Quickgrind Limited has been at the forefront of tool design and manufacture for almost fifty years, engineering is in our blood. We have an international reputation for solid carbide and high speed steel-cutting tools for the extrusion die, fabrication, die and mould, aerospace, automotive, medical and general engineering industries.
Our objective is to help increase our client’s productivity by optimising metal removal rates and tool life. We achieve this by ensuring application of the correct technology and by specifying the right tool for the job. Very often this involves producing tools which are specific for our client’s needs, at costs which are surprisingly little different to what would be paid for standard tooling.
This approach has become so successful that it has become known as ‘total solution engineering’ and has been expanded to include a range of compatible services which includes re manufacture and inventory control.
To this end we have opened our Technical Centre to assist our clients in developing optimum solutions for their tooling requirements.
To achieve the Company’s quality objectives the Managing Director has established, documented, implemented and maintains a Quality Management System that is designed to comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. The organisation is committed to both satisfying all applicable requirements and to continually improve its effectiveness.
The Quality Management System defines the strategic organisational objectives, policies and procedures associated with all quality-related activities carried out by the Company. In addition, the Company achieved AEO (Approved Economic Operator) status in 2017; this is certified by HMRC and is maintained as a key strategic requirement for the organisation.
The contents and aims of the Quality Management System have been communicated to all employees of the Company. In addition, everyone within the Company has been fully trained to carry out their allocated responsibilities. To ensure that the Quality Management System continually reflects the operations of the Company and is being operated correctly, it is regularly audited, reviewed, improved, and revised under the instruction of the Managing Director.
