QUALITY AS A RAISON D'ETRE 

Talgo considers quality as one of the pillars on which its leadership position is founded and which is present in all areas of activity: manufacturing, rolling stock maintenance, as well as maintenance equipment.

We have a sound Quality Department System, which is certified according to ISO 9001 and the railway certification International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS).

Our Quality Policy rests on the following aims: to ensure full customer satisfaction with our products and services, to encourage a constant search for improvement, and to standardise our procedures so they may better adapt to the global and regional nature of our activities.

The continuous extension of our activities is directly linked to this concept, so one of the main goals of our Quality Department is to institute a common Quality System in all our work centres.

Our special procedures are monitored according to the most demanding levels of quality set forth by the railway industry.  Thus, we are certified with a CL1 class according to standard EN 15085 for aluminium as well as steel welding control; and with class A1 according to standard DIN 6701 to control adhesive bonding activities.  In both cases, Talgo has achieved the highest levels required by these standards.
