Quality, Environment and Safety
As with any other industrial activity, OMNOVA Solutions Portugal (Ex - Resiquímica) success relies on two factors: customer satisfaction and the social and environmental framework it works in.
Product and service compliance to market needs is well consolidated and documented since the beginning of the 90’s through ISO 9001 certification of our Quality Management System.
OMNOVA Solutions Portugal has a long developed corporate culture of responsibility towards the surrounding environment, with high levels of investment in the prevention and control of the environmental impacts of our activity.
This is clearly visible in three aspects: the company was one of the first participants of the Responsible Care programme in Portugal; our Environmental Management System is certified according to ISO 14001 since 2007 and we obtained our Environmental License in early 2008, according to the applicable law.
The Quality and Environmental Management Systems implemented comprise the following activities:
- Concepcion, development, production and marketing of synthetic resins and polymeric aqueous dispersions, produced and performed in the industrial facilities at Mem Martins and office at Valongo;
- Trading of products (imported) related to the paint and varnish and composite materials industries, within the scope of the representation of other companies;
- Production, purchasing and commercialization of products (emulsions) to the Home & Personnal Care Industry.
Conscious of the importance of the safety of people and goods, as well as accident prevention in our chemical activity, RESIQUÍMICA is permanently appraising hazardous situations and carrying out risk analysis for each individual process, with a view to minimizing risk.
