Watts Tyre Group, the UK based industrial tyre and wheel producer have again passed the ongoing assessment for ISO 14001:2004 and its Environmental Management system.
Chief Executive Jean-Paul Mindermann commented "Our quality accreditations are very important to us as a business and we are delighted that we continue to keep our standards high. As a key supplier to the world’s leading materials handling manufacturers it is vital for us to ensure that the quality of our products and processes is world class.
Quality sits at the heart of what we do. We have held ISO 9001 Quality Management in its various forms since 1990 and have held ISO 14001: 2004 Environmental Management Systems since 2006. In 2009 the Lydney, UK based activities of Interfit were included in the scope of both our ISO9001:2008 and ISO1400:2004 certification. Our customers demand quality of product and service and it remains clear to us that in order to meet that expectation quality can’t be something left to chance."
The ISO 14001 assessment rounds off an impressive 12 months for Watts Tyre Group that has also seen the business attain the new ISO 9001:2008 standard and again receive Approved Supplier status from Toyota Industrial Equipment SA.
