PRECIOSA ORNELA, a.s. focuses its activities on its traditional production program of glass costume jewellery and technical glass, but it intends to gradually supplement this to include special glass products for demanding industrial applications, including for the automotive industry. The introduction of this type of product naturally requires effective and high quality management throughout the entire company, which needs to be substantiated by means of the appropriate certificates acquired from renowned independent certification bodies in order to meet the requirements of some customers.
The introduction of a number of management systems according to international standards, including the certification thereof, began in 2012 (the quality management system, the foodstuff safety management system). A certificate substantiating the non-hazardous nature of the products according to the RoHS standard was acquired one year later. In 2015, preparations began for further certification (the environment management system, the occupational safety management system) and these systems will be certificated this year in June-August. The company also began to deal with the system for the management of social responsibility and the management of the work environment using the 5S methodology in this period. The company has been involved in preparations for the most demanding certification system for quality management in the automotive industry since 2016.
Each of the systems has been implemented in those parts of the company where they are necessary and and economical. We consider the planned and interconnected implementation and the use of all the aforementioned standards to be of significant benefit. This means that we have created an integrated management system (IMS). This system involves several levels of management, starting with the company's top management and the appointed management representative for the IMS through to the implementation team and on to the executive managers and the other employees at the administrative and production centres. The system is supervised both by an external certification body and by internal audits undertaken by the management and by inspections of the operations.

The manufacture of beads in the form of glass cylinders cut from colored rods has its roots in Venice, Italy and dates from as early as the year 1500. From there, it gradually moved to North Bohemia, where it was improved and brought to a state of international renown due to the unique breadth of the product range and the high quality of the products.
