Comments UK General Manager, Peter Evans, “KnitMesh Technologies places considerable importance on applying measurable standards and quality systems across all activities. It has, therefore, been a key focus to achieve this particular ISO standard in South Africa.
“In today’s global marketplace,” he continued, “organisations have higher expectations regarding quality. Accordingly, they anticipate consistent standards regardless of the country in which they choose to trade. By attaining ISO9001: 2000, we are able to visibly demonstrate that the procedures used in Port Elizabeth mirror those at our manufacturing facility in Britain.”
As a further demonstration of the quality of the services and products provided by its South African operation, KnitMesh Technologies has also received a supplier award from Tenneco, one of the leading exhaust manufacturers in South Africa.
