Our accreditation to this internationally recognised standard for the quality management of businesses illustrates Armco’s commitment to quality, customers and a willingness to work towards improving efficiency. It is concerned with the processes that create and control the products/services an organisation supplies. The accreditation requires that our company:

Establish quality objectives and show how they fit in to the operation of the business;
Produce a documented quality policy indicating how these requirements are satisfied;
Define our main process in a step by step flow charts;
