A Wining Team, A Business Development Focused Culture!
Fostering Creativity  
We motivate our employees to suggest creative solutions to daily problems and develop new techniques to improve productivity and quality, taking advantage of currently owned technology.
Controlling environmental impact  
Investment casting is characterized by the use of huge amounts of electricity and fossil fuel in order to reach the high temperatures needed by the industrial furnaces utilized during the process. The energy lost in the process, in form of thermal energy that escapes to the environment is also very high. Additionally some of the substances used in the process may have adverse effects on the surrounding ecosystems.
Heat Recycling System
  Conscious of the impact of CO2 emissions in the global warming, and immediate impact that our process have on our surroundings, we have designed a system that allows us to recover the energy that dissipates into the environment in the form of heat. Through a system of pipes, we heat up water with the thermal energy originated from the industrial furnaces and redirect it to the places in the process that require of that heat. In this way we reduce CO2 emissions and achieve great savings on fuel cost. Thus, we can prove to our customers and the market in general that taking care of the environment is not an extra load on the company’s budget, but a profitable investment for the business and a gift for future generations.
Residual Water Treatment
  Aware of the effects that some of the substances employed during the process may have on the water sources, we have set in place a residual water treatment system to mitigate the environmental impact of our processes.
 
Continuously Improving Quality  
We believe that continuous quality improvement is the key to low defect rates, which is translated into shorter delivery times, outstanding quality and excellent customer service.
Empowering Our Collaborators  
We empower the different organizational groups to improve their own systems, while taking into account their impact on other groups. We believe that all departments can cooperate to build and maintain a strong organizational base on which we can continue to build up for increased business and production capabilities.
Supporting our human resource  
We believe that our collaborators are the most valuable resource of CITIMETAL, and we constantly help them to further develop their skills. In this way, and thanks to the loyalty of our employees, we have accumulated valuable technical knowledge throughout the years. Is our policy to keep steadily building up our knowledge through talent management. By doing so, we take advantage of our experience and the support that modern computer technology can offer to improve our processes and to increase customer satisfaction levels.
Encouraging a Win-Win Attitude  
We believe that been honest with our customers, employees and suppliers can create synergy that will improve the quality and profitability of every part of the supply chain. Our suppliers and our customers are also part of our Wining Team!
