Axion Polymers successfully renews ISO 9001 certification

  • 8 Oct 2019

Axion Polymers has successfully renewed its ISO management system certification at its two Manchester plastics recycling sites and gained a new ISO18001 Health and Safety standard for the Salford facility.

Following an audit conducted by LRQA, Axion Polymers has been recertified for its ISO 9001 quality management systems at its Salford and Trafford Park sites.

Based on seven quality principles, ISO 9001 certification covers all aspects of the plants’ operations, from manufacture to supply and customer service.

At Axion’s two processing sites, plastics recovered from end-of-life vehicles (auto shredder waste) and waste electrical goods are refined into high-quality engineering polymers that match virgin material quality.

The bespoke recycled polymers can be tailored to suit clients’ specifications for use in a wide range of new products.

Axion’s Commercial Operations Manager Laura Smith comments: “We’re proud to have achieved the renewal of our Lloyds Register ISO 9001 quality standards accreditation and this is testimony to the rigorous quality management procedures we have in place. Our customers can be assured that all Axpoly(r) and Axplas(r) products are manufactured according to the highest quality standards. Quality runs through everything we do.”

While the Trafford Park site has been recertified for OHSAS 18001, the Health and Safety management systems standard, it’s the first time that Salford facility has achieved this certification. OHSAS 18001 demonstrates strict compliance with Health and Safety procedures.

Praising the team’s efforts, Axion’s General Manager Judith Clayman says: “I am delighted that the whole team’s hard work has been rewarded with the certification. It demonstrates that robust implementation of policies, procedures and controls is in place to achieve excellent working conditions and workplace health and safety across the whole business. We will now be focussing our efforts on achieving ISO 45001, the new enhanced Health and Safety standard.”

Judith adds that Axion’s next step is to work towards achieving the environmental management standard ISO 14001 for both sites.
