BSI, the national standards authority has recognised CP Electronics’ commitment to excellence with two awards, celebrating over 20 years at the forefront of quality in the industry.
The awards were given for holding ISO 9001 (Quality) for 20 consecutive years, and ISO 14001 (Environment) for 10 consecutive years. It’s believed this is the first time any business within the electronics sector has achieved such a milestone. The award ceremony took place on 13th June 2019 at the BSI head office in Milton Keyes and CP received the honours from BSI’s Maureen Smith (Chief Operating Officer) and Anne Scorey (Managing Director).
CP Electronics also holds the occupational health & safety management system certification (BS OHSAS 18001:2007), becoming the only lighting control manufacturer to hold all three of BSI’s major standards.
On winning the awards, Mo Mohanaranjan, Quality and Environmental Manager at CP Electronics, said “We’re delighted that our hard work has been recognised with the BSI standards for so many years. We are committed to excellence in the workplace every day, and winning these awards is a testament to that. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at CP for their hard work and support for past 20 years that has led us to this point.
When CP Electronics was awarded its first Quality certificate in May 1999, the standard was known as ISO:9001:1994. Since then, the standard has been upgraded throughout the years to the current ISO 9001:2015 system, and CP continues to maintain its high standards to meet the new criteria.
“Quality is part of our DNA,” said Mo Mohanaranjan. “Our commitment to passing BSI audits with flying colours gives confidence and reassurance to our customers and has helped drive our growth and success.”
Over the course of 20 years, CP Electronics has grown from a local start-up employing just 13 people, to a national business with over 170 employees and a strong portfolio of products and customers.
