In 2000 the Bydgoszcz Iron Foundry was the first brake shoe inserts manufacturer to be awarded the ISO certificate in support of high quality castings. The manufacturing process has been governed by quality and control procedures; starting from the technological process to the end product, our brake shoes inserts are subject to strict control. The test cover the chemical composition of castings, strength, hardness and metallography. Our product identification system facilitates determining a specified castings series manufacture time with the accuracy up to 8 hours.
Thanks to our diligent compliance with the applicable standards, we have won the confidence of Polish and international contractors who consider our brake blocks perfect. The State Rail Industry Inspectorate has issued an applicable indefinite-time production certificate. The reliability has been also appreciated by our international partners; the homologation certificates from French (SNCF), Belgian (SNCB), and Russian (RzhD) rail companies.
Our company has been recognised as a well-managed and dynamically-developing. We have won numerous awards; in 2003, 2004 and 2008 - the Business Gazelle award, and in 2007 – the title of the Export Leader.
