Lödige Industries subsidiary in Hong Kong has achieved certification for quality management (ISO 9001:2015), environmental management (ISO 14001:2015), and occupational health and safety management (ISO 45001:2018).
The company, a leading supplier of material handling systems, delivers airport logistics, automated parking systems, lifts, warehouse logistics solutions and logistics control software—from planning, designing, and manufacturing through to installation and maintenance.
“The certification is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to quality, health, safety, environment and continuous improvement, a journey that began with the certification of its German head office in 1997,” the company said.
Lödige Industries’ Hong Kong operations were audited by SGS, one of the world’s leading inspection, verification and certification companies. The local subsidiary, launched in 2004, serves as its Asia Pacific headquarters, where it currently employs over 250 staff across eight offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
“Throughout the accreditation process, we documented, reviewed, developed and implemented robust management systems for these core areas of our business,” said Nicholas Tripptree, managing director of Lödige Industries for Asia Pacific.
“Lödige Industries has a long history of combining a strong focus on customer benefit with a firm commitment to protecting our personnel and the environment,” he added. The German manufacturer was earlier selected to modernise dnata Singapore’s cargo warehouse at Changi Airport by May 2021.
