Rothfuss Best Gabion is now the first company to bear the “GABIONEN” quality mark certified by RAL (German Institute for Quality Assurance and Labelling) in the product-related metals sector. The Quality Association “GfG Gütegemeinschaft für Gabionen e.V.” thus distinguishes those companies that contribute to the further development, distribution and quality improvement of gabions and gabion constructions.
“We are naturally very proud of the award of the quality mark”, says RBG managing director Matthias Möck happily. “I see this as an award for our work in the gabion industry to date and at the same time as a task to advance the topic of gabions even further, be it with research projects, technical developments or the exchange with other carriers of this innovative quality mark”.
Further quality mark users were the engineering office IBH-Herold & Partner Ingenieure Part mbB in Weimar (performance-related area of planning), Bärnreuther+Deuerlein Schotterwerke GmbH & Co.KG, Postbauer-Heng (product-related area of filling materials) and the construction company Deutschle GmbH, Abenberg (performance-related area of construction). The next awards of quality marks to member companies of the quality association will take place shortly.
A constant exchange of experience and information between the members of the Quality Association, the sounding out of optimisation possibilities for products at the highest quality level, the support among each other as well as research projects on the subject of gabions and the continuous assurance of the quality expressed with the quality mark form an important part of the tasks of the Quality Association “GfG Gütegemeinschaft für Gabionen e.V.”
