New start-up Huddersfield business, Austar UK Ltd have recently attainted their ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications with the help of Synergos Consultancy Ltd. Austar UK Ltd was set up in March 2020 as a subsidiary business unit of the Austar Group based in Hong Kong. As part of their growth strategy, they decided to enlist Synergos to help them to work towards their Quality Management System and Environmental Management System Certifications.
Julie Sheffield, UK operations support administrator says: “Setting up our new business at the height of the pandemic presented us with many new challenges, but we are proud to have set up in Huddersfield, our home town and are work-ing alongside our stakeholders in Hong Kong. As a business we are a technology based pharmaceutical engineering solution provider and have a deep understanding of industry regulations and processes. Having these two ISO certifications demonstrates to our cus-tomers that we are committed to delivering our products and services to a defined level of Quality whilst reducing the potential negative impact to the environment.”
Daryl Lister, business development manager at Austar Ltd adds: “We have had a great experience working with Synergos Consultancy working towards these certifications. They have been nothing but professional and have been with us every step of the way. We are now working with them towards the Safe Contractor accreditation.”
Synergos Consultancy managing director, Jenny Kilburn says: “I was impressed with the proactive nature that Julie, Daryl and the team at Austar UK have. They researched the value that ISO’s can give to an organisation and really believed in the importance of them. Very early on, they recognised the importance of health and safety in opening a new office and production facilities and so our Health and Safety Con-sultant, Steven Kilburn, conducted a full risk assessment for them. We also carried out a GDPR audit to ensure that they are compliant in the work they are doing.
With our help, they attained the two ISO certifications in a relatively short space of time and are already reaping some of the benefits as they grow and flourish. They were an ab-solute pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing our support.”
