ISO Standards at Crystran

As an ISO 9001 registered company, we are aiming to give customers, suppliers and any other visitors to our site an insight into our philosophy with regard to quality. We are a growing organisation that uses our QMS as the main driving force for the creation of profitable business by the continuous improvement in customer product and service. All of our staff have seen the benefits of the QMS over many years and are committed to its continual improvement.

Crystran's Quality System was approved to ISO 9001:2008 in 2009 by LRQA having taken over from our previous accreditation company. We have been approved altogether since 1994. We passed our certificate renewal audit in July 2015 which is now valid until July 2018.

We are now in the process of carrying out an internal Gap Analysis for the 2015 version.

An official Gap Analysis by LRQA is scheduled to take place in July.

We have committed to a date in October 2017 to replace our next surveillance audit with a re-certification audit to the new sandard.

We then intend to follow this with re-certification to ISO14001:2015 in early to mid 2018.

Our present certificate for this is valid until September 2018.


Company Wide Objectives:
1.To be market leader in our areas of speciality
2.To deliver on time every time
3.To be competitive on price
4.To deliver to specification
5.To build on our reputation for integrity
Measured Objective:

In order to ensure that we are continually improving our service we monitor factors including on-time deliveries, number of days delivered late,customer complaints, supplier performance and stock levels.
Below are the continuing results for our on time delivery performance.

On Time Deliveries
2014 had started with a low figure for our delivery performace. This is obviously not where we want to be and improvemrents were seen as the year progressed. We employed more staff in 2014, which helped us to improve and increase our on time deliveries and improve overall company performance.
2015 continued to show improved delivery times. We had taken on 3 more staff in 2014 including a new General Manager, who introduced several performance initiatives and techniques, which have continued to add to our success.
2016 continued to maintain good customer delivery performance but slightly reduced it from 2015 by only 0.23% due to a couple of lower months in June & July.
Lets hope 2017 continues and possibly even improves on our customer deliveries. A big ask but something we are always aiming to achieve.

We monitor how poor performance by our suppliers can adversely affect our on-time deliveries to our customers. We always try to work with our suppliers by involving them in our target setting and finding ways to reduce lead-times. Ultimately we may have to look for better suppliers. In some instances this is exactly what we have had to do.
In 2016 late deliveries to us from our suppliers accounted for 55.7% of all the late deliveries to our customers.
