In order to achieve this we are committed to continuous improvement based on the ISO 9000:2008 and 14001:2004 International Quality Standards.

It is the policy of the Company to achieve this through the continual improvement of the Company’s activities by the planning, setting and implementation of specified and measurable quality objectives by the Management Team and the regular review of the effectiveness of the management system.
This commitment is based on the implementation of a management system that reflects the business requirements of the Company. This management system is defined in a documented manual (SQEM) which provides clear standards and guidelines in all the appropriate areas of the Company’s activities.
The Quality Policy is clearly positioned in the reception area for view of all employees and a copy is provided to all new starters in the induction process. As part of the induction process all employees are encouraged to provide feedback on the way that the Quality Policy and the Safety, Quality, Environmental and Training Plan can be improved.
