In the middle of February, the worldwide leading nuclear engineering company AREVA has carried out an audit at BENTELER Distribution Germany (BD Germany) and confirmed that the company fulfills the high requirements for quality management systems of nuclear power plants KTA 1401. According to AREVA, the quality management system of BD Germany meets these conditions for sales and distribution of carbon and stainless steel tubes. 

After successfully passing the audit, BD Germany has received a confirmation of conformity for the standard KTA 1401, which is valid until 2018. “Quality plays an important role for us”, explains Andreas Menzenbach, Head of Quality Management at BD Germany. „Thus, we invest in a good and effective quality management system and we are pleased to receive the confirmation of AREVA, which is proof of a good performance of our quality management system.”
