IRVINE-based print company, Kestrel Press, has succeeded in having its ISO9001 accreditation renewed for a 12th successive year.

Says a spokesperson: “ISO9001 is by far the world’s most established quality framework, currently being used by 1,064,000 organisations in 178 countries worldwide, and sets the standard not only for quality management systems, but management systems in general.

“It helps all kinds of organizations to succeed through improved customer satisfaction, staff motivation and continuous improvement.

“Kestrel Press is the only printing company in Ayrshire to have achieved this accreditation.”

Kestrel Press managing director, Colin McCallum, commented: “Kestrel Press has been successfully providing printing, packaging and reprographic services since 1973.

“The key to our success is our commitment to service and our determination to keep our lead in technological advancement.

“Our skills in handling high levels of diversity and complexity are built on experience of making a positive and creative contribution to our many clients’ varying requirements.

“Our service reaches almost every sector – pharmaceuticals, financial services, hotels, retail, engineering, construction, transport, education and the public services. Our products are even more diverse, and our quality is consistently excellent.”
