MIYOS inner and outer values
As a sustainable company, conscious management is a necessity for viRaTec. Here you can read what that means for us exactly:
Our intelligent MIYO irrigation system makes it possible for every garden fan to water their plants as needed and with little effort - no matter when, where and how. The quality and design of the components are just as important to us as sustainability and transparency. What does that mean in concrete terms?
Quality in production and cooperation
"For me personally it is important that our transport routes are as short as possible and that our value creation processes also happen within the EU," says viRaTec CEO Roland Grösslich. For example, MIYO's pretty packaging comes from Germany. We also work closely with the plastic injection molding company in Vienna Kristen & Zahalka together, who also supported us in the development of MIYO. The sustainable family company can look back on more than 60 years of success and has convinced us from the start with the highest quality standards, innovative know-how and maximum flexibility. And while we're on the subject of quality: The high-quality plastic granulate from which MIYO's casing is made remains dimensionally stable and color-fast even under the toughest conditions. “White products for outdoor use are a real challenge because they can easily turn yellow and become brittle. So that none of this happens to MIYO, we spent a long time looking for a suitable material and finally found what we were looking for in France, ”says Grösslich happily.
Sustainable cooperation with Team Styria
The electronic equipment and the assembling of MIYO happens in Graz at Team Styria, which, as the largest Styrian integration company, gives people with disabilities the chance to gain a foothold in professional life. Our cooperation with Team Styria is based on values such as quality, reliability and flexibility at competitive prices. “If a person is deaf, for example, and can therefore no longer find employment on the open labor market, he can still pursue a demanding job at Team Styria and, for example, take care of the inner workings of our smart irrigation systems. I especially like the special corporate culture that focuses on people and their skills and needs. We share and support these values, ”says Roland Grösslich, adding viRaTec to the list of well-known companies that work with the integrative company, such as Remus / Sebring, ThyssenKrupp or Team7. Before MIYO can leave Graz, every electronic component is subjected to a functional test and every device is carefully tested.
MIYOS CE mark
Of course we have also extensively tested our MIYO in the laboratory, which goes without saying with our high quality standards. In addition, our intelligent irrigation system has a CE mark. This is mandatory for some products in the European internal market, as it serves to unify standards. Compliance is determined by a conformity assessment procedure. “At the end of the day, with my signature, I guarantee that our products are built in accordance with the rules and comply with the applicable standards and guidelines of the EU,” emphasizes Grösslich.
