Company Values

Mission

With a customer-centric approach, we strive to create valve controllers and positioners that enable our customers to operate their critical valve systems in the safest, most efficient, and environmentally friendly way possible.

Environment

At Val Controls, we wish to ensure both the internal and external environment, and we therefore focus on the environmental conditions associated with our activities.

The external environment is affected by the waste we produce from our production and from other activities, and therefore we manage the sorting of the waste so that the subsequent handling and disposal takes place in the most optimal way for the environment.

Wastewater from our processes is reduced and we now have only sanitary wastewater. Similarly, we are continuously working to optimize the consumption of electricity and heat, so that we make the best use of energy.

The internal environmental conditions are monitored through Workplace Evaluations, which the safety organization continuously prepares. Thus, in the safety work, we focus on physical, ergonomic, psychological, chemical, biological and accident hazards, and through action plans we ensure the proper development of internal environmental conditions.

We do every effort to prevent accidents and injuries, and detect, evaluate and learn from the accidents or accidents that almost occur. We wish our employees to experience Val Controls as a good, healthy and safe workplace.

Quality policy

We wish to be known as a credible and competent partner for our customers and suppliers. We want to be considered an innovative company having the human and the financial strength to be a responsible partner offering a good service.

Our quality policy is to ensure that:

• We meet demands and expectations from our customers.

• Our core and support processes are working well and efficiently.

• Our suppliers meet our demands and expectations.
