ELBA, a.s. Kremnica has been building management systems since its registration in the Commercial Register in 1994. In that same year we have taken the decision to prepare, build and certify our internal quality management system according to ISO 9001. After a two year preparation period, the company upheld the management system and was awarded the ISO 9001 certification in 1995.

In the same period the company also began preparations for the implementation of an environmental certification in line with ISO 14 001, which was successfully acquired in the year 1999.

Furthermore, the company also has an established system for security management and health protection in the workplace, which was officially certified in the year 2016.
