Quality at PROMSA

In PROMSA, we understand quality as a factor integrated in our work process, from the analyses of raw materials to the details of the products, which includes the control of the production processes and their development. All the manufactured products are subject to a strict quality control to guarantee the compliance with the regulations in force, and to provide our clients with the CE markings and type certificates.

 

We have our own laboratories and a large technical team that define and control the compliance with the guidelines established, allowing complete traceability integrated in the work process. To carry out the analyses that allow us to control the quality of all the products, we have specific facilities:

     - 3 laboratories in permanent facilities: equipped with the most modern and cutting-edge machinery, which allows us to perform 99% of the necessary tests to define and control the products we manufacture.

     - 1 laboratory in aggregates plant: to carry out specific analyses of the aggregates that are supplied as raw materials to the concrete, asphalt and mortar plants. Having a laboratory inside the facilities allows us to perform test on the same production line, which expedites responsiveness and guarantees the quality of the aggregate.

     - Mobile laboratory: prepared to cover big works that require a concrete plant on-site.
