Matt Cast Supplies cc was recently presented with its ISO9001:2008 quality management system certificate from Intertek, affirming that the company’s Germiston, Gauteng operation adheres to the internationally recognised standard for the quality system.
Matt Cast Supplies realised several years back that it was important to have certification, but as a small to medium size foundry did not have the financial means to put a formal quality system in place.
“We then approached the various bodies that could assist us in attaining the standard that is recognised worldwide. As you know it is not a cheap exercise to be certified and requires a fair amount of paperwork and discipline within a company. Once we had the criteria and requirements in place our appointed quality representative, who is a young graduate metallurgist from VUT, then took control of implementing the system,” said Allan Bruggeman, Managing Member of Matt Cast.
“The impetus for Matt Cast Supplies and our dedicated employees to attain ISO9001 certification was to improve the company’s global competitiveness.”
“In addition to a competitive advantage, we hope to realise increases in operational efficiency and productivity, and produce better quality castings. This is a landmark achievement that all of our employees can take pride in accomplishing.”
Matt Cast Supplies has been in operation since 1999 and has grown considerably over the years producing a wide range of castings using the no bake resin system for the manufacturing of pump, wear part, mining, rail, valves and castings for the general engineering industries.
Utilising two 500kg and one 250kg induction melting furnace gives the company the flexibility in manufacturing a wide range of castings and materials including cast steels, alloy steels, stainless steels, high chrome irons, SG irons, cast irons and many more material types to suit their customers’ needs.
“We also have a Belec 3000s spectrometer to ensure that all our materials are analysed and certification can be given for each melt.”
“Our in-house heat treatment facility compliments the foundry enabling quick turnaround times.”
