Savaré operates with a Total Quality System and has obtained ISO9001 certification. Its commitment towards Environment, Health and Safety has also lead Savaré to implement ISO14001 and OSHAS18001.
For the packaging of its hotmelt pressure sensitive adhesives Savaré has developed the worldwide patented, unique, environmentally friendly Safemelt technology that is available from both the European and U.S. plants. Products are also available in fiber drums.
