More good news. Following on from our recent positive recertification of our ISO9001 and TS16949 accreditations, GE Starr has done it again by passing its ISO14001 audit with flying colours.

Our auditor commended us in his report:

“The Company owners and senior management are to be commended for their ethos and pragmatic approach in managing the business, and demonstrating continued commitment towards maintaining the system and environmental compliance, whilst developing and supplying products in line with customer requirements, without losing sight of the need for environmental improvement. Continuous improvement in all aspects of the operation has been significant and this is an ongoing benefit to the business.”

GE Starr manufactures bespoke mild steel pressings, stainless steel pressings, welded assemblies and riveted assemblies. We use a range of materials from 1mm to 5mm so material utilisation and waste reduction is a major consideration when quoting new work.

We will continue to monitor our existing impacts and aspects during the coming year and will now additionally monitor material savings through continuous improvement acitivies.

Following our recent TS16949 (automotive) and ISO9001 (general quality) combined annual quality audit, we are delighted to achieve yet another positive inspection with no demerits or recommendations.

Our auditor in his summary says:

“This was GE Starr’s recertification audit. Over the last audit cycle, the company have consistently demonstrated good controls over their quality management system. Performance against internal KPI’s and customer metrics is excellent. No conformities were identified this audit. This is a clear reflection on how well processes are managed.”

Over the last 12 months we have continued to improve our systems with a view to extending them to encompass ISO18001 (Health and Safety) in the coming year. Our auditor particularly noted our achievements in updating our alert system, training, production control system and our technical knowledge which we use to support our customers. We are extremely pleased to have such a positive outcome once again.

GE Starr always welcomes feedback and as a supplier to the automotive sector we often receive quality performance ratings from our customers.

We have recently been notified by one of our biggest customers that GE Starr ranks as their number 1 supplier for 2013 in terms of quality with a rating of 5 PPM over 12 months within a limit of 450 PPM. Our customer praises us by saying "Please pass on our thanks and gratitude to your workforce for all their hard work and support in achieving this position during 2013 and here's to an even more successful 2014."

GE Starr has invested in an automotive information service with an industry wide online community for the management of key business information.

Following a comprehensive supplier registration and pre-qualification phase, GE Starr has now been linked to automotive OEM's and suppliers. This online portal will increase the visibility of GE Starr by providing accurate and up to date information on the key criteria that the participating OEM's deem critical in the sourcing process.

GE Starr has won a resource package for metal pressings with a new customer. We have taken delivery of the first suite of tools which has been fitted to suit our power presses. The resource package includes a varied assortment of pressings including a drawn cup from 1mm mild steel and a cropped and formed clamp from 7mm rolled bar.

The customer praised us for getting metal pressings to them at short notice when their existing supplier decided to give back the work. Our purchasing and production departments pulled out all the stops to help the customer and provide a seamless continuation of supply.
