We Passed Our ISO 9001 Accreditation Audit

Tufcot have been given another clear bill of health by QMS, our external quality Auditors, to retain our ISO 9001:2015 accreditation.

This year’s annual audit was the seventh year in a row that Tufcot have passed the audit without any major or minor non-conformances being noted.

It is especially pleasing to achieve this given the circumstances of the last eighteen months. Tufcot have managed to continue production throughout the COVID pandemic. To achieve this, many procedures have had to be changed to accommodate different working practices.

At the same time many of the staff at Tufcot have had to cover roles, responsibilities and tasks new to them, often at very short notice.

To have done so, whilst still making sure all quality procedures are followed and full records retained, really is a testament to the commitment of all those involved at every stage of production.
