PROMSA certifies its manufacturing plants

From April 2021, it will be mandatory for manufacturing companies to have a quality certificate; a new means of ensuring that the products supplied to the construction site meet the established standards.


Times change and regulations accompany us in these transformations. In 2019, the Ministry of the Presidency published RD163/2019 with the aim of protecting the overall quality of concrete, guaranteeing the production control of concrete plants throughout the manufacturing process.

From 1 April 2021, it will become mandatory for manufacturing companies to have a quality concrete certificate, a new means for construction companies to ensure that they are building with concrete that meets the established standards. Concrete users must ensure that they use concrete manufactured in certified plants.

Promsa meets all the requirements in 100% of its facilities, certified by LGAI technological Center, SA (APPLUS), an entity accredited by ENAC (National Accreditation Entity).

APPLUS technicians have audited all Promsa’s manufacturing plants located in different parts of Catalonia, as well as the three in-house laboratories that carry out production control. Based on the concept of total quality: PREVENTION, QUALITY, ENVIRONMENT, the established parameters are examined to guarantee the integral control of production.

During the inspections of the facilities, the controls of raw materials and their traceability have been inspected: analysing both the manufacturing process and the finished product, ensuring the frequency of the tests and compliance with the results obtained.

In the environmental aspect, the minimum generation of waste and the appropriate treatment of the minimum waste generated is controlled. The control of water use is also evaluated, assessing its minimum consumption and the controlled use of recycled water for the manufacture of concrete.

At the safety level, the correct functioning of all devices is examined to ensure the safety of all persons in contact with the production process.

A fundamental point, in order to guarantee that the product obtained is of high quality and that it can be manufactured and served to customers, is an optimum maintenance plan for the installations. Promsa applies it in a preventive manner, which allows maximum availability of the concrete manufacturing facilities with full guarantees.

Promsa has passed all the reviews, with the confidence of having been working for years with high quality standards in all the company’s businesses: concrete, aggregates, mortars, works and environment. In all divisions, our objective is to guarantee product quality and customer satisfaction.
