Quality

Quality policy

To meet customer requirements for quality, cost, delivery, and safety, we make a concerted effort to clarify organizational roles and responsibilities and improve employee competence, thereby continually improving the effectiveness of the quality management system.

An ASME-certified company

RK Engineering received ASME certification on December 4, 2012. ASME certification addresses technical standards for manufacturing power boilers and pressure vessels. We are the first Japanese company based in Vietnam to have obtained ASME certification for manufacturing power boilers and pressure vessels, another sign of our commitment to excellence in manufacturing power, chemical, and food plant equipment in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam and China.

ASME stands for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Of the various standards established by ASME, the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code sets forth safety regulations for the design and inspection of pressure vessels and nuclear power plant equipment.
