At the service of a flexible production system
Technology and Innovation are key factors for Thor, which can ensure a flexible production capacity by managing both the custom-made hoses and products, that are more standard for the market, produced in large quantities.
The control and traceability of hoses are ensured through the production process.
The rubber compounds are formulated and produced inside the Company’s facilities, by carefully selecting the best ingredients getting to the highest quality standards required by the market.
The quality of components is certified by third-party laboratories to guarantee the compliance with the National and International Regulations.
Protecting the environment and the community
Nowadays, we are having to face great challenges in terms of an urgent need for an environmental sustainability in all aspects of our lives. We have an even greater responsibility towards future generations. For this reason, we need to undertake the necessary actions now, in order to make the world a better place. With the same purpose, Thor is providing a major contribution by systematically carrying out the necessary steps in order to reduce the impact of the manufacturing activities onto the environment.

towards a better
Thor is promoting the responsible use of resources and the reduction of the carbon footprint.
Thor is supporting the replacement of chemical substances that have an environmental impact, fostering a responsible management of waste material generated by all activities, encouraging recycling and reuse.
The compliance with the objectives is verified by internal and external audits conducted regularly and monitored, fulfilling the requirements of the ISO 14001 Standard.
Thor’s main goal is the right balance between the creation of economic value, environmental protection and social responsibility as a basis for its future. For this reason, the Company has made a selection of products in order to assess the potential environmental impact. Results are stated in the EPD (Environmental Product Declaration).
This evaluation is made through the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the Products, that allows to evaluate many environmental indicators such as:
global warming potential (total emission of equivalent CO2);
use of energy resources: water, renewable and not-renewable resources;
production of waste materials.
The LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) was carried out according to the requirements of UNI EN ISO 14040:2021 and UNI EN ISO 14044:2021. The European Standard EN 15804:2012 + A2:2019 served as core PCR (Product Category Rules). Furthermore, PCR 2019:14 Construction products (EN 15804:A2) was the reference PCR for the study. The LCA made by Thor has taken into consideration the PRODUCTION STAGE (Upstream and Core process, from A1 to A3 incl.), the END OF LIFE STAGE (Downstream process, from C1 to C4 incl.) and benefits and loads beyond the system boundaries (module D).
Thor carries out its activities by applying rigorous principles of transparency. The Code of Ethics is created with the aim of communicating the corporate values and principles of behaviour which are at the basis of activities.Download
