Kementec receives ISO 9001:2015 Certification

    

Today we are happy to share the news of our ISO certification! Although Kementec has been working on an ISO-based system for many years – this certification enables us to offer an even better service for our customers and collaboration partners.

The ISO 9001 standard is used by organizations to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements and to demonstrate continuous improvement.

We would also like to thank our  certification partner DNV GL, for a professional and smooth process

This certification means that the approval process when looking for new suppliers, and everyday issues like yearly supplier evaluations - for both existing and new customers, is much simpler and less time-consuming.  Your collaboration with us can continue with the excellent service we have always offered – now under ISO-Certified conditions!

Kementec continues to support the Danish Cancer Society

Every third Dane is diagnosed with cancer, and chances are that we will all be affected by cancer in one way or another at some point, in our own lives. The disease costs many lives every day, however as we continuously raise the bar in cancer research and treatment - more and more patients survive cancer.

Knæk Cancer is Denmark's largest cancer fundraiser and on 24 October we will join the annual collection and raise money for research, prevention, and patient support. The goal is to reduce the number of cancer diagnoses, improve the survival rates and quality of life as a cancer patient.   

Cancer patients and other vulnerable individuals have been severely affected during this pandemic. Many have isolated themselves for fear of becoming infected.  Visits from loved ones when hospitalized, and their support when receiving difficult messages have been very limited during this pandemic. “Cancer has not become less urgent during the COVID-19 pandemic”, says the Danish Cancer Society's CEO, Jesper Fisker.

As the world comes together to mark Climate Week, the task of combating climate change has never been more urgent. A week to progress together and build a sustainable world.

This week Kementec is announcing the realization of an important goal: To source 100% renewable energy by 2020.  Today, we run solely on power generated by renewable energy sources and Kementecs Sustainability Team continues to build on our green efforts.

Manufacturing companies like ours have a much broader role to play when it comes to reducing our impact on the environment and putting sustainability at the heart of our business. Making our products and brand more sustainable and reducing our overall environmental impact, we strongly feel sustainability must be an integral part of all our functions and will be a key differentiator for us.

At Kementec we offer a product line called ECO-TEK, which provides our customers with a unique opportunity to meet their sustainability goals and to achieve their regulatory requirements. By reducing the toxic effect in the manufacturing of immunoassays the environmental footprint is minimized, and a safer work environment is generated. It is our vision that all new Kementec products will become ECO-TEK and being the preferred choice for the immunoassay manufacture that values green solutions, without compromising on quality, sensitivity, and accuracy.

“With Copenhagen University’s “Green Campus 2020 – Strategy”, we strive to be resource-efficient and operate sustainably every day.
