Hone-All Precision and its customers are seeing quantifiable benefits to the Leighton Buzzard-based sub-contract manufacturers’ policy of continuous improvement. In growing its customer base across sectors such as aerospace, oil & gas, hydraulics, automotive and motorsport, Hone-All has faced up to the challenges this places on its internal systems and processes.
Already well-versed in high quality management procedures due to the approvals and accreditations it has gained over the years, including the BS EN ISO 9001:2008/BS EN 9100:2009 aerospace quality standard and SC21 at Bronze level, Hone-All is also an advocate of continuous development of not only its processes, but also its people.
This attitude of constantly looking forward has seen the business change from being seen purely as a specialist in deep hole boring and honing, to developing a reputation as a one-stop-shop with a reputation for producing high quality machined components.
"Continually improving skills and processes is a major challenge, but it is one that we recognise has to be met in order to remain competitive and of interest to customers who have a selection of suppliers to choose from,” says Hone-All Precision Director, Andrea Rodney.
Hone-All fine tunes to deliver its promises
