Herrenknecht Vertical now certified by API

In mid-December 2011, Herrenknecht Vertical was granted the right to apply the official API monograms 4F, 7K, 8C and 16D to its relevant products by the American Petroleum Institute. 

Furthermore, Herrenknecht Vertical is now certified according to the API Standard Q1. This means that its quality system fulfills the rigid requirements of the API. Also Herrenknecht Vertical now holds the ISO/TS 29001 certificate.

"The successful API audit some weeks ago was an important step for us. Being now certified by the largest association of the oil and gas industry, we are able to expand our business to the API dominated markets. This goes hand in hand with the development of new onshore- and offshore rigs." says the general management of Herrenknecht Vertical.
