Long technical life: Tested Quality

Valcucine has always focused on sustainable development by means of an on-going commitment that makes it possible to substantially reduce the environmental impact of its production. Our consistent and constant dedication to eco-friendly production, led us to be the fi rst Italian kitchen cabinet makers to obtain the UNI EN ISO 14001 environmental certifi cation in 2001.

 

Other prestigious certifi cations followed suit.

 

We carry out rigorous quality and material resistance tests on every element that composes our kitchens in the Valcucine Laboratory every day. To mention just a few, tests are carried out for stain and light, impact, scratch, heat and water resistance. To certify the quality of its materials, Valcucine relies on CATAS, the largest Italian furniture and wood products research and test centre that is a benchmark for Italy and for the whole world. We do all this to ensure that our furniture is produced using only the best materials that meet the requirements of our end users. These materials are carefully selected on the basis of the results obtained from the most advanced methods of analysis.
