KNOWING THE PAST IN ORDER TO LOOK FORWARD22
OVER 40 YEARS OF PROFESSIONALISM, COMPETITIVENESS AND INNOVATION TO SATISFY AN EVER-EVOLVING MARKET
Provides was established in 1968 as a company which specialised in the production of metallic office furniture. Between 1973 and 1980, it also specialised in the construction of racks, aluminium telephone booths and step ladders and, finally, in the production of pressurised gas tanks both for LPG automotive and domestic use.
In 1991, it started working in the air conditioning sector and, in 1996, it designed and manufactured the first series of heat exchangers.
Since then, Provides has grown and has become a leader in the heat exchanger sector. This was possible thanks to its many resources – a company structured around and identified with its own work force such as a responsible, determined and enthusiastic team dedicated to the research, development and production of heat exchangers.
WHERE THERE IS RESPONSIBILITY THERE IS QUALITY
CONTINUOUS CHECKS AND RIGOROUS TESTS FOR A STABILITY WITHOUT PRECEDENT
Our certifications mean we supply valid guarantees of our high quality, reliability and safety.
Provides has had the ISO 9001:2000 certification since 1996 and, in 2003, it also obtained the ISO14001 certification for the environment. Through our clients, a wide range of heat exchangers have the ARI and EUROVENT certifications.
Thanks to the respect for the Workers Health and Safety Management System, in May 2013 it obtained the ISO 18001 certification and, as of April 2013, it also follows the Organisation, Management and Control Model (Ex D.Lgs. 231/2001) , which envisages suitable measures to guarantee that the activity complies with the law and to identify and eliminate potentially risky situations. It also has the ASME, PED, AS 1210, GB and CRN certifications.
As regards the marine sector, Provides uses tubesheets coated in CuNi and anti-corrosive resins that are also used on the whole water tank. DNV, RINA, LLOYDS, Class NK (Japan), ABS, GL and NR13 certifications are also part of the Provides “package”.
Constant checks and attention during processing are essential to guarantee a product that is up to current market standards. Provides is particularly dedicated to this aspect, and is ready and willing to obtain new certifications to meet the specific needs of each client.
CONTROL AND PROTECTION TO THE SMALLEST OF DETAILS
WE BELIEVE IN TRACEABILITY AS PART OF OUR STRENGTH
The traceability of each phase of the productive cycle and the registration of each processing phase guarantee the high quality of products.
The company is committed to being responsible: all products/materials are certified and are completely traceable thanks to a computerised system.
The same system also ensures that the materials used have the certifications required by the client and certifying body and comply with regulations concerning pressurised containers. The objective
is to become the best producers of high quality products. This is why transportation is also optimised, thanks to frames that have been designed to fill containers without leaving empty spaces and heat exchangers are pre-filled with nitrogen and packed singularly to avoid corrosion.
UNLIMITED SOLUTIONS FOR UNLIMITED APPLICATIONS
FROM SHOPPING MALLS TO SKYSCRAPERS, FROM AIRPORTS TO INDUSTRIESWE ARE EVERYWHERE, JUST LIKE AIR
The way heat exchangers are designed means they are suitable for all kinds of structures: despite standardised production, each unit can be prepared according to the needs of the client. Colours, supports and connections can be customised in order to adapt them to the specific needs of clients and therefore to any type of building.
