Tufcot is happy to be celebrating World Quality Day 2019 this November.

What is World Quality Day?

World Quality Day is celebrated worldwide every November to increase worldwide awareness of organisational growth, prosperity and added quality.

This is a perfect opportunity for businesses worldwide to celebrate their success and dedication to quality. It is also an opportunity for businesses to champion the contributions made by their various staff members towards quality in their business spreading the ‘importance of quality’ message.

The Chartered Quality Institute defines the responsibilities of Quality professionals as being defined through five main areas;

  • Governance
  • Assurance
  • Improvement
  • Leadership
  • Context

World Quality Day 2019 – 100 Years of Quality

There is a different theme for World Quality Day each year and the theme this year is 100 years of Quality.

This year is the centenary of World Quality Day which was initiated after WW1 from a desire to improve the production of unreliable munitions.

With a passion for providing trusted, quality products and services, the original members established the Technical Inspection Association in 1919 leaving a legacy evident in the outstanding work of Quality professionals in all industries ever since.

Why Tufcot Celebrates World Quality Day

Quality is not simply a word here at Tufcot, it’s an attitude, an approach that sits at the centre of everything we do.

We strive to consistently work to a high standard of quality and assure our clients that we are constantly improving.

We like to think that Quality is in everything we do. Whether it’s from how we manage the company, how we interact with our customers or the material and parts we manufacture and supply worldwide.

We know there is always room for improvement so if we don’t meet expectations at any of those stages, we want to know immediately so we can address issues and adopt lessons learnt.

We are proud that our Quality Management System is certified as fully ISO 9001:2015 compliant.

ISO 9001 certification means that we address and strive for operational excellence, consistency and efficiency throughout.

We use repeatable refined processes for increased productivity and improved customer retention. This leads to customer satisfaction due to an ability to constantly monitor and measure our performance and outcomes.
