Top marks for Burnley manufacturing company

A Burnley manufacturing company has received top marks during a recent quality inspection.

Refrigeration specialist CoolKit underwent a vigorous two-day visit at their Farrington Place premises for a joint ISO9001 and ISO14001 inspection, scoring 100 per cent.

CoolKit combined the ISO 14001 standard with ISO 9001 quality management standards in 2016 and is one of the first companies to integrate the two standards.

Auditors reviewed all the policies and procedures CoolKit use to manufacture their products to ensure they are traceable, meet high quality standards, and conform to purchasing, supply, goods and document control.

Steve Wilkinson, Head of Operations at CoolKit, said: “It’s a real achievement to get 100 per cent and this audit shows that our processes are controlled and monitored.

“At CoolKit we have a proactive approach and have integrated the requirements into our business model – rather than just having a paper-based exercise.”

The ISO 14001 standard has been held by CoolKit since 2011 after the company set itself demanding recycling targets – including reducing waste, reusing materials and recycling waste.

Steve added: “The joint audit results stress the quality procedures now in place and our aim of getting it right first time to ensure customer satisfaction and return business.

“We try to reuse waste materials and encourage staff to suggest different uses for it. Everything removed from the van – including plastics, aluminium and wiring is recycled, or reused wherever possible. And, at each checkpoint, the vehicles are inspected to ensure CoolKit’s high expectations are met when it comes to build quality.”

The flawless inspection comes just a year after the growing company expanded into new manufacturing facilities. The company has also invested heavily in new machinery including a new CNC machinery for faster and more accurate insulated lining kit production and laser scanner to minimise material wastage.

Steve added: “A lot of what we do is best practice and we can see the results. We have kept it simple and we are reaping the rewards by taking a proactive approach.”
