Optimisation of production and customisation

All the CAF factories are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and use the very latest techniques in order to optimize production, working to either the ISO 9001:2008 or IRIS Standards, depending on the company in question, in addition to more specific references for each product and service provided (ISO3834, EN15085, AAR M-1003, DIN6701, etc.).

The customisation of our projects and products to meet the specific needs of each and every customer, is an integral part of our business philosophy.
