft Österreich.

The certifications ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 apply to the introduction and implementation of a management system for the areas of product development, engineering, production and sales and marketing of bearings.

NKE had originally been awarded ISO 9001 certification at the time of its foundation in 1996. This standard assesses companies’ quality management with the aim of improving their performance. The ISO 14001 standard for Environmental Management, to which NKE was first certified in 2000, assesses their programmes for promoting environmental protection and preventing environmental stress. Initial certification is followed up with regular monitoring audits and checks, and a recertification audit is conducted every three years.

“Once again, NKE has met all criteria of the standards with no non-conformances,” says Matthias Ortner, NKE’s managing director. “As a manufacturer of premium bearings and supplier to the largest industrial OEMs, quality and occupational safety are of paramount importance to us. Through our strategic focus on sustainable industries such as wind power or rail transport, we also consider it a moral obligation to pursue the cause of environmental protection and environmental management. Certification in these standards strengthens and confirms our efforts in these areas, of which we are very proud.

“NKE is committed to making the transition to a more sustainable (bearings) world.” continues Ortner. “Our mission is to become a leading driver of innovation in environmentally friendly sectors such as wind energy or rail transport. We intend to put this into practice on the basis of the powerful branding statement ‘Made in Austria’.”

NKE produces standard and special bearings for all industrial applications. Engineering, product development, production and final processing of components, assembly, quality assurance, logistics and sales and marketing are centralised at its Steyr headquarters. In addition to product development and application engineering, NKE provides a full range of technical services, consulting, documentation and training. NKE’s products are distributed through 12 international offices and more than 240 distribution outlets in 80 countries.
