Investing in the future

To ensure the continuing success of the company investment is constantly made in its people, the infrastructure, the products and the processes. On-going training of staff helps ensure a high skill set and motivation leading to long and loyal service. The wholly owned factories and other buildings are maintained to a high level where the latest machinery provides increased efficiency to help maintain a commercial cost base for its products.

The future will require that the company reduces its carbon footprint on the environment and suitable investment initiatives will be undertaken by purposeful design, purchasing less polluting and more efficient equipment and a change of human activity to achieve this objective.

Quality & Environment Control

The company sources only quality components and materials, manufactures to established and approved processes and achieves third party test verification on finished products. ISO 9001 Quality Systems are implemented and the company supports its activities by information lead web sites and trained and experienced sales staff forge relationships with its many and varied customers to achieve high levels of customer service.
