On the 14th November 2012 The Envelope Works Ltd was awarded the ISO9001:2008 Quality Standard after successfully completing a series of audits conducted by quality assurance specialists BM TRADA Certification Ltd.
The standard is the culmination of months of planning at The Envelope Works, led by Adrian Booth, the company’s Operations Manager, as he explains below:
“For several years now we’ve operated to our own comprehensive internal quality system, which has proved extremely effective in ensuring our production processes are of a consistently high quality, however it was always a goal of ours to ensure the framework was externally recognised through the ISO framework.
It was extremely pleasing to see how little we had adjust to attain the ISO standard and how seamless the process of certification has been.”
In every department of The Envelope Works, whether it is Warehousing and Logistics, Print, Design, Purchasing and Sales & Account Management, the company has endeavoured to systemise every action that plays a part in the production process, placing incredible amounts of focus on even the smallest aspects of the production cycle.
Mark Farrimond (M.D. of The Envelope Works) explained how the company’s ISO certification sends out an important message to Clients:
“Our Clients already understand the importance we place on the quality of our end product, yet to have that message externally ratified through the ISO standard gives everyone even more confidence to know that when they place an order with us, it will be managed in a way that will deliver a consistently high-quality end result.
The ISO9001:2008 certification sends out a clear message that The Envelope Works has an infrastructure that can cope with any volume or specification of envelope order.”
