The backbone to our continued success – ISO 9001:2008

On Monday 21st December, Bex Design was visited for our annual ISO 9001:2008 audit and we are pleased to report that we passed with no major or minor non-conformances

Quality Manager, Mel Conway oversaw the visit and said, “ISO (Internal Organisation for Standardisation) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards and is a nationally recognised certification that is awarded after a company has been found to be operating in accordance with the QA procedures set out in the ISO manual. At Bex Design we strongly believe that continuing to achieve and work to the standards demanded by ISO 9001:2008 is the backbone to our continued success.”

Our audit was once again overseen by James Daniels from Quality Certification Systems International Ltd. James was on-site for a full day auditing our Quality Management System which included reviewing our management reviews, internal quality audits, calibration and training as well as pre-production and production procedures. In his report James states that; “The company maintains an excellent quality management system which is internally and externally beneficial. It has had its system in place for many years and the various areas of the system continue to improve. The company’s internal process is excellent and well controlled by Mel.”

He continues “This annual assessment was conducted to ensure the company is working to its documented system in an effective manner and this was confirmed via the review of its system and randomly selected records. It was noted that substantial investment had been made in the new extension increasing the floor area of the factory by approx. 33%.

The employees interviewed during the audit were very positive in answering my questions and proved their competence and knowledge of the company’s quality management system. The Quality Management system is very well detailed and controlled.” The report confirms that, “The management system operated by Bex Design and Print Ltd continues to remain effective and gives no cause for concern and maintains the ongoing validity of QCSI Ltd certificate number: C728SW.”

Managing Director, Ian Board added, “Our continued ISO 9001:2008 accreditation can be directly attributed to our dedication to providing customers with a quality product. By adhering to the guidelines set out in our QMS, every item that we manufacture is produced to the highest standard. From receipt of order through to the manufacturing process itself, our customers can rely on us to deliver a high quality product and service every time.”
