In keeping with its strategic plan, “Let’s go further”, Winoa is continuing to roll out its roadmap.
The goal of improving our ecosystem alignment with sound processes and shared values is all the more important since our company has industrial and commercial operations on all continents, with a total workforce of 1000.
Protecting their health and safety and complying with environmental standards has always been our highest priority: all our plants hold OHSAS 18 001 certification. Eleven out of twelve are also ISO 14 001-certified, and the twelfth will be by mid-2017. In the near future we are also considering extending ISO 50 001 certification to all our facilities, thus reaffirming our commitment to reduce our energy consumption.
By striving to maximise our teams’ operational efficiency we are also able to boost our clients’ productivity.
Here are a few illustrations.
Over the past five years, the Winoa Academy has given more than 300 employees from 20 different countries opportunities to share their experiences of optimising blasting processes: adjusting machine settings, changing products, introducing premium products, etc. Last spring Winoa inaugurated its sixth testing and research centre in Houston (Texas), enabling it to develop advanced training programmes and test new products and services in actual conditions. Thanks to this investment, Winoa will be able to build development partnerships with leading industrial firms in North America.
Last but not least, growth is driven by implementing new solutions for preparing or renovating metal surfaces. These solutions can save up to 30% of the total cost of an operation, while also bringing about much faster completion times and reducing waste by more than 90%. In addition to supplying the best shot-blasting facilities, Winoa enables its clients to boost their performance thanks to its "Phenics" machine range and its ability to deploy its technical teams world-wide.
Let’s go further!
