Kuyer Metaal has invested in the development of its organisation and employees as part of a carefully crafted strategy with the purpose to take quality and workmanship to a higher level.
After earning the ISO 3834-2 base standard for welding in 2008 we continued to optimise our welding processes and as a result, we also earned the NEN EN 15085-2 CL2 in 2011 for various material groups and welding processes for steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
NEN EN 15085 is a European rail welding standard, specifically for welding railcars and components during production or while carrying out repairs. This standard contains the requirements that are demanded of the welding manufacturer. The added CL2 certification provides the areas in which Kuyer Metaal can fulfil this welding work.
Modules and separate components are produced according to this standard for various international clients. These components are fully produced and assembled at Kuyer Metaal.
There is only a select group of companies that are allowed to carry this certification in Europe, and only a handful of companies in the Netherlands. A NEN EN 15085 certified company works under the stringent oversight of an accredited, independent supervisory authority, which is SLV-Berlin in the case of Kuyer Metaal.
