ISO 9001:2008 – QUALITY CERTIFICATE
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)
GALGO was certified as a “Socially Responsible Company” (ESR in Spanish) by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (CEMEFI in Spanish) and the Alliance for Corporate Social Responsibility (ALIARSE in Spanish). This certification recognizes GALGO’s social responsibility to our employees, investors, customers, public authorities, and society in general, as well as our public commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as part of our corporate culture and business strategy.
Concerned about the environment and in support of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program, GALGO sought after and was awarded SMART WAY certification for our low-rolling resistance PRE-Q Tread pattern designs, which are available on several of our products for drive axle and trailer axle applications. The SMART WAY program certification verifies that these designs provide less rolling resistance, resulting in up to 3% fuel savings and thereby cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
NATIONAL EXPORT AWARD
Mexican President, Felipe Calderon Hinojosa, honored GALGO with the National Export Award, ranking us as the best company in 2009 in the IMMEX (Manufacturing Industry and Export Services) category for foreign trade practices, and recognizing our company for its exceptional international trade operations.
Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism
GALGO, in support of the Mexican Government and its business partners in the US, holds a C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) certification in both our Tula plant located in Mexico, and in our Dallas, TX distribution center. This certification shows that GALGO meets the strictest security and efficiency guidelines to ensure our international trade relations are reliable, safe, and long-lasting.
GALGO has achieved certification as an “authorized economic operator” (AEO) by the Mexican Government through NEEC (Nuevo Esquema de Empresas Certificadas – “New Scheme for Certified Companies”), Mexico’s equivalent of C-TPAT. This program applies the same framework as the ISO 31000 standard and ensures that universal safety standards are followed when conducting international business. Its purpose is to facilitate and boost foreign trade while promoting the use of adequate security systems and practices to ensure the legitimacy of its operations and reduce the risk of contamination of goods
