Quality right from the start
For us, tested quality right from the production stage means, when choosing our partners in Asia, that we only select companies that produce according to German safety standards and with German manufacturing technology.
All of our pyrotechnic items are CE approved. The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is a scientific and technical federal authority that regularly carries out intensive controls of the NICO quality assurance system in Germany and the Far East.
The high standards guarantee both us and our customers transparency, security and traceability of the products and their production methods. In order to be able to guarantee the quality standards of our products, we also train our employees and, if requested, also our customers. The NICO brand should continue to stand for high-quality, safe and innovative fireworks in the future.
NICO Quality Assurance
We are the no. 1 in fireworks and pyrotechnics for over 100 years. NICO stands for high quality, safe and innovative fireworks. All NICO pyrotechnic articles are CE-approved. The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), as the scientific and technical federal authority, regularly carries out intensive controls of the NICO quality assurance system in Germany and the Far East.
NICO quality assurance and testing consists of a multi-level system. Starting with our suppliers directly at the production sites in China.
In China, the BAM-audited company “ITQS” (International Technical and Quality Services Ltd.) was commissioned by us to test the NICO products during and after manufacture. Only items that pass all specifications and tests and also meet NICO’s high quality standards are exported.
Another check of the goods takes place in Germany. NICO Europe GmbH was audited by BAM for independent quality testing.
NICO office in Liuyang (China)
We attach particular importance to the fact that our products are manufactured in the Far East according to German quality and safety standards. To guarantee this, we opened our own office with NICO employees in Liuyang in 2016. Our on-site presence enables us to develop new items and drive innovations more quickly.
In addition, our colleagues from the NICO CHINA OFFICE take care of the initial checks and quality assurance on site. Together with the BAM-audited company “ITQS” (International Technical and Quality Services Ltd.), we carry out the direct inspection of the NICO products during and after manufacture. Specified test parameters are examined directly on site in order to document any deviations from the approval and to detect manufacturing defects. Defective articles do not even reach the German market.
Thanks to our NICO colleagues on site, we can meet the high NICO standards and guarantee transparency, safety and traceability of the products and the manufacturing process.
