Quality & Environmental Policies

As highlighted in our Accreditation section, JHL currently hold certification for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and IATF 16949

We operate many systems and procedures enabling us to achieve such high standards.

Our facilities include an extensive range of quality audit tools such as real time X ray facilities, spectrographic analysis and full CNC metrology utilising 3 axis CMM equipment.

It should come as no surprise therefore to learn that we have continued to receive commendation for our premium quality products and support systems from numerous industry leaders in the Automotive, Gas, Healthcare, Medical & White Goods sectors.

We also recognise our responsibilities and remain committed to reducing our impact upon the environment. We take this responsibility very seriously and are working towards improved levels of environmental sustainability through many initiatives.

These initiatives include waste reduction, material recycling and green power generation – all aimed at reducing our overall carbon footprint.
