At the very beginning of March GIIB Rubber has been revisited by SGS to conduct the planned audit of our manufacturing facilities. SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, which is recognised as the global benchmark for quality and integrity.
The objective of the audit is to verify compliance of operations and processes with a set of standards in a complex manner, including employee training and reporting. This reputable certification has been acquired by GIIB primarily to facilitate export to some of our African customers, whereby previously we had to obtain the SGS quality certificate case by case for each shipment, which imposed additional cost on the company and longer delivery process. In Lean Management system waiting time is just another waste for the organisation.
After completing this audit, we are proud to announce that we have successfully achieved full compliance with SGS standards and there have been zero non-conformity in our operations! This is possible when quality and compliance with standards has been made a habit and not something to be constantly reminded of.
