Another OEZ success in the Czech Quality Program
November has been perceived the Month of Quality in the Czech Republic since 2002. On November 4, 2009 the results of the Czech Quality Program were announced in the National House at Prague – Vinohrady. OEZ belongs to 18 winners of the competition. The „Czech Quality“ mark was granted to the series of modular devices Minia, which were launched by OEZ in 2008. Jan Krejčí, the head of the engineering office, took over the award on behalf of OEZ.
The modular devices Minia are primarily circuit breakers, residual current circuit breakers, overvoltage protection equipment and other devices intended for installation in switchboards. All these devices are mounted on 35mm U-rails according to EN 60715. They are mostly used in residential and administration buildings, but also in industrial installations.
OEZ has succeeded for the second time in the Czech Quality Program. In 2003 moulded case circuit breakers Modeion, which are used mainly for industrial and power applications, were appraised.
Czech Quality is a program guaranteed by the Government. Appraised are products placed on the Czech market, on the basis of tests performed by an independent experienced person or institution. Every year observance of quality is checked, and satisfaction of customers is surveyed. OEZ has got the reward on the basis of recommendation of the Czech Electrotechnical Association - Electrotechnical Testing Institute (ESČ).
The main objective of the program is to recommend high quality products and services with the lowest risk to buy and to differentiate them by the quality mark from the other products including product and services confusing the customers.
"It is difficult for the customer to know what is what about the wide variety of products in the market. New firms arise and new product types and categories come, so that it is more and more difficult to select really high quality goods, which would meet our needs and requirements for long," chairman of the Czech Republic's Council for Quality Robert Szurman explained.
The prized products are from shoemaking, wood processing, textile, automotive, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering industries.
