Quality is a given in the nowadays rational business environment and market specific quality systems like TS16949 (automotive), AS9001(aerospace) , ISO9001:2015(industry), API-Q1 or ISO/TS/29001 (Oil&Gas) or ICH-Q10 for pharma are now widely accepted quality control/management systems. Therefore to meet customer expectations a QMS (Quality management system) is not something which is “nice to have” however a necessity in the modern business world
Within the Alcomex group we have the philosophy of “first time right first time quality” and together with the end-users we discuss how we can meet the customers’ expectations, secure the supply chain, implement the ability to go for JIT (just in Time) and reduce working capital by eliminating safety stock or unnecessary buffers. However in all case reliability is a key factor which stretches from product quality, manufacturability studies (PFMEA: product or process failure mode effect analyses) to controlling administrative procedures.
Managing and controlling all business processes, performing constant need/risk-analyses, understanding the specific requirements as stated in customer QMS systems (as operated in the different market places) and being able to speak the “same” language creates a basis and has become a crucial success factor in becoming a valid partner.
Over the last years Alcomex has invested heavily and will continue investing in building and maintaining a robust QMS in all our facilities throughout Europe and India, making sure we are set for the future and serve all the different markets we operate in.
