PennWhite ISO 9001 Certification Renewed.

Earlier this month Intertek Certification carried out an in depth re-certification audit of PennWhite’s ISO 9001 Management Systems.

During the 2-day audit Intertek reviewed PennWhite’s production procedures, checked the traceability of goods and the management of non-conformances, as well as talking to staff about sales order processing and purchasing. Afterwards Intertek were able to confirm that the policies and procedures in place at PennWhite remain in compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 and subsequently extended our certification for a further 3 years.

Technical Director Mark Humphries commented that "The principles and objectives of ISO 9001 are well entrenched within our business and even after all these years still help us to improve our products and service . ISO 9001 contunues to deliver benefits for both PennWhite and its customers, year after year."

 

PennWhite Launch Online Sample Service

Free of charge product samples can now be ordered via the “Products” page at www.pennwhite.co.uk. Customers can request 250ml samples of up to three products at one time and they will usually be dispatched in around 5 working days. Sending a request is simple, customers need only enter basic details directly on the Product page, there is no need to register or set up a password.

“Our objective is to make it easier for current and potential customers to obtain samples of PennWhite formulations for trial or examination,” explains Technical Director Mark Humphries, “Over 150 of our key products are listed on the website so most customers will be able to use the new service, but, if you need a sample of a product not featured on the website, or a larger sample of one that is, our sales team can arrange that over the phone, fax or email.”

PennWhite's New Storage & Dispatch Facility Is Open.

After a month of hard work by a team of contractors and our own personnel, the new PennWhite Warehouse & Dispatch Facility opened for business on 2nd February. Over 800 additional pallet spaces, automated filling equipment and additional decanting stations will help the business to serve its growing customer base over the coming years.

Since moving to the Midpoint 18 Business Park less than five years ago, the business has doubled in size, both in terms of turnover and square meters. Managing Director John Whitehead believes that "Our growth has been built on the faith and trust shown in PennWhite by our customers. Our investment in this new facility represents our commitment to maintaining and continually improving our service levels in response to their needs and expectations."

PennWhite Goes To China

Technical Director Mark Humphries and Production Manager Stephen Whitehead are currently in China helping to commission a specialist manufacturing facility that will produce PennWhite printing emulsions under licence.

The new partnership with Chinese company ABC Allied will help PennWhite’s printing products to establish a presence in growing "local" markets, many of which have traditionally been difficult for western companies to service. PennWhite products manufactured in China will only be sold in the Far East, PennWhite's UK manufacturing plant will continue to manufacture products for sale in Europe and the West.

Stephen has already been impressed by the new Chinese facility, “By designing the production unit from the ground up we’ve been able to avoid the compromises that can occur when a facility develops over an extended period.” Mark is equally impressed and has reported that the Chinese production team are “very keen and will get to grips with our formulations very quickly once the plant is fully operational.” This is the first time PennWhite has licenced the manufacture of their products and is another significant step for the printing solutions division of the business.
