Quality Procedures

Behind every great product is not only innovation and excellent quality materials but also excellent manufacturing and assembly. In order to ensure that we achieve excellence in all our activities we have implemented a formal Quality Management System, which ensures that:

  • Our customers’ needs are fully understood
  • Appropriate resources are provided in terms of facilities and relevant skills to fulfil customers’ needs
  • Quality objectives are set consistent with the overall policies of the company
  • The company is committed to a process of continual quality improvement
  • Progress towards the quality objectives are monitored
  • The Quality Management System, is regularly reviewed to take account of changing circumstances and customer requirements

Of course, we understand these words might offer only a little insight into the attention we give to every order, so we would love to extend to you the invitation to come and visit us and find out what we are all about. Just give us a call and we’ll arrange a time to suit you.

Health and Safety

At  Metador we understand that health and safety management is vital to the success and safety of our company and our employees. To ensure that our high standards of health and safety are always met, we enforce an effective policy. To guarantee that the policy is always up to date and reflects any developments and progression in our company, we continually measure, monitor and revise where necessary an annual plan to ensure that Health & Safety standards exceed the expected requirements. The management looks upon the promotion of Health & Safety measures as a mutual objective for themselves and their employees at all levels. All our operations are backed with method statements and risk assessments, and all our Health & Safety procedures are audited by external sources.
