Global electro-chemicals manufacturer Electrolube, part of the H K Wentworth Group, has received quality management approval for its rapidly expanding operation in Bangalore. Electrolube India has received one of the world’s most recognized standards, the ISO 9001-2015. This standard is based upon verification of a number of quality management principles demonstrated by an organization. ISO 9001-2015 requires a strong customer focus and a culture of continual improvement.
Since Electrolube first established a local presence in India five years ago and opened a-state-of-the-art factory in Bangalore last year, the brand sustains a strong position in the market. Electrolube has experienced substantial growth, particularly from leading Indian OEMs who now favour the products and use them extensively throughout many local sectors including industrial, LED and consumer electronics manufacturing.
In line with the Indian Government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative to encourage and promote local manufacturing infrastructures across the country, Electrolube India’s growth has been accelerated by the clear local supply benefits and straightforward import process on material, which prevents delays for customers.
Electrolube Managing Director Ron Jakeman said, “We are delighted that our Indian operation has received this well recognised accreditation for Quality Management. In addition to our local technical support, strong manufacturing presence and great location, the ISO 9001-2015 approval is testament to our excellent team in India, headed up by Padmanabha Shaktivelu. The Indian market has enormous potential for growth with many opportunities for Electrolube’s speciality products. We actively seek to help customers find new solutions to old problems and ultimately plan to expand our manufacturing range and product mix at our Bangalore site."
The new accreditation joins Electrolube UK’s current ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001 standard credentials, enabling the company to inspire full confidence in the broad range of international manufacturing industries they serve.
