Kemtron Gains Accreditation to International Environmental and Occupational Health Standards

Kemtron, the British manufacturer of EMC shielding and environmental sealing solutions, has achieved accreditation through the British Standards Institute (BSI) to ISO 14001, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems, and OHSAS 18001, the standard for Occupational Health and Safety.

The OHSAS specification sets out the requirements for an occupational health and safety management system, to enable an organisation to control its OH&S risks and improve its performance. ISO 14001 specifies a process for controlling and improving a company’s environmental performance.

Managing Director David Wall said, “We are delighted to have achieved accreditation to these internationally-recognised management systems. Quality has been a priority for Kemtron since 1988 when we achieved accreditation to BS5750 the predecessor to ISO9001. We document all of our processes and operate a policy of continuous improvement for customers, employees and the environment. Accreditation to these two demanding standards takes our commitment to a new level and reinforces our position as a world-class supplier.”

“Our customers can feel confident that Kemtron solutions, which are designed and manufactured in Britain, meet requirements for quality, sustainability and responsibility in the workplace,” he added. “And it’s a tribute to our employees who have worked so hard to reach and maintain the demanding standards.”

Kemtron, an ISO 9001 accredited organisation, developed and implemented the integrated management system in house over a 12 month period, building on measures and quality management processes already in place. The prestigious award came after an in-depth assessment by BSI Inspectors in which they examined every aspect of Kemtron’ s policy and systems for environmental and occupational health and safety issues.

Electronica 2010 Provides A Showcase For Kemtron’s Continuing International Growth

Electronica 2010, acknowledged as the world’s leading trade fair for electronic components and solutions, provided a high-quality international showcase for Kemtron, the British manufacturer of EMC shielding and environmental sealing solutions.

The event, held in Munich in November 2010, attracted over 72,000 visitors from 76 countries and gave Kemtron the opportunity to meet key decision makers as part of its international growth strategy. “We already export to 35 countries,” said Managing Director David Wall. “Electronica put our name in front of a high-calibre global audience and has opened up important new business opportunities.” “Our European business is already significant,” he added. “This is reflected in our decision to open a French office later this year. However, the market is now global so we find it important to build and maintain contact with an international audience at events like Electronica.”

Kemtron continues its focus on exports in March 2011, exhibiting at EMV 2011 in Stuttgart. “This is our third/fourth appearance at this exhibition,” said David Wall. “It represents a valuable platform for maintaining contact with the international EMC community.”
