Custom Consoles sets the standard with ISO 9001 quality management certification

Friday, December 7th, 2012


Custom Consoles Ltd, a world leader in the design and production of high-quality technical furniture, announces that it has received ISO 9001 quality management certification.

Founded in 1996, the company is a UK-based independent manufacturer of project-specific and modular broadcast, process-control and security furniture.

“We have operated to very precise manufacturing and documentation standards from the company’s inception right through to the present day,” states Custom Consoles’ Managing Director Neil Reed. “That included early investment in 3D computer-aided design and computer-controlled cutting machinery which forms a key resource at our 1,200 square metre production facility. This provides the dual benefits of precise quality control and prompt delivery times, typically 21 days from receipt of order.”

“ISO 9001 certification is particularly appreciated by public sector organisations and major corporations as a credible quality mark,” adds Paul Robinson of Hitchin based business management consultancy Blackmores. “Very few changes were needed to Custom Consoles’ design, production or management practices. Certification was made by the British Standards Institution, confirming that the company conforms fully to the quality management principles on which the standard is based.”

The ISO 9000 family of standards is related to quality management systems. The standards are published by the International Organisation for Standardisation and available through various national standards bodies. ISO 9000 deals with the fundamentals of quality management systems, including the eight management principles on which the family of standards is based. ISO 9001 deals with the requirements that organisations wishing to meet the standard have to fulfill.

Over a million organisations worldwide are independently certified, making ISO 9001 one of the most widely used management tools in the world today.

From its headquarters in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, Custom Consoles caters for a global client base including broadcasters, production and post-production studios, governmental and corporate organisations in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australasia.

Custom Consoles Module-R product range allows customers and system integrators to create robust, efficient and attractive control-room desks from a selection of standard interlocking elements. The matching Media Wall monitor mounting system is available in a range of sizes to accommodate large or small arrays of flat-panel screens and ancillary equipment. A Custom Consoles speciality is height-adjustable furniture under manual or electrically powered control. The company also designs and manufacturers furniture to specific customer requirements.
