CSU politicians visited Eching am Ammersee to find out about the situation of small and medium-sized businesses there. With their visit, the representatives of the people, among them the incumbent and re-candidate member of the Bavarian state parliament Alex Dorow, manifested their interest in the medium-sized companies of the region. The tour of the production facilities, led by managing director Mathias Klein, provided ample material for discussion on the struggle with energy prices, labour shortages and the current challenges facing the printing industry. Thank you for a stimulating exchange: Alex Dorow (member of state parliament), Siegfried Luge (mayor of Eching), Simone Drexl, Liane Luge, and Norbert Teubner (local mandate holders)!

BIRKAN is ISO-9001 certified!

Conformity of our quality management confirmed

ISO 9001 Certificate

Our company founder Alois Kandlbinder did never fail to ask his customers about their satisfaction: striving for quality has a long tradition and top priority in all areas in this house. BIRKAN has also been working according to an internal QM manual for about 20 years.

Nevertheless, it was once again a great challenge to undergo certification and have our quality management assessed by an external auditor. We subjected all processes in the company to a detailed analysis and introduced small improvements and control steps in some areas. All employees were extremely motivated and accepted the extra effort.

All the more we are now pleased to receive our first ISO 9001:2015 certificate. We thank the whole BIRKAN team for a great performance!

With our ISO 9001 certification, we provide customers, partners and suppliers with internationally recognised proof of competence and performance.
