Saguenay Foundry’s Quality Control Policy
Saguenay Foundry’s commitment to quality ensures our clients that the products they receive meet their technical requirements and are delivered on time and at competitive prices. To insure the satisfaction of our clients, we continuously try to improve our quality management process. To do so, we rely on the involvement of our employees and the know-how of a highly motivated team.
The pursuit of the objectives of our quality policy underlies all our actions:
Choice of raw materials
All of our suppliers are submitted to periodical control to insure they comply with the best standards of the industry.
Prototyping and testing
We always build prototypes to validate the design of a new or modified pattern to get the part certified and to verify compliance with the specifications and tolerances provided by the customer. We perform regular testing of our products through destructive and non-destructive tests to ensure the highest quality standard.
Effective information sharing process
To insure the repeatability of our clients’ orders, each part cast at Saguenay Foundry has its own, detailed computerized data sheet containing all the information required for its manufacture. Its availability on many stations in our production facilities ensure all stakeholders involved in the casting process are easily able consult it.
The efficiency of this policy is regularly measured through audits performed by our clients and by external firms, as required for ISO certification. This reinforces our determination to maintain a strategy of intervention oriented towards the continuous improvement of our processes.
