TRECO Postal increases focus on quality
On Tuesday 6 February 2018, TRECO Postal obtained an ISO 9001:2015 certification. We are continuing to increase our focus on quality so we can further develop and improve our unique solutions. Our new certification is a crucial part of that focus.
“Our new ISO 9001:2015 certification guarantees our clients that TRECO Postal continues to live up to a high international standard,” says quality responsible Carsten Pedersen.
“With the new certification, the board is more involved with the quality processes. That means our quality management is better integrated with our other business activities. It obviously means more paperwork but that is a small price to pay for this seal of approval,” our quality responsible says.
Why we are upgrading to ISO 9001:2015
We are experiencing an increasing interest in our solutions. By focusing on our high quality, we strengthen one of the factors that makes us stand out.
”At the moment, we have a lot in our pipeline. We cannot let that affect our product quality because that is what separates us from our competitors. That is why we are upgrading our ISO 9001 certification to the latest version. It also shows our clients that our quality is a cornerstone for us,” says Per Therkildsen, Head of Manufacturing.
Since 2013, TRECO Postal has been certified by ISO 9001:2008. With the upgrade to ISO 9001:2015, we are now certified by the latest version which has an increased focus on strategy and risk management.
The upgrade took us a few months. The process normally takes about a month but we decided to slow it down. This allowed us to keep up with the order increase.
During the process, we received advice from Bureau Veritas who performed the final key verification.
“With counseling from Bureau Veritas, we created a new structure for our quality folder and a new quality manual,” says Carsten Pedersen.
Quality department is expanding
We have hired a quality assistant to ensure we both maintain and strengthen our level of quality.
“With our new quality assistant, we have the resources to comply with the high international standard that comes with an ISO 9001:2015 certification. The new appointment also means we can stay ahead of the established control functions at TRECO Postal,” says Per Therkildsen.
Our new quality assistant will perform sampling of all outgoing items and entry control of received items.
