4 november 2020 - The Catalan metallurgical company Instalaciones y Montajes Margon, dedicated to the design, engineering and manufacture of metallurgical goods, has obtained the “Quality Trusted” certification from the Alstom Group. Thanks to this accreditation, the company, which has supplied equipment to Alstom in Spain since 2007, has become a worldwide reference supplier within the Group.
Margon, based in La Llagosta (Barcelona) and with more than 130 employees, currently partners the Alstom teams in different projects at the Alstom manufacturing plant in Santa Perpètua (Barcelona). This includes the supply of front and end rings for trams in Athens, roof fairings for the Frankfurt trams, cable trays for the Luxembourg commuter trains or metallic interiors for the remodelling of the Santiago de Chile Metro. In addition to the Santa Perpetua factory and the Services unit in Madrid, Margon is already a regular supplier to Alstom's plants in Katowice (Poland), Belfort (France) and La Rochelle (France).
“This certification further drives our internationalisation, by facilitating the provision of services in the 60 countries where Alstom Group operates. Having worked with Alstom in Spain for more than a decade, we take on the challenge of working with different Alstom centres around the world with pride and enormous responsibility”, highlights Juan Martin, Marcom Manager.
More than 80% of the Alstom sites suppliers in Spain are local companies. “We consider our suppliers to be industrial partners. Margon is a clear example of joint development of technologies and projects. Its focus on results, flexibility, technological capability, knowledge of the sector and compliance with commitments have made it a Quality Trusted supplier for the entire Alstom Group”, highlights Mayte Cabello, Alstom in Spain Quality Director.
The “Quality Trusted” programme, launched in 2016 by the Alstom Group’s Quality area, seeks to recognise and promote those suppliers that show an exceptional degree of compliance, quality and integration with Alstom teams. Currently, 27 suppliers around the world have achieved this recognition. Margon is the first to reach it in the Spanish market.
