Management Systems

At J H Richards we always recognise the critical nature of our customers’ components and the importance of getting them right first time. The company gained BS-5750 approval in 1987, the first Whitemetalling Company to do so. We have held the equivalent ISO-9001 status ever since.  In addition, we have held ISO-14001 accreditation and been reducing our impact on the environment since 2014.


Full inspection on receipt and contract review is carried out on every job, to ensure that all customers’ requests and specifications are worked to. Each job is identified with a unique job number and comprehensive job traveller, signed for by each person as the job goes through the factory. White metal is manufactured on our own premises, each batch given a unique number, analysed for conformity using our portable XRF instrument and recorded on our inspection sheets. Where possible bearings are centrifugally cast, to enhance the integrity of the casting.


All bearings are Ultrasonic and Dye Penetrant tested by approved operators twice, firstly at the proof machine stage and then as part of final inspection.Final inspection is carried out by a dedicated inspection team and, where possible, CMM measuring equipment is used. Full certification is provided on request.


Through Continuous Improvement, all employees are involved in the Quality Process and this proves essential in our ability to provide the quality service that our customers require.
