General Manager Alejandro Demonte, together with the implementation team, which is made up of Facundo Bastías, Silvina López, and Adrián Rosales, achieved the effective integration of quality, environmental, and health and safety standards into the company’s main technical and support processes. IRAM emphasized that “since the certification of the management system in 2017, the company has shown tangible improvements in its different processes and an increasingly successful and effective integration of its activities with multiple performance indicators to support their performance.”

David Villegas, Operations Manager, said, “This year, Knight Piésold managed to change the scope of processes and integrate a wide range of services, guaranteeing our clients optimal performance and world-class technical and management support.”

The management system’s certification demonstrates Knight Piésold Argentina’s compliance with quality, environmental, and health and safety standards and is a fundamental recognition for the company’s work.

This allows us to raise our standards and is our basis for taking on new challenges.”
