Quality- and Environmental principles
WE OFFER HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCTS
WITH A LONG LIFESPAN
Focusing on the customer, safety and environmental protection, and following our operative requirements.
We operate under the guidance of quality and environmental systems that are based on the company’s mission and vision. Values are an equally important part of Valtavalo’s operations – we sell sustainable products that improve our customers’ well-being and economic efficiency. The starting point of our product philosophy, as well as that of our operations, is to find the best solution for the customer’s needs.
We follow all valid work legislation and regulations and binding collective bargaining agreements at all our locations. Our employees are trained to perform their tasks and taught about the company’s practices, and their expertise is maintained with regular training sessions.
We design, manufacture and test the majority of our products in-house, using only advanced technology and the highest-quality components. In addition, we ensure that the overall needs of our customers are met by offering products from high-quality and responsible operators. We monitor supplier quality and continuously develop our products and practices.
Our intent is to be an example to other companies in the field by making environmentally sustainable choices based on our values. At the end of their long lifespan, our LED tubes and their materials are easily recycled.
Production materials are acquired from Finnish suppliers as much as possible, and we try to select environmentally friendly shipping options for long-distance deliveries. We have paid special attention to our product and packing materials to keep them non-toxic and their manufacturing environmentally friendly. We reuse our production material packaging as material for packing customer products. Our packaging consists mostly of renewable cardboard and wood pulp instead of plastics.
The most significant Valtavalo environmental factor is, however, our widely available LED tubes. During its lifetime, a LED tube will save up to 1,500 kWh of electricity, which, if converted to carbon dioxide, comes up as 310.5 kg. (0.207 kg/kWh, source: Climate Calculator)
Valtavalo’s operations in Finland are certified according to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard and the ISO 14001:2015 environmental management system standard.
