Refrigeration specialist CoolKit underwent a vigorous two-day visit at their Farrington Place premises for just a joint ISO9001 and ISO14001 inspection, scoring 100 %.
CoolKit combined the ISO 14001 standard with ISO 9001 quality management standards in 2016 and is also among the initial companies to integrate the two main standards.
Auditors reviewed all of the policies and operations CoolKit use to create their items to ensure they are traceable, meet excellent standards, and adapt purchasing, supply, goods and document control.
Steve Wilkinson, Head of Operations at CoolKit, said: “It’s a proper achievement to obtain 100 per cent this audit implies that our processes are controlled and monitored.
“At CoolKit we have a proactive approach and still have integrated the requirements into our structure C as opposed to just creating a paper-based exercise.”
The ISO 14001 standard has long been held by CoolKit since 2011 following your company set itself demanding recycling targets – including reducing waste, reusing materials and recycling waste.
Steve added: “The joint audit results stress the product quality procedures now into position and our goal of buying it right first time to be sure customer care and return business.
“We seek to reuse waste products and encourage staff to suggest different functions for it. Everything taken off the van C including plastics, aluminium and wiring is recycled, or reused whenever we can. And, at intervals of checkpoint, the vehicles are inspected to make sure that CoolKit’s high expectations are met when it comes to quality.”
The flawless inspection comes simply year as soon as the growing company expanded into new manufacturing facilities. The firm has additionally invested heavily in new machinery including a new CNC machinery for faster and even more accurate insulated lining kit production and laser scanner to minimise material wastage.
Steve added: “A wide range of what we do is advisable practice therefore we will see the outcomes. We have now kept it easier and we are reaping the rewards through a proactive approach.”
