QUALITY

Moulding plastic products of the highest quality is what Rutland Plastics is known for. Quality assurance, control and monitoring procedures are built in to every aspect of our work. This includes the receipt of raw materials, sales service, design, moulding, finishing, final inspection, delivery and administration.

Our quality control team will talk to you and understand your particular quality requirements to ensure their implementation.

ASSURANCE OF QUALITY

Our QA department contains an extensive range of fully calibrated measuring equipment including a Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and an Optical Measuring Machine, for precise measuring of production parts where tight tolerances are called for.

Our ERP system covers our entire operation providing full traceability. This not only ensures consistency of all your injection moulding requirements but also means we can keep track of the progress of your order through all the stages of production. In the unlikely event you should experience any problems with your plastic products or components we can check back to see when it was moulded, on which machine, which batch of material was used and even the names of the people who worked on the order!

RUTLAND PLASTICS AWARDED ISO13485

Rutland Plastics has attained the medical standard ISO13485. Building on the ISO9001 accreditation that the company already has, it now has additional approval for the manufacture of non-sterile injection and flow moulded thermoplastic components for medical devices and the machining, finishing and sub-assembly of mouldings to customers’ requirement. Of particular importance in this standard are risk management and maintaining effective processes specific to the safe manufacture of medical devices.

Rutland Plastics already manufactures a number of products for the medical sector and achieving this standard demonstrates proven business credentials in this sector through independent verification. This is the culmination of many months of hard work led by QC Inspector Lee Hatton.

This is a growing market for plastic mouldings due to the high usage of disposables and is a market Rutland Plastics would like to develop further. This standard not only demonstrates Rutland Plastic’s commitment but also the level of service it can provide due its our focus on maintaining a clean mouldshop backed up by effective quality assurance processes.

RUTLAND PLASTICS ACHIEVE ISO14001

Rutland Plastics has always strived to be green and now has the certificate to prove it. It has attained the environmental management standard ISO14001.

ISO14001 is an internationally recognised standard on environmental management. It covers all areas of an organisation and its impact on the environment; in short the aim is to achieve cleaner production. A company should not only comply with current environmental regulations and standards but also make a commitment to continuous improvement. This can include recycling, minimising waste and conserving energy. Periodic comprehensive audits are carried out to ensure continued compliance and meeting of specified goals.
