Quality and traceability

Formed in 1982 Swift Fasteners have a wealth of experience within the fastener industry. Serving customers in all the major industrial categories with a variety of Quality and Service requirements, we excel at meeting constantly improving standards with speed and efficiency.

Quality in action has been our philosophy since the beginning and to formalise our commitment to Quality, as well as the many individual customer approvals, we have approvals from the following official bodies:

BRITISH STANDARDS INSTITUTE BS EN ISO 9001

SGS-ISO-9001-UKAS

Our Stock Control and  Management Systems

In addition to meeting set standards some customers require a quality of product achieved by hand finishing inspecting and packing. Working closely with the customer we achieve this level of quality thereby eliminating the expense of rejection.
