Product quality & service expertise
We consistently deliver against exacting specifications and performance requirements.
At Element Six, we raise performance levels in everything we do
Our relentless commitment to innovation drives the business forward and our dedication to quality and customer service is a vital component for delivery of our Strategic Vision.
Product quality underpins our innovation
Quality is never an afterthought at Element Six – it is embedded in the spirit of the organisation and in its processes. Quality is something we design in throughout our production development cycle.
Our processes ensure the highest standards
We employ a company-wide production system and constantly work towards our philosophy of ‘zero defects’ for our customers.
- We enforce rigorous process controls and inspection requirements throughout production processes.
- We understand the exacting specifications and performance requirements and deliver against them.
- We employ statistical process controls to check critical characteristics of products throughout production.
- We customise the checking process for every product.
Everyone has a hand in quality control
All our plants are accredited as operating in accordance with globally recognised Quality Management Systems, and every division in the company has a quality liaison team. At local level, this means quality control inspectors, engineers and managers on all our sites.
To improve our products we act like customers
We’ve developed an approach to quality that means we evaluate all our products in the same way our customers do. We invest in improved manufacturing processes, as in the new Micron area at our Shannon site in Ireland. Another recent development in quality evaluation has been the establishment of the company’s Advanced Manufacturing Centre where we work in close technical partnership with our customers.
We tailor our customer service to meet individual needs
At Element Six, we are passionate about delivering on our promises – we do what we say we're going to do – and maximising on-time delivery.
- We own and operate our vertically integrated supply chain.
- We collaborate with our customers on their product’s development.
Our team understand products as well as customer service
The people who interact with our customers bring decades of product experience and technical expertise to the table. For example, our Ascot site provides unrivalled CVD (chemical vapour deposition) technical capability, and our Diamond Research Laboratory in Springs, South Africa, works directly with our oil & gas customers to develop ground-breaking products in-house.
It is business as usual with Element Six’s continuity capability
Our investment in a global production and service footprint ensures business continuity for our customers. This high level of capability ensures that we are fully prepared and able to minimise the impact from any unplanned operational interruptions.
