Stratagrid Manufactured In India Is CE Certified

Strata Geosystems (India) Pvt Ltd announced that 'Stratagrid' is now a 'CE' certified product. The certification was issued by the 'ENTE CERTIFICAZIONE MACCHINE' in Italy for high-tenacity polyester geogrids manufactured by Strata at its plant at Daman, India and allows the product to be sold into the European market.

The CE certification ('Conformité Européenne' or 'European Conformity') ensures compliance with health, safety and environment standards established by the European Union's directives, and is mandatory for certain product groups including geogrids used for soil reinforcement. The product is subjected to the following tests for compliance:

1) Chemical Resistance Test
2) Biological Resistance Test
3) Hydrolysis Test

In addition to evaluation from international and Indian laboratories for all performance parameters, the CE marking assures Strata's ongoing compliance with globally recognized standards for quality management which is intended to increase customer satisfaction.

With the attainment of a CE Mark, the company not only has a better understanding of the needs of the European market, but is also actively working on the market acceptance of Stratagrid in those countries.

Strata India is now better positioned to further increase our leadership position in international geogrid markets, with Stratagrid being manufactured in the U.S. and India with ISO certifications and CE Marks for both production locations. This new CE Mark, combined full Strata integration between the U.S. and India, will offer more options and services to our customers” said Chip Fuller, a Director of Strata Geosystems (India) Pvt. Ltd..
