Commitment to quality is at the heart of all we do

S&S Plastics’ commitment to quality is demonstrated by every member of our team having an NVQ in quality and our accreditation to ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 13485.

It’s not just us. Every supplier we partner with is subjected to strict audits. Our quality department measures many dimensions including ‘on time in full’ (OTIF) deliveries.

Quality accreditation

Each supplier is audited – in the spirit of partnership – to ensure service remains within set parameters. Critical suppliers receive a visit from our quality department to carry out the necessary on-site checks.

Open door policy – you are invited to drop in, any time, to check on your tooling or just for a coffee and a chat. We like to do business informally but professionally.

Scope of continual quality planning and audits: monitoring and controlling suppliers, goods inwards, stock accuracy, on-time delivery, in-process manufacture and final audits.

We welcome you to audit us whether you’re a customer or a prospect.

Absolute commercial confidence is critical in the fiercely competitive field of product design. That’s why, rigorous and meaningful supply chain audits are essential.

All S&S Plastics’ work is covered by a strictly-complied with NDA/contract but it’s understandable some of our OEM (original equipment manufacturers) customers want their tooling manufactured in the UK even when there are clear economies suggesting we should use our Chinese supply chain.

You can’t put a price on manufacturing in a business environment where IP (intellectual property) is respected and enforced.
