The Metos brand is a guarantee of quality - Metos FI
Metos' high-quality product range
Metos' extensive product range is partly based on the company’s history, which is more than a hundred years long. Some of the brands in our selection – such as the famous Wexiödisk dishwashers for professional kitchens – were originally our own and have since grown into their own brands on the market.
We also have a long history with several leading professional kitchen brands. For example, Hällde has been our partner for half a century, and Rational's ovens, known and appreciated all over the world, have been exclusive to Metos since the beginning.
Other manufacturers’ products in the Metos selection
New products added to our product range are selected based on our own know-how and evaluation, and on the phenomena and trends of the industry and the needs of our customers. Staying up-to-date on the market is one of the most important parts of our professional product managers’ jobs. We take into account, among other things, the development of the operating environment and the industry, sustainability, our goal of always being at the forefront of development, and our mission to help our customers succeed.
We only accept products from other manufacturers into our selection after careful consideration. Before a new brand becomes a part of the Metos product range, it goes through a thorough assessment process. The product must meet our exact criteria.
”All products must be tested thoroughly before they can be accepted as part of Metos' high-quality product range. We are very critical about it – the product must be able to do what is promised.”
– Technical Support Manager Kari Willman
The Metos logo is a guarantee of quality
Before we accept products from other manufacturers into our selection, they undergo rigorous testing. The backgrounds of the products are carefully investigated and documentation – for example maintenance instructions, user manuals, spare part documents and technical data – is obtained for inspection.
Our own Technical Support Center inspects the products with extreme precision and performs detailed technical tests on them to ensure the safety and capacity of the equipment. For example, in operational safety testing, electrical and mechanical operational safety is investigated. In capacity testing, the actual consumption data is checked to ensure that the product is capable of handling the nominal capacity. Inspection reports are written for the tests and reviewed with the supplier. The entire testing process can sometimes take a very long time before the product is finally accepted into the Metos selection.
Metos' technical know-how is top-notch, and our technical guides are used and requested in the industry in several expert forums.
Sometimes the equipment is also tested in environments that are as authentic as possible. In these tests, selected products are made using the equipment, so that comparative information can be obtained, for example regarding baking times. The tests can also measure, for example, the equipment's energy consumption. Sometimes products are also delivered to customers for testing to obtain durability information. Naturally, one testing place is also our own Maku restaurant at the Metos Center.
However, we don't just evaluate the products and their technical features, we also evaluate the suppliers. If the supplier’s own quality assurance process is good, it influences the selection process. The suppliers' values and responsibility is one of our most important evaluation criteria, which we assess with the suppliers' responsibility survey.
