On December 21st  Mr Andrea Coscia - Division Director TÜV Sud, certifying body - has officially handed over the ISO 9001: 2015 certification to Mr Alceste Vitri, president and founder of the VAG group.

It is an important recognition for a company that, since its establishment, has always believed that quality must be the most important value to be created and pursued over time. Rivacold got its first quality certification in 1995. Since 2000 the company began collaborating with the TÜV Institution.

In recent years the company has grown at a high rate. In parallel with the company's development, also the focus on highest quality standards has raised. After certifications of 2000 and 2008, Rivacold is among the first companies in Italy to obtain 2015 version. A version featuring a new approach called “Risk Based Thinking” and, consequently, new requirements to which Rivacold was able to respond fast and with effectiveness.

The chairman of the Group VAG, Mr Alceste Vitri, receiving the certificate said: "I am proud to celebrate this important milestone in this year so special for us in Rivacold - 50th anniversary of our foundation. High quality is a goal that  we have always wanted to achieve and we everyday work  for, in all of our offices and departments. I therefore thank all of my employees who were committed to this great result. I was very pleased to know that we are among the few companies in Italy to be certified ISO 9001: 2015 compliant. This confirms that Rivacold is increasingly determined to follow the path of excellence, in products and services that we offer "

Mr Coscia after visiting, along with Ms Stefania Pesce, Sales Manager of TÜV Sud area, the advanced test laboratory and production divisions of the company in Vallefoglia, congratulated for the certification process and the high quality standards achieved by Rivacold,  renewing the will to continue the good cooperation with the company in the coming years.
