The “Quality” culture within Faber originated with the establishment of The Company in 1972. This culture derives, in particular, from the market in which The Company operates and has always operated, thereby developing the “Quality Concept” over time. This development has been gradual and constant starting from the simple quality control of the product until reaching the awareness of the need for a complete Company Quality System. Dating back to 1994 Faber's Quality System has been certified according to the now world famous ISO 9001. Additionally, Faber's Quality Management System was later supplemented according to ISO TS 16949 (and now as IATF 16949) and EN ISO 13485, The former certification was aimed at meeting the growing demands from the OEM’s in the car manufacturing industry for our range of seamless and composite cylinders used as CNG/hydrogen fuel gases. While the EN ISO 13485 specifies the precise requirements for the quality management system that has to be used by our Company for the design, development, production, testing, installation and servicing of Medical Devices and represent a milestone in order to maintain a leading position in the market and satisfy our customers’ growing needs for the 21st Century. This is the first of its kind for a gas cylinder manufacturer to achieve worldwide. In addition to the quality system, Faber’s Environmental Management system has been certified according to the ISO 14001, which is a strong indication of our ability and commitment to meet stringent environmental responsibilities demanded by the world at large. Faber’s occupational health and safety management system is OHSAS 18001 certified, showing the ability and the constant care afforded by the Company with to the protection of the health and safety of its employees.
