Kinder & Company , a leading independent supplier and manufacturer of reliable, innovative and efficient conveyor solutions has been awarded the prestigious AS and ISO standards certifications from Bureau Veritas.
Kinder & Co achieved the AS/NZS ISO 9001, AS/NZS 4801, OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS ISO 14001 certifications for the provision of tailored, engineered solutions for bulk materials handling and standard and customised conveyor hardware components, flow and anti-wear products, screening products, conveyor skirting and belt transfer products, belt cleaning systems, bucket elevator components, conveyor process equipment and associated safety and environment products for the generation, mining and mineral processing, metallurgic smelting and refining, salt, sugar and grain industries.
The family-owned company was able to achieve this recognition through the sustained efforts of founding director, Neil Kinder who mobilised his team of engineers and staff to work together to streamline, realign and refine the processes in the business to comply with the stringent and high standards demanded by AS and ISO certifications to take the business to the next level.
According to Neil, what started as a vision to take the award-winning company even further in the minds and eyes of customers and industry has become a reality, giving everyone in the business a boost of confidence that their processes and service offering to their customers is world class and recognised by one of the highest authorities.
From its humble beginnings, Kinder & Co has always emphasised the importance of integrity, knowledge, trust and family values in its operations. Kinder & Co has also been quick to embrace new technologies, having successfully ported their operations to SAP, giving the business and its engineers, unprecedented access to information, capabilities and capacity.
The next logical step in the journey pointed to recognition by an external quality and standards authority such as Bureau Veritas to give the company the accreditation it deserved that could pave the way to even greater trust, confidence and assurance from existing and new customers.
Kinder & Co’s competitive edge of experience, technical expertise, stock availability and turnaround time are now hardcoded in their AS and ISO accredited processes, giving their staff, customers and partners a high assurance of quality control and customer service levels.
