The Quality Management Team

The Quality Management team oversees the internal processes of the company, viewing the company as a web of interconnected processes and looking at those processes individually (their inputs, outputs, requirements and dependencies) with a view to improving them.

In order to have continual focus on improvement, our Quality Management team strives for incremental growth in the component processes which results in greater operation efficiency of the company overall and better customer service. This is done through quality planning, process analysis and review, internal audit, problem identification, correction, root cause analysis and prevention of recurrence.

The team also monitors compliance of the organisation against international standards and represents the company in external audits from certification bodies.

The Quality Management team interacts with all other teams within the company, monitoring performance, assisting with problem solving, advising on documentation, managing change, assessing suppliers, reporting against metrics or objectives, and defining policies or procedures.
