 Quality Policy

 It is the policy of BAS Castings to maintain the highest level of quality, both product and service, during the production of all products required by our customers.

We are dedicated to on-going, continuous improvements of the Quality Management System throughout all levels and functions of the business as required by ISO 9001: 2008. This commitment is detailed within our Quality Management System and evidenced by scheduled internal and external audits, and by review of these audits at the Management Review meetings.

Alterations and additions to the Quality Objectives may be required as a result of these audits and also in response to client, quality or legislative changes.

It is the responsibility of every employee within BAS Castings to perform their tasks correctly, to ensure that all products have been produced or processed in accordance with established procedures, and it is the responsibility of BAS Castings to train and empower employees to attain these goals and to provide the necessary resources to implement this policy.

The ultimate responsibility rests with the Managing Director through the Quality Manager, but quality will only be maintained in all areas of the business by the application of the Quality Management System and the process of continual review and improvement.
