The membership and cooperation of EGO in many important bodies and institutions of our branch have a long tradition. Due to these connections EGO took part, among other things, in the standardization of technologies that are still used today in many processing branches. For our customers this commitment guarantees products which meet the requirements of modern sealing and adhesive technology and offer maximum safety during processing.

The high quality standard of EGO products is confirmed by several independent certificates and reports. Already the first EGO sealants were tested and admitted by several national and international institutes according to the current standards and state-of-the-art technology. Permanent surveillance by independent institutes ensures continuity.

In 1997, the company was certified as per ISO 9001 by the TÜV Management Service GmbH, and in 2018 this was complemented by the ISO 14001 certification. One of our primary goals is quality assurance and enhancement. In order to meet your own and your own growing needs, EGO relies on continuous development of technical equipment as well as the deepening and expansion of the know-how of our employees. In this respect, in 2018 the ISO certifications were adjusted to the latest standard.

Our customers are used to quality and reliability. Our most important performance for you is and will remain the solutions to problems at the highest level.
