ZECK - Service Team
ZECK began the production of special purpose machines for overhead line construction in 1966. The development of the world’s first puller-tensioner combination machine in 1973 was one of ZECK’s most important pioneering achievements. The manufacturing of machines for catenary construction started in 1996. Both were great steps, which positively influenced the history of our company.
In 2005 there was another highlight for ZECK, when our line car LF 923 was honoured with the Bavarian State Award. ZECK has established its good reputation thanks to its unresting dedication to improve details in close cooperation with its customers worldwide. Thanks to continuous innovation and the resulting technological lead in the process of development, our machines have an internationally leading position in terms of reliability, technology, efficiency and safety.
To further develop our organization, to plan, implement, monitor and improve our quality relevant activities and especially to guarantee a high level of customer and employee satisfaction, Zeck has introduced a quality assurance system according to DIN EN ISO 9001.
Our QM system is implemented in the whole company and is checked and certified by an accredited certification authority.
In order to maintain and continuously improve our quality management system, we have provided the following:
- We have determined all operational procedures and described them in specific documentation. These procedures are regularly monitored, assessed and analyzed, in view of continuous improvement.
- We attach importance to professional further training. High-quality products are the result of highly professional employees. Our company distinguishes itself by the high percentage of skilled labor.
- The upper management ensures that all information and resources are available in order to guarantee an effective QM.
- All responsibilities in the company are clearly defined. All employees are integrated into the decision making process at an early stage. Thus we highly motivate our employees, which is in turn reflected in their loyalty to ZECK over the course of several decades.
Our tireless drive to improve details in close contact with our customers worldwide has helped us to establish our good reputation among all other manufacturers of special purpose machines.
Thanks to continuous innovations and the resulting technical lead, ZECK machines enjoy an international leading position in terms of reliability, technology, efficiency and safety.
