Our Production

Taking responsibility as global market leaders

In our production, we benefit from modern facilities and from healthy and safe working environments. We care for the environment and for sustainable solutions, and have obtained several certifications which we are proud of, such as;

  • ISO 9001 - in respect of quality management,
  • ISO 14001 - in respect of environmental management, and
  • the international standard for occupational health and safety management (OHSAS 18001).

The certifications demonstrate our reliability as global leaders when creating sustainable solutions across the world. Solutions which are always created in decent and secure working environments. 

We are aware of the importance of reducing the electricity consumption, as it adds to the emission of CO². We are also aware of the fact that clean water is a scarce resource. Therefore, the AVK Group has outlined a number of very strict objectives for our production companies as far as electricity and water consumption are concerned. Consequently, all of our companies put high efforts in reducing the consumption wherever they can and even get a direct saving as a side benefit.

Every AVK employee is motivated to identify areas of improvement in the way we do business to the benefit of the environment. We do not only focus on activities and processes in our manufacturing companies, but also on the behavior and business model of our suppliers.


Recycled materials in AVK production

From development to production, we focus on innovation, quality and efficiency. For us, this means to consider the entire process and its impact on our society and environment.

Practical re-use of plastic bottle caps

In this video by AVK Nederland, experience how they turn plastic bottle caps into quality products.

Every year, a huge amount of recycled plastic find its way to our production sites, where it gains new life as pallets and surface boxes. Among many other types, the recycled plastic include soda caps collected by students from primary schools in the Netherlands. The young generation is our future, and it is important that they recognise and cherish our nature, and see the value in sustainability.


Efficient reuse of (AVK) plastics

Each year, 6000 tons of waste materials are consumed by AVK Plastics, from which they make new and high quality products, extending the lifetime of “old” plastics with another 50 years
