Distinction Doors Reveals Quality Control Mark

As part of its continuous improvement cycle, Distinction Doors has introduced a quality control mark for its doors.

This initiative underpins the company’s commitment to producing premium high-quality doors, consistently, and gives assurance to its customers.

Colour coded stamp

There are now three quality control areas at the Distinction Doors manufacturing facility in Barnsley. Each area is allocated a colour coded stamp dependent on their stage in the manufacturing operation – red for prep, green for paint, and black for glazing. Staff within these areas are tasked with conducting the final quality control inspection before the product is sent to the next process or despatch.

Unique ID

For greater reassurance, every quality inspector has a unique identification number. This number is for internal use only, but it enables Distinction to pinpoint exactly who conducted and passed each quality control inspection.

The quality control mark was developed following an extensive Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA). After which, process checks, test methods and minimum product standards were trained out to staff – including the new quality control exercise.

Associate Director of Quality for Distinction Doors, Jamie Kerrigan, says:
“Quality assurance can require a change of culture. Everyone takes pride in their work. This initiative encourages the operatives to take greater responsibility and care with the products they handle and produce. 
“I am pleased that so far, the feedback has been extremely positive. Staff are happy with the accountability. So too are our customers. They are responding well to the improved process and like the visual reminder.”

Jamie leads all aspects of quality and continuous improvement. He and his team of quality and improvement specialists are responsible for implementing and managing continuous improvement, and proactive, reactive, and legislative quality assurance throughout the business.
