Since the beginning of its activity (1984), FINFER has based
its own company policy on a high level performance in terms
of quality and productivity. During the years, the company
has used a management system for quality as an essential
instrument to improve the service provided to the customers
aiming to increase competitiveness on the market, through
the reduction of operating costs, and the improvement of its
own image. To reach these goals, the company management has
adopted and introduced a Quality System in conformity with
the UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 regulation as a privileged
instrument for the company organization and management.
At the same time, FIN FER S.p.a has been provided with a
system of enviromental management together with the quality
one certified by the UNI EN ISO 14001: 2004 in order to
reach a better integration with the surrounding area and
enviroment and to use better the legislative instruments for
the economic development of the companies of the south of
Italy. The achievement of these goals provides prizes for
the companies that pursue these purpose as FIN FER S.p.a
However, this management system allows not only to achieve
the aim above mentioned but it is also an essential
instrument to monitor all the company processes that produce
effects on the enviroment preventig from negative effects
caused by violation of the law .
The activity of FIN FER S.p.a takes place in two sites:
Rotondi where the siderurgical production and trading
takes place together with the processing of alluminium and
Paolisi which has a modern plant for the hot galvanizing
of ferrous products.
Both units are characterized and managed with the same
principle and with the same standards of performances
regarding production, quality and prevention and reduction
of environmental effects.
For the achievement of the fixed goals regarding quality and
environment, the headquarters promise to:
Evaluate and monitor all the effects produced by the
company on the environment during its main or subsidiary
Establishing positive actions as to reduce the most
significant environmental effects.

performances using monitoring and improvement plans that,
together with the use of performance markers annually fixed
by the headquarters Committee, allow to measure, register

eventually produce effects on the environment.

productive sector and also at an extraregional level through
the acquisition of other clients that gradually allow to

Improve the capability of the company to identify and
satisfy the explicit or implicit demands through the
refinement of the company aptitude to listen his customers.
Obtain for the company a better visibility with the
potential or acquired customers considered important for the
market strategy through the certification SQA.
The MQA, which is the essential core of this document, is
the principal means of communication inside and outside the
company. Through the MQA it will be possible to show to a
potential client the reliability that the company can grant
in a contractual relation and proving how the work will be
carried out even before the stipulation of the contract or
before having orders.
With the aim to maintain the QSA certification, the
following action have been established:
The nominee of a representative of the company
headquarters who has autonomy and authority to introduce and
maintain the QSA, applying it himself first and then
involving all the staff. For this reason he will help the

provide the necessary material and economic means for the
achievement of the goals.
The above-mentioned representative will provide, together
with the support of external bodies, to arrange the suitable
work programs that will establish time and modalities of the
SQA adopted. This will provide the right relevance to the
control that is carried out in order to evaluate the
efficiency of the SQA procedures and the conformity of the
documents and of the effective procedures to the law .
In consideration of the importance of the aims that are to
be achieved and the commitment necessary for their
attainment, we would like to invite all the staff, of every
level, to give their own collaboration for the achievement
and updating of the System and to follow carefully the rules
contained in the Guide for the Quality and Environment
Management, in the Operative Procedures and in all the other
regulations concerning this issue eventually provided from
the Headquarters Representative.
Every year, the Committee for Quality and Environment
composed of the General Office, of the Representative and of
the first level functions, on the occasion of the
reexamination of the System, defines and updates the goals
that the organization wants to pursue. Furthermore, the
company verifies that the policy for Quality and Environment
is suitable and also its improvements and updating. In this
occasion all the activities regarding Quality and
Environment are checked together with the respect of the
mandatory regulations and the achievement of the client
satisfaction defining, in this way, the necessary actions to
start the process of constant improvement.
