“The α–ME production system used at Alfa Acciai and Acciaierie di Sicilia is more than a simple quality system. The name alone conveys the strong connection in the group – everyone, as “me”, plays a part in the success of the ALFA brand and manufacturing excellence.
The α-ME is based on the following principles:
Alfa Acciai and Acciaierie di Sicilia implement a Quality Management System in accordance with UNI EN ISO 9001.
In line with the firm conviction that it is essential to operate responsibly and sustainably if a durable competitive edge is to be achieved and in order to address problems involving the production process in a systematic and timely manner, Alfa Acciai obtained cerification of the Quality System as early as 1989, one of the very first in Italy to do so, while Acciaierie di Sicilia implemented it in 2001.
Both Quality Management Systems are certified by IGQ – the Italian Quality Assurance Institute – and IQNet – the International Certification Network – a guarantee that the companies operate in accordance with clearly defined operating procedures and instructions, which are constantly updated in line with the company’s technical and organisational development, from the acceptance of raw materials to in-process test and inspection of the end product.
The quality of Alfa Acciai and Acciaierie di Sicilia products, which is recognised both nationally and internationally, is ensured by the following:
“With the α–ME production system we're aiming to be a reference in the steel industry, in terms of efficiency and quality of the production process, to maximise customer satisfaction.“
