As part of its ongoing programme of investment in the infrastructure of the business, the management team at NovaCast has been determined to drive up quality standards and expand the capabilities of the business to allow it to compete with the best foundries in the world.
When its ISO9001 certification needed to be renewed, there was an opportunity to demonstrate that the business meets the very highest, internationally recognised, quality standards. In the UK, the way to achieve this is to be certified by a UKAS accredited certification body. UKAS accreditation provides an assurance of the competence, impartiality and integrity of conformity assessment bodies.
As Richard Phillips, Sales Director at NovaCast confirms; “For NovaCast, UKAS accredited certification, testing, inspection and calibration reduces the need for us to be assessed by each of our customers. By choosing to become certified to the very highest standards, we are underlining our determination to operate to the highest standards in all aspects of our business”.
