This policy is reviewed yearly by Management in consultation with employees and the relevant Quality Representatives.



Quality Assurance

Custom Cartons service is based on best practice

Custom Cartons has documented quality procedures in place for the production of packaging and corrugated cartons. A quality assurance controller oversees adherence to these procedures.

The quality assurance controller has a responsibility to train operatives and measure performance. Checks are made against the specification, and results are monitored, samples taken and filed for cross reference—in accordance with Custom Cartons' quality procedures.

External audit conducted by BSI, completed successfully in November 2014 with no non conformance’s reported.

Custom Cartons sets its own KPIs for service based on best practice.
Standard KPIs include:

  •     On-time delivery
  •     Customer satisfaction surveys
  •     Measurement of cost downtime
  •     Production output versus plan
  •     Wastage versus plan
  •     Scheduled equipment maintenance and calibration
