Bureau Veritas Certification has admitted Exel Group's Finnish units, the Kivara and Mäntyharju factories, an ISO 14001 environmental certificate. Exel is the first known pultrusion company in the world to be granted this certificate.

ISO 14001 is an international standard of environmental management systems. An organization implementing the standard recognizes important environmental aspects and risks, and sets up an environmental programme including targets for continual, systematic improvement. Regular audits and follow-up are an important part for measuring progress.

In addition to the ISO 14001 certificate, Exel Group has signed a quality certification agreement with Bureau Veritas Certification. With this agreement the several quality systems of the companies that have joined the Group were certified as one entity. The Group certificate covers, in addition to the Finnish units, the units in the UK, Austria and Australia. We strive at having the certificate to cover also the Belgian and Chinese units in 2007.
