Kirkstall Precision Engineering passes ISO13485 audit with flying colours

Kirkstall Precision Engineering’s ability to provide medical devices, and related services, which have consistently met customer and applicable regulatory requirements, has long been a mainstay of our core business ethos.

As we are governed by medical regulatory requirements every 3 years, we must undertake a 5-day re-certification audit for our ISO13485 standard. The ISO13485 is an internationally agreed standard, which sets out the requirements for a quality management system specific to the medical devices industry. 

The Kirkstall Precision Engineering 2021 year in review and year ahead

Compared to 2020, 2021 has certainly been an improvement for us all, whether it be in your personal or professional lives. Saying that, it’s still been a year filled with unique challenges posed by the global pandemic and Brexit.

It was a year that saw our team return fully to the Kirkstall Precision Engineering site and remain incredibly disciplined in their adherence to Covid guidelines. The strict measures we put in place, and our people embracing following them, meant our employees protected both each other, our customers, and our business.

We’re recruiting: Production Planner/Scheduler

Kirkstall Precision is the leading precision engineering sub-contractor to the global medical instrumentation sector. When you join our company, you will become part of a fast-paced and dedicated team that works together to provide our customer with the highest possible level of service and quality without compromise. We are at the leading edge of machining technologies and are dedicated to delivering efficiency and reduced cycle times for our clients predominately in the medical and veterinary as well as other key sectors.

Why we took a day out of the business with our team to have some fun

With 68% of HR professionals reporting that their employees’ people skills were average or worse before the pandemic, and nearly half that those people skills got worse during the pandemic, the time was certainly right to find ways to ensure Kirkstall’s people were interacting again but in fun ways that would then bleed into the workplace.
