Artel Rubber Company are proud to announce their successful transition to ISO 9001:2015 Warwickshire based Artel Rubber Holdings Ltd, manufacturer of the broadest product lines of tubing, hose and fittings in the UK, today announced their successful transition to ISO 9001:2015. ISO 9001 helps organisations ensure their customers consistently receive high quality products and services, which in turn brings many benefits, including satisfied customers, management, and employees. Having transitioned to the ISO 9001:2015 from the 9001:2008 Artel Rubber Co are looking forward to passing on the benefits of their heightened quality standard to their customers. Because ISO 9001 specifies the requirements for an effective quality management system, Artel Rubber Co find that using the standard helps them: organise a QMS; create satisfied customers, management, and employees; and, continually improve. All of which means that their customers reap the rewards of their continued excellence. Changes introduced in the 2015 revision ensure that ISO 9001 continues to adapt to the changing environments in which Artel Rubber Co-operate. Some of the key updates in ISO 9001:2015 include the introduction of new terminology, restructuring some of the information, an emphasis on risk-based thinking to enhance the application of the process approach, improved applicability for services, and increased leadership requirements. Artel Rubber are excited to embrace these new improvements which mirror their ongoing dedication to quality in all areas of their business. Mr Simon Lavin, executive director said “It has been my experience, that the culture change associat ed with ISO implementation is multi-layered. The first and most obvious benefit is quality awareness, which does not fade away easily. Even those who offer strong resistance to change learn to respect and very much appreciate all the practical value in a good quality management system” More about Artel Rubber Company In business since 1990, Artel Rubber Company manufactures and fabricates silicone and rubber tubing and hose.
