GL’s “Alternative Product Certification” (APC) is becoming more and more popular throughout industry.
The certification of materials, structural parts and components is vital for ensuring safe and reliable shipping operations... The year 2010 saw more than 100 European, Japanese and Korean companies opt for this modular system of certification...
VIGOT holds the following Germanischer Lloyd certification: · Recognition Certificate, Test Module II according to GL-Guideline VI-6-2, No. GL-APC 19861-11 HH
“Pilot project” stamping authorisation
Our exhibition stand at the SMM trade event in Hamburg (Germany) was the venue chosen by our CEO Lars Blatt to sign the Germanischer Lloyd authorisation regarding “Alternative Product Certification” (APC). This makes us one of the first three European companies whose processes have successfully passed the corresponding audit.
The Germanischer Lloyd APC authorises companies to inspect their products. VIGOT GmbH is therefore now entitled, subject to observance of the relevant GL guidelines, to inspect and document its products and then issue test certificates that are recognised by GL.
This means that our customers save both time and money.
Forty years as an Eaton/Aeroquip main dealer
We had reason to celebrate at around this date. Our joint CEOs Rainer Jäkel and Lars Blatt, along with authorised signatory Ulf Steck, received an award at the Eaton representatives’ event for Germany/Austria/Switzerland/BeNeLux held in Bad Neuenahr (Germany) in November 2008.
We can look back over 40 years of successful partnership as a main dealer of the company Eaton/Aeroquip, and look forward to further partnership-based cooperation with this globally active group.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our deepest thanks to the management and employees of Eaton Fluid Power GmbH.
