SMW-AUTOBLOK Telbrook LTD achieves ISO 9001 Certification

11 March 2019
SMW-AUTOBLOK Telbrook LTD is delighted to announce that they have been awarded with certification to ISO 9001 for their Quality Management System by NQA Certification LTD.

SMW-AUTOBLOK Telbrook Ltd is a global leader in the design, manufacture and installation of high complexity workholding fixtures supplied into the aerospace, automotive, bio-medical, oil & gas, defence and food processing industries and as such requires a robust quality management system that not only demonstrates their commitment to meeting customer needs but also, one that can be used as a framework for future growth and process improvements. Their certification covers both the head office in Nottingham and our sister site in Hinckley.

This was a great project with many exiting challenges along the way. We removed the original 2008 version of the standard and started right from the beginning as our original certification body did not question our management system in a way that would facilitate and encourage continual improvement of processes and procedures. I am very pleased that we moved to NQA Certification Ltd as the new certification body as the audit process carried out by Lead Auditor, Judith Hargreaves was professional, well delivered and  challenging. All of which gives us huge confidence in the service and support that NQA Certification Ltd offer for the future.Martin Roe, Compliance Manager, SMW-AUTOBLOK Telbrook Ltd.

Charles Martin, Joint Managing Director of SMW-AUTOBLOK Telbrook Ltd. has been the champion for quality management and has supported the process throughout the life of the project.

This is a huge achievement for our company and I am pleased and confident that we are now at the beginning of a journey of growth and development that will expand our support to existing and new customers alike. This award is the solid foundation upon which we will build our management systems with the goal of achieving further certifications including ISO 45001 and ultimately AS 9100 as we expand our operations in to the supply of aerospace components.

Additionally NQA provided the following statement to commend SMW-AUTOBLOK Telbrook for achieving ISO 9001 certification.
