The Ins and Outs of our Quality Management System

Throughout our operational history, we have committed to providing fasteners which excel in quality and reliability. One of the ways we achieve this is by manufacturing all our products under our exceptional Quality Management System.

We have received ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for our Quality Management System, which is regularly audited by internationally-recognised third party organisations. Plus, alongside this, we have received quality approval from our many satisfied customers. 

Here are a few of the factors which contribute to our consistent procedures: 

Tested to Relevant Standards

Each of our parts are controlled to relevant British Standards (BS), ensuring that manufacturing tolerances and product dimension prerequisites are met. 

While we do supply fasteners to many British businesses, our capabilities don’t stop there. We also supply components to OEMs and distributors in 33 countries across the globe. Through this experience, we are also able to supply, and quality check our products against any regional conditions.

Optimised with Technology

We utilise a state-of-the-art optical sorting machine which uses camera technology and comparative testing to provide customers with the ultimate assurance. Our cameras check for potential contaminations along with any dimensional inaccuracies, to guarantee that each order is to the correct Property Class.

It doesn’t end there however, we also scrutinise each part in the search for any incorrect aesthetic elements such as misshapen heads or wrong colours. Once all parts have passed this checking procedure, they’re then fed directly into dispatch boxes ready for shipment, adding another level of protection against contamination.

Bespoke Requirements Included

Although our parts undergo testing against standard specifications, we’re also fully equipped in preparing custom orders. We have a successful history of helping businesses fulfil orders where special requirements are concerned, from specific heat treatments to plating requirements.

Our quality assessments cover these particular requests, meaning that customers can rest assured that no matter how bespoke the product is, it’s covered by our Quality Management System.

Our Commitment to Thoroughness

We undertake these stringent quality checks, to ultimately provide our customers with parts that are consistent and safe, reducing product waste and the need for repeat orders. Through our highly skilled workforce and investments in technology, these fulfilments are met and customer expectations are exceeded. 

Our reputation for quality is what has established us as outstanding suppliers, so if you’re on the search for a new fastener supplier, why not consider Clevtec?
