From inception to the present day, quality has been one of three key pillars supporting the strategic aims at Anderson Acoustics: Great People, Driven by Quality and Technically Robust. This post gives an update on recent improvements to our internal Quality programme.
Our Quality Management System (QMS) already enables us to deliver a high-quality service to our clients, providing a standardised approach and traceability throughout the work we do. We feel passionate that we can best support and clearly present our QMS by achieving certification in ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management Standard.
Organisations use this voluntary standard to demonstrate an ability to consistently provide quality products and services that meet the expectations of customers and regulatory requirements.
As a conscious acoustics consultancy – and as you may have gathered from our strapline, Acoustics for a better future – we take sustainability very seriously and always consider environmental impact in all of our decision-making. At the same time as becoming accredited to ISO 9001, we have also agreed to commit to ISO 14001 – the Environmental Quality Management Standard.
This standard builds environmental management into the heart of our operations, including how we adhere to environmental regulations, improve efficiency and reduce the company’s overall environmental impact.
Very soon, all outgoing bids for tenders will be accompanied by a Letter of Intent to clients to demonstrate our commitment to gaining these certification. We are proud to make this outward statement of dedication to high quality processes and procedures and we welcome the opportunity to discuss our Quality system with clients as the project progresses.
Our journey so far as a business has given us confidence that we have the right tools and systems in place and we aim to have achieved full certification for both 9001 and 14001 by mid-2018.
Our entire team is dedicated to continuous improvement and providing the highest quality service to our clients, in the most sustainable way. We believe this certification will put Anderson Acoustics in a great position to continue to lead the field in achieving Acoustics for a better future.
