Local engineering company Telestack have achieved another milestone in its drive for operational excellence, having recently been awarded UKAS accreditation covering the following recognised global standards; ISO 14001 (Environmental Management), OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety Management), in addition to our existing accreditation to ISO 9001 (Quality Management).
Telestack adopted the approach of creating a fully Integrated Management System (IMS), which links together Quality, Safety, and Environmental management systems which when coupled with our Lean Manufacturing Strategy creates a powerful tool for accelerating continual improvement within our entire value chain, and creating additional growth opportunities within the organisation. The Telestack Integrated Management System (IMS) ensures that anything which has an effect on overall business performance is monitored, actioned and improved as a natural part of our business culture.
This much coveted award has recognised the stringent internal management practices that Telestack operate within to ensure that the organisation, processes, people and culture are aligned with the company’s purpose and mission.
Adrian McCutcheon, Managing Director states, “This is an important part in the overall business strategy of ensuring quality at every point from the people that we employ, the suppliers that we use, procedures that govern us and products that we sell throughout the world. Our internal processes are designed with continuous improvement in mind and we are relentless in our commitment to quality, safety of our people and to innovation.”
As specialists in the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of mobile bulk material handling systems, Telestack have installed over a thousand plants across six continents and are a supplier of choice to many international blue chip companies such as Anglo American, Cemex, Rio Tinto as well as many major ports across the world. They believe that this commitment to delivering quality products is absolutely paramount to the way they work with clients globally.
Malachy Gribben, Commercial Director continues, “This accreditation will greatly support us as we continue to grow our market share across the globe. We have experienced significant growth over the last number of years and we contribute much of our success to our continual investment in our people, in developing innovative and quality products and our success in breaking into new markets. We are winning multi mullion pound contracts across the world among major blue chip clients and we are confident of a bright and strong future. As we all know, the world has gone through economic turmoil in recent years, yet Telestack have continued to grow at a rapid rate. This is a solid indicator that Telestack should be an employer of choice to local people as we envisage our rapid growth to continue as we are on target to double in size over the next five years.”
