Sustainability at Ramén Valves

For us sustainability involves everything from how we design and manufacture products, to how we engage our suppliers and what we offer our customers. We should always assess risks and thereby ensure the health and well-being of our employees, the environment and others affected by our activities.

We are also responsible to assess opportunities and it is our absolute belief that a conscious organization will give rise to new business opportunities. One of the opportunities we have recently seized in regard to our environmental work is the additive production of titanium control valves. Read more about our additive manufacturing and its environmental benefits here.

Environmentally friendly surface hardening

As a step in our continuous efforts to achieve a more sustainable production process, we have chosen to eliminate the use of hard chroming in our manufacturing processes. Instead, we have replaced it with the eco-friendly SuperExpanite® treatment on all our valves, a gas-based process recognized for having the lowest carbon footprint in the industry.

We take responsibility for our supply chain

Every third year we conduct a supplier evaluation and in between we keep a constant dialogue with our suppliers. A minimum requirement is that they are certified according to ISO 9001 and 14001 or that they can display similar documentation. When possible, we also carry out personal visits.

Being conscious is part of our daily operations

We aim to give our staff the necessary knowledge and authority to contribute to Ramén Valves being an environmentally responsible company.

  • At the start of the employment all members of our staff undergo a course in how to be environmentally conscious at a workplace.
  • All members of the staff have at least one assigned task that intends to reduce our environmental impact.
  • We have an appointed safety representative who’s role is to monitor the work environment management at the workplace.
