GBK UK upgrades ISO certification:

GBK UK Limited has been reassessed to the new ISO9001:2015 standard. All companies currently approved to the older 2008 standard are required to be reassessed and uplifted to the new standard by August 2018.

GBK took the decision to accelerate the process and be reassessed during 2017. Engaging the assistance of our original consultants 'Hatton Parkinson Associates' the complete project has been scoped, designed and implemented in a very efficient & timely manner.

As well as increased focus on business processes and monitoring through the use of KPI's (Key Performance Indicators) the company also took the opportunity to change the QMS to a 'flow chart' based system which has allowed simplification with additional focus.

This important change within the business ensures we are well placed for further key announcements and improvement during 2018.
