Once again we are pleased to announce that we have passed our external audits for quality and environmental standards with flying colours.

Following our June TS16949 (automotive) and ISO9001 (general) combined audit our quality auditor reported:

We are pleased to announce that the new roofing covering our assembly and toolroom areas has now been completed and although the scaffolding is still up we are up and running and already seeing the benefits.

We have invested in having a roofing refit on our 1984 extension which houses our assembly, toolroom and spotwelding areas.  We chose to completely re-roof the area instead of overcladding, this will give us 10” of insulation and will make the working space more comfortable for our workforce in both the summer and winter months. We have also invested in new cladding and guttering  as well as new internal rubber doors and signage.

GE Starr has now traded for 60 years. The original “Starr Engineering Co.” was established by the late Graham Starr specialising in press tooling manufacture and general engineering. The company has developed and grown over the last 60 years, changing to GE Starr Ltd in 1975.  The company is still owned by the Starr family and currently manufactures metal pressings and assemblies for various industries.

 

GE Starr has successfully completed the next phase of our customer’s latest venture – prototype hood hinges. A series of prototypes such as door hinges, bonnet catches and seat belt loops have already been manufactured.

The latest stage of the project has been to manufacture prototype hood hinges. These have been manufactured using machined from solid parts in aluminium then assembled with bushing systems and accessories already used by us in some of our other current products.

We are currently undergoing a process of development for the next stage of the venture which are decklid hinge prototypes.

 

 

GE Starr manufactures niche volume, hand built assemblies for the Automotive industry. Since 2013 we have been working on a new model as the nominated supplier for hinge and closure products. We have spent many months working closely with our customer on the design concepts, through development and feasibility to production intent.

We are currently in the process of supplying parts for the initial build with production starting in the 2nd quarter of 2015. The first products we have at this stage are:

These will be followed by bonnet hinges and decklid hinges shortly.

This is an exciting phase for the company as this range of products represent manufacturing work for the next 4-6 years. This will give stability to GE Starr, our employees and our suppliers, many of which are local companies.

Following on from this success GE Starr is  involved with our customer's next project which is currently at the embryonic stage in its concept.
