Certificates, recognitions and awards
MIK Celje’s knowledge, own development and production have been noticed numerous times throughout their 30-year existence and have also been awarded business and economic recognition awards and professional certificates.
Here at MIK Celje, we are extremely proud of each and every recognition and certificate which adds value and weight to our work and the efforts that we invest in developing and manufacturing high-quality builders’ joinery and ventilation systems:
The Business Oscars
In 2008, the company MIK Celje received the GZS Award for Economic and Business Achievements by the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce, which is the oldest and the most prestigious reward of this kind in Slovenia.
The so-called Business Oscars are awarded to economic experts who have been successfully managing their own companies for many years. In addition to the overall development results of the company, its business results and the internationalization of the company, the commission also considers other criteria, such as rapid and effective market expansion of the company, a promising vision and a clear long-term strategy, own development and innovation.
The Slovenian Chamber of Commerce (GZS) awarded the Phoenix award to the company 5KMC and to its CEO Nenad Savič for the strategic transformation of MIK from a manufacturer of PVC windows to the manufacturer and provider of a large assortment of window frames, doors and accessories with the purpose of providing the end customer with the best solution in the field of investment, energy efficiency and aesthetics (IE2) for the modernization of business and private buildings as well as for the installation of glazing systems in new buildings.
EFQM – European Award for Business Excellence
In October 2009, our company has been awarded a prestigious European award for business excellence “Recognized for Excellence (R4E)” which is awarded by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM).
The important recognition that only two Slovenian companies have received so far is a confirmation that we are a good team and that we can achieve a great deal with our knowledge and with the values that we embody.
The inclusion of the business excellence model in the MIK strategy and the life of all our employees guarantees long-term success in achieving the objectives pursued at home, as well as a higher degree of competitiveness in foreign markets.
The Silver Guild of the OZS and the Golden Medal for Innovation of the Celje Fair
During the MOS 2010 fair, we presented two innovative products to the public for the first time ever: MIKrovent, a revolutionary local ventilation system, and Energy Windows – smart solutions which improve the quality of air and water in the room.
At their first public presentation, both of these products attracted a lot of attention from the broader and the professional public and have received the Silver Guild award which is awarded by the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as well as the Golden Medal of the Celje Fair.
Quality Label for Construction for MIKrovent® and for the installation of external builders’ joinery
At the Megra fair of construction and construction materials in Gornja Radgona in 2013, we received an important Quality Label for Construction which is awarded by the ZRMK construction institute.
We received the ZKG quality label which stands for the best products and services in the construction industry in Slovenia for the following two solutions: MIKrovent® local ventilation system and installation of external builders’ joinery in new buildings according to the RAL guidelines.
We also received the Quality Label for Construction by the ZRMK construction institute in 2018 for renovated and new local ventilation models MIKrovent Home 30, Office 60 and Professional 120.
In 2020, we received a Quality Label for Construction in the field of RAL installations when renovating buildings using the MIKrovent local ventilation system.
ISO certificates 9001 and 14001
Since 2019, we are proud to have acquired the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards.
ISO 9001:2015 is a global quality management system certificate which defines the requirements for the implementation, execution and constant improvement of processes complying with the requirements of customers and the applicable legal and regulation requirements.
ISO 14001:2015 is a standard of quality and environmental management in a company.
Both standards bring numerous advantages and opportunities for the company, such as a more transparent organization of business processes; process control and transparency of business processes; application of preventive and corrective measures; documentation of procedures in terms of responsibilities; improvement of internal communication relationships between employees; independence of work tasks of individuals; better use of resources; and, indirectly, higher product and service quality and higher degree of customer satisfaction.
