Vortex Hydra have adopted and maintained for many years in both of their engineering divisions a system of integrated quality management, environmental and safety in compliance with EN ISO 9001, EN ISO 14001 and UNI INAIL SGSL (Guidelines for an occupational health and safety management system). The implementation of such an integrated system allows the company to conduct systematic, rational and effective working methods all to the advantage of companies working with them.
Vortex Hydra recognize that their enviable international reputation has been achieved over three generations by the formation and continuation of specialist skilled staffing who have the capability to solve problems and challenges face on. This has involved focusing on both the transfer of skills and the attendance of annual training courses to broaden, strengthen and increase existing skills even further.
One of the more recent innovative designs by Vortex Hydra is the ‘Rotary-Rack’ system which optimizes the heating and curing of concrete roof tile. This system is now successfully employed by many of the world’s major concrete roof tile manufacturing companies. The ‘Rotary-Rack’ and many other innovative solutions by Vortex Hydra carry international patents and trademark registrations. Vortex Hydra still maintain the vision to continue creating rational and manageable technical solutions placing great emphasis on simplicity and the development of concepts that are easy to implement and maintain.
