Investors In People
We were awarded Investors In People status in 2006 and we continue to dedicate ourselves to maintaining it. It’s the people we employ who make our business what it is, that’s why we’re committed to providing them with the most up to date training, development opportunities and support we can offer.
A Living Wage Employer
ReAgent is proud to be a Living Wage employer. Our staff are at the heart of everything we do, and we believe in doing the best we can for them. It’s important to us that we meet and exceed employment best practices, and that our staff feel fairly rewarded and happy to work at ReAgent.
A Living Hours Employer
As well as being a Living Wage Employer, ReAgent is also a Living Hours Employer. This means that we guarantee a minimum of 16 hours’ work a week (unless an employee requests otherwise), a contract that accurately reflects hours worked, and at least four weeks’ notice of shift changes.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
REACH regulations dictate that by law, suppliers of hazardous chemicals must provide a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for all substances and mixtures classified as hazardous. These must also be provided upon request for non-classified products that contain hazardous substances above certain limits.
Certificates of Analysis (CofA)
We can provide certificates of analysis for any product that has been tested to a specification; these are available at any time upon request or as a standard requirement to fulfilling orders.
Certificates of Conformity (CofC)
To demonstrate that a product has been manufactured in accordance with our rigorous quality system, we can supply a Certificate of Conformity (CofC) for your records.
Both existing and potential customers are equally welcome to audit our facilities and will always be treated in an open and hospitable manner. We always respond in a positive manner to suggested actions resulting from the audit as we welcome any opportunity to improve our manufacturing facility.
Your industry standards
Part of our ability to offer completely bespoke service lies in our willingness to adopt new standards or processes specific to the needs of individual customers, their products or their industries. If your industry regulations require your product to be manufactured in a certain way, documented using a specific process or tested to specific standards we will adapt our facility to accommodate these needs.
Automotive, PPAP, PFMEA and 8D Problem Solving processes
Many of our customers are based in the automotive industries so we’re familiar with the processes involved in manufacturing for these highly complex and rigorously efficient markets. From concept to manufacture, we will work with you to develop a toolkit to get an automotive supply chain up and running in our facility.
Our goal is to always provide the best value for our customers whatever their individual project, industry or circumstance. We employ Lean manufacturing techniques to extract maximum value from our processes and procedures. Find out more about Lean (also known as Kaizen) on our blog.
GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)
Our production and all processes are based on GMP and our production team is well trained in GMP awareness to ensure consistency of quality in all products we manufacture. Learn more about Good Manufacturing Practice including how it is used here at ReAgent over at our blog.
