A Customer Story - Farécla

Farécla Products Limited is a world-class manufacturer & supplier of surface finishing solutions and its products are sold in more than 120 countries.

Farécla has been a client of ours for around 13 years – we provide their certification to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004.
Recently, I put a few questions to their ESHQ Manager, Ermenegildo Del Latte.

 

Why did you decide to introduce a Quality/Environmental Management System?
In recent years, more and more of our larger customers (UK and international) have asked for proof of our accreditations.
Throughout Europe the 14001 seems to be a must-have requirement.

Did gaining certification bring any benefits to Farécla?
My main feedback for our certification to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 is that it has given a company like Farécla product a solid system from start to finish.
In addition, throughout the years of auditing and recertification with Independent European Certification, we have made many improvements and created almost a partnership.  

Were there unexpected side effects (whether negative or positive)?
Well, to top this all up last year we had a visit from the Environmental Agency. I had never been so happy to have a 14001 accreditation! Thanks to the internal legal compliance audit ALL the required paperwork was in place and risks to the environment were adequately assessed with countermeasures in place.
