Product design and quality
Functional Scandinavian design, uncompromised quality and constant innovations are the elements that each Kungs product speaks for. Therefore, many of our products have a 3 year warranty promise.
We test all products and components in our own in-house laboratory before starting mass production. The products will be exposed to extreme temperatures and parts are twisted and bent thousands of times before we are convinced that mass production can be started. This is our standard process for all new Kungs products.
Our quality assurance is monitored in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard.
Our key pillars in product testing can be divided into four areas
- Uncompromising product development: We systematically perform durability and functionality tests in all phases of our product development.
- A dedicated in-house testing laboratory: We test all products, components and raw materials in our own advanced testing laboratory.
- Weather-exposure testing: We test our products both for extreme freezing temperatures as well as for heath and UV radiation.
- Quality assurance in our production: All stages in our production include quality controls, and we test all raw-materials before commencing production.
Environmental leadership in our category
High environmental awareness is a cornerstone of our operations. We design and produce long-lived products, with replaceable parts, and use recycled materials in production. We stand for durability and quality over throw-awayism.
We walk the talk and focus on concrete actions in environmental leadership. Our production sites in Finland are 100% carbon neutral and we have our own solar power plant on the roof of our factory in Kokemäki, Finland. In addition, zero waste goes to landfills and all excess plastic from production is reused in our factories.
We are a leader in our industry in circular economy: over 45% of the total plastic used in our production is already of recycled origin. Recycled plastic causes 80% less CO2 emissions compared to virgin plastic granulates. We use a wide variety or different recycled raw materials, and explore and test new ecological materials continuously.
We use the ISO 14001 environmental standard for environmental monitoring.
