KE Group regards quality as paramount in all that we do. Quality assurance and traceability are intrinsic to the way we work – ‘right first time – every time’. The KE Group has been registered by BSI to ISO 9001 since August 1993 – Registration Number FM213584. The quality management system has been audited and approved by our leading global clients. The Group has made considerable investment in a new bespoke integrated manufacturing system. All members of the KE Group have the collective responsibility to satisfy our high standards. Attention to detail, careful planning and use of the state of the art technology and systems ensure successful project management, where customer’s specifications are met without compromise. New product designs, including packaging, are developed and tested to ensure client satisfaction and confidence. Products are designed and manufactured to comply, where applicable, with all European and International regulatory standards, for example UL, NSF, CE,CB, EMC & RF approvals. Agreements with recognised International Test House means that type test requirements can be carried out to prove products are designed and meet regulatory, safety and customer required standards. The manufacturing and inspection controls throughout the manufacturing process ensure reliability, repeatability and interchangeability of product and components. The quality of Asian manufactured products and components is controlled by the UK QA Office, with our own local personnel completing robust inspection and testing approvals before release and despatch of every shipment. All products are made from high quality materials to strict supply specification, and comply with the requirements of the European Directive for the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), as well as being REACH compliant.
Load testing, dynamic, stability and tilt testing are all available onsite. Full electro-mechanical testing facilities are available at our factories to ensure compliance to electrical standards. Final inspection, packing and despatch are all coordinated onsite so our customers can be assured that products will arrive at their final destination in prime condition. Every product batch is QC tested and inspected to ensure the highest quality.
