Quality has always been a must, especially for the most experienced silo manufacturer in Europe, for more than 70 years. Today, the Prado Silos team has successfully completed the renewal campaign of its quality certifications, notably the ISO 9001 standard for Quality Management Systems. This certificate guarantees Prado Silos’ compliance with continued improvement, management efficiency and environmental protection requirements, while maintaining its top quality standards as well as optimising the safety of its products.
For more than 70 years, quality has been the most important added value for Prado Silos. Hence, becoming the most experienced manufacturer of flat-bottom silos in Europe requires a set of professional skills aimed at continuously improving the quality of service, thereby ensuring the fulfilment of our clients’ expectations and extended compliance with applicable standards and regulations. Finally, this also includes a critical analysis of internal policies, processes and procedures that can contribute to higher production efficiency, more effective warehousing solutions, a sustainable business development and improved customer service.
With a view towards continued leadership in quality and client service, the Prado Silos team has recently renewed its ISO 9001 certification concerning Quality Management Systems, issued by the standardisation agency AENOR. The compliance with this standard constitutes one of the main areas of quality performance and, in many industries, it also represents a legal or contractual requirement. The ISO 9001 standard requires companies to clearly establish and follow an effective quality management process, including the obligation to identify areas for improvement and the adoption of measures for their subsequent optimisation.
This standard establishes a working method designed to improve the quality of products, aiming towards client satisfaction and user safety by ensuring the fulfilment of specific requirements. The ISO 9001 norm was developed for the standardisation of the Quality Management Systems both in public and private organisations, with more than one million entities certified worldwide.
When the time comes to decide whether to invest in a silo for an agricultural operation, for example, trusting in a manufacturer with quality labels guarantees compliance with safety standards and regulations that exclude the presence of any hazardous element for human or livestock health. Accordingly, the objective of Prado Silos lies in mobilizing all resources to improve quality, formally attesting that their state-of-the-art storage systems are always available, totally hygienic and adapted to the current needs of the agri-food industry.
The construction process of each silo also plays an important role here, and depending on the materials used in the manufacture, its performance, lifecycle and other conditions may vary. Prado Silos has always used top quality tested materials for the manufacture of the silos and their accessories, thus ensuring the proper operation and lifetime of each installation, accordingly with their operating specifications. These are extremely important tools at the very infrastructure of the agri-food value chain: with state-of-the art silos, compliance with ever demanding quality standards can be ensured, as well as the necessary regulation’s fulfillment for consumer safety.
Nowadays, modern silos are part of a wider process involving the public image of agri-food industries and the quality of their products. Consequently, it is crucial to rely on high quality storage solutions, with full guarantees, specifically designed to meet the requirements for the proper storage of each product. Year after year, the granting and renewal of the ISO 9001 quality certification work as a guarantee of Prado Silos’ commitment to the manufacture of quality products, providing user safety for its clients all over the world.
