For the UK’s leading lighting controls manufacturer, CP Electronics, the 13th of May marks an important celebratory moment. It will be the day of commemorating 20 years of excellence in quality, as the company celebrates the 20th anniversary of its British Standard Quality Management System certificate. This milestone reflects the companies’ excellent commitment to quality.
It is believed that CP Electronics is one of the first manufacturers in the electrical industry in the UK to hold the quality standards ISO:9001 for 20 years. The company is in fact, the only manufacturer in lighting control to have all three of the BSI major standards; which includes environmental management system certification (ISO:14001:2015) and the occupational health & safety management system certification (BS OHSAS 18001:2007).
The BSI is the world's first national standards body, responsibly for issuing a variety of certification including quality management and sustainability. Despite being a British standard, it is an internationally recognised and renowned standard respected by suppliers across the globe. The ISO 9001 is the world’s most popular management system standard; instrumental in assuring customers that the awarded company meets all of the quality standards.
When this standard was first obtained it was known as 1SO:9001:1994. When it was upgraded to ISO:9001:2015, CP Electronics were able to meet all the new criteria required to attain the latest certification for quality management.
CP Electronics first obtained its Quality Standard certificate in May 1999, with just 13 employees, 25 products and a building measuring 3000 sq. ft. Over 175 employees later, a 35,000 sq. ft building and a portfolio of dozens of product ranges, CP Electronics has managed to exceed its high-quality standards year-on-year. Despite the tremendous growth, the company has successfully made quality a vital part of its culture and DNA.
Mo Mohanaranjan, Quality and Environmental Manager at CP Electronics, who was presented with a long-service award by the BSI in February 2018, said “Quality is one of the most important values held at CP Electronics, together with environmental management and occupational health and safety. If it wasn’t for the standards, the hard work of our staff and the continuous support from our loyal customers, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Because of our quality standards our customers have a lot of confidence in us.”
“We continue to work hard to ensure we are meeting the international standard requirement. This has only gone to strengthen CP’s diligence in providing quality products and services for its customers and passing BSI audits with flying colours”.
The BSI will be hosting a presentation evening on the 13th of June, where CP’s incredible achievement will be awarded.
