Precision products demand a culture of manufacturing excellence. Attention to all aspects of quality is therefore critical to our success

All our manufacturing processes, measurement verification and environmental management are backed by modern integrated management systems with international accreditation.

This stringent quality performance is delivered at a substantial discount compared to comparable tooling solutions providers in Europe, Japan and North America. Efficient use of advanced technologies also places us ahead of competitors from low labour cost countries in terms of affordable quality and shorter lead times.

Quality Manufacturing Processes

Marand has implemented quality management systems to meet the demands of ISO-9001:2008 for design and manufacturing, CASA for aerospace component machining, and AS9100 for aerospace.

Quality systems operate at every step of our design and production process and underpin our commitment to provide a quality product.

Accountable manufacturing processes produce equipment with ever narrower tolerances and flexible operating conditions. Our product traceability system enables us to track all materials and components to their point of origin. All details or parts produced are inspected and signed off before assembly to minimise any risk of faults and failure.

Our designs consider our Environmental management system requirements (ISO14001:2004) and can be tailored to meet your own stringent environmental requirements.

From Quality Workmanship to High Tech Precision

Already internationally recognised for its design and special purpose machine capability Marand attained Quality Management system accreditation to ISO9002 in 1998, then QS 9000:1998 in 1999 and ISO 9001:2000 in 2003.

In 2009 Marand attained ISO9001:2008 and AS9100C superceeding all previous versions.
