Advanced production

We carry out all production steps in Altenburg, Germany, where also the FAS refrigeration valves are manufactured. This is how we guarantee the high quality of our entire production. In Altenburg, we have a cutting-edge plant with efficient CNC machining centers, CNC turning, grinding and milling machines, brazing furnaces, a laser cutting system and an internal electroplating workshop. Our focus on all AWA valves always is the same: optimal flow, even under the most difficult conditions. This is why we use the latest 3-D design and analysis software.

Controlled quality

For AWA, the quality of its units is of the utmost importance – that’s why we use the latest measuring and testing procedures. To ensure all AWA products are absolutely tight and comply to the required pressure ratings, 100% of the production is checked with the helium leak test system. This is just one of many reasons why AWA has been certified for quality management under ISO 9001. And our environmental management system certified under ISO 14001 proves that we always strive for sustainability.
