Product quality and liability

  • End-user satisfaction
  • Economic value for all its stakeholders
  • Suppliers’ Code of Conduct
  • Responsible management of the supply chain
  • Quality Policy

End-user satisfaction is the final expression, a logical consequence, of a company strategy aimed at Sustainability, in which all of the IMA's resources are involved by taking part in company processes.

In July 2019 a completely revised multimedia version of IMA's Quality Policywas issued, and subsequently distributed to all IMA's employees in Italy and abroad. The new version focuses on the alignment with the IMA Digital Agenda for Industry 4.0, which is currently being implemented.

  • experimentation and implementation of new technologies, technological scouting, creation of international cooperation relations, cooperation with research centres: performed by the Innovation structure.
