Trelleborg Sealing Solutions' quality system fullfills the requirements of international standards. Compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/TS 16949:2009 is regularly audited and confirmed by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance with a certificate.
The Quality Management at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions prefers durable construction and safe processes for the fulfilment of the customer's specifications. Regular process audits in the manufacturing facilities, which are conducted as if the customer would be conducting them, warrant that we achieve a high standard, reaching beyond the internal efforts of the audited installation.
Tests of our own are indispensable to prove the quality of delivered products, and for that purpose, we focus on the following topics:
The Quality Policies, the Declaration of Principles and the Quality Objectives of our enterprise were formulated by the management. Quality Policies and Quality Objectives serve as a guideline for all employees in carrying out all their work, and they contain the continuous process of improvement as an express constituent. Every employee is obliged to work for the benefit of both our enterprise and that of our customers in accordance with the guidelines of our Quality Management (QM) documentation.
A part of the quantifiable objectives constituting the basis for QM-Assessment is derived from the Quality Policies (in the QM-plans of the departments/divisions.) Data is regularly collected and submitted to the management board for evaluation. The analysis of the data is the starting point for permanent improvement, among other factors.
The Zero - Fault - Strategy is established in the Declaration of Principles.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions evaluates the quality of the processes by the attainment of the objectives. Objectives are set up annually and partial objectives and their attainment are checked regularly. The following characteristic figures are judged for this purpose:
"The greatest hazard for us is not, that we set our objectives too high and then we cannot achieve them, but that we set too small goals for ourselves, and we attain them."
