From 9001 via 14001 and on to becoming an integral part of the team
Pop open a piece of electronic equipment manufactured in Britain today and the chances are you will find a transformer or coil made by Amethyst Designs. Customers cover industry sectors such as military, aerospace, medical, transport and Government Research. Operating out of its Cambridge base Amethyst continues to build on the solid foundation set up by the company's founders.
For JWS Solutions work with Amethyst started in January 2003 with a brief to convert the existing text based system into flow chart format. The project went well and when the desire to become registered to 14001 became a reality it was again JWS that the management of Amethyst turned to for assistance.
The second generation of Amethyst Directors, Paul Wealleans and Andrew Greavett have kept a relationship with us right from those early days.
Initially providing just internal auditing services, as the company has continued to expand so has the role for JWS Solutions. In 2007 we provided the assistance for the modernisation of the Health and Safety system and this has now been added to the support role we have.
Visits are made once a month where the consultant fulfils the role of surrogate Manager for the quality, environmental and health and safety system. The work encompasses audits, management reviews, control of the various registers used to control the environmental and health and safety systems and provides attendance at the annual surveillance visits by their assessing body. Mutual trust has enabled the relationship to flourish to a point where now JWS are an integral part of the Amethyst Team.
