Hallamshire Engineering Services, a UK manufacturer of materials handling equipment, including pulleys, rollers, and conveyors, has been accredited to the latest ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard.
Part of Group Rhodes, the company achieved the standard through the efforts of its team to align quality processes with the standards already in operation by the group’s other businesses, Craven Fawcett and Rhodes Interform, at its factory in Wakefield.
The ISO 9001:2015 standard was achieved through a programme of internal audit against the policies, procedures, and processes that make up the company’s quality management system. Guided by Group QHSE Manager Graham Howard, a team of qualified auditors carried out a full assessment of Hallamshire Engineering Services’ quality management system, after which the company was awarded the accreditation by UKAS.
“Retaining a high level of quality is an essential element in achieving our business objectives and securing a complete advantage,” said Mark Ridgway, CEO of Group Rhodes. “It is important that quality is recognised as not only applying to our end products and services, but also as an integral part of our operations. Our processes are lean and efficient, yet we continually work at improving the skills of our most valuable asset – our workforce. Each and every employee in our organisation is responsible for ensuring their particular processes are as efficient as they can be, and the management team in turn provides essential training resources to support this task.”
“This standard demonstrates that Hallamshire Engineering Services operates a management system that is not only accredited to international standards, but which has also been built on a culture of continuous improvement,” said Neil Bettley, Operations Manager, speaking on behalf of Hallamshire Engineering Services. “We look forward to continuing to exceed our customers’ expectations with respect to the quality of our products and services.”
