What You Can Expect From Us
Performance, Focus & Quality
Universal Gaskets has a sophisticated production management system specifically designed and featured to manage our production process. The system generates work orders that specify the materials to be used and how they are to be prepared, the tools and machines to be employed to make the product and the quality assurance checks that are required at various stages of the production process. Specific safety and environmental risks are also managed via work orders.
The work order system, in conjunction with our scheduling and supply chain management approach, has achieved extremely high on-time delivery performance (100% on-time delivery with most of our Customers) and a low defect rate (less than 50 parts per million).
All our systems are under constant review by all our staff to make them the best that they can be to ensure that we offer our customers a competitively priced quality product on or before the agreed delivery date.
