Quality, Health, Safety and Environment above all !

DEQUACHIM is ISO 9001:2015 and ECOVADIS certified, and places quality at the heart of its actions. The safety of its employees and its commitment to the environment and society are of equal importance. All new investments and new product launches are subject to a detailed analysis of the risks and environmental impact of the entire production process.

The integrated management system is thus organised into several processes that facilitate management activities and decision-making.

Our QHSE commitment

We combine agile values with continuous quality improvement techniques by:

  • making change “a desired ally rather than an enemy to be resisted”
  • demonstrating creativity in the search for more adequate solutions
  • viewing relationships as each party being the other’s customer and vice versa
  • seeking collective rather than individual optimisation
  • investing in the development of our employees

01.

We guarantee high-quality products and services

We ensure compliance with regulations and our clients’ specifications through rigorous quality control at all stages of the process. From the receipt of the raw material to its transformation, via packaging, storage and maintenance of our industrial equipment, the integration of numerous professions (welding workshop, maintenance, general services etc.) allows us to control the entire chain.

Our laboratory is run by a motivated team and is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment (ICP, ion chromatography, laser granulometer, X-ray diffraction, specific surface analysis, X-ray fluorescence, etc.).

02.

The safety, health and well-being of our employees is of paramount importance to us

Internal control plans are rigorously established to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. Our employees are aware of their role and responsibilities.

A training plan is set up annually in many areas (ergonomics, PPE, technical skills, etc.) in order to make everyone aware of effective actions.

An ethical charter also guides our daily behaviour.

03.

We take care to control our energy consumption.

We raise awareness among our suppliers and ensure continuous technological monitoring in order to opt for production, management and shipping solutions that are as respectful as possible of our natural resources.

Our perfectly integrated 7-hectare site means we can avoid unnecessary external transport.

Our concern for the environment means we are keen to recover our waste internally by optimising and recycling the by-products of our manufacturing operations.

Since 2004, we have also been operating as a recovery center for hazardous and non-hazardous waste in Belgium.

We produce green energy

Since 2013, we have had 7,900 photovoltaic panels producing a total of 3,700 kW, reducing our carbon footprint by 1,412 tons of CO2 each year.

04.

We take our social and corporate responsibility to heart

We support local sports and charitable initiatives, such as the women’s team of the Frameries Rugby Club, youth aid association Le Gai logis, Doctors Without Borders and Unicef.
