|Clover Tool Europe Ltd, the European division of Houston, Texas based Clover Tool Company Inc, has recently been certified to ISO9001:2015 Standard. Country Manager, Andy Downs explains in detail the importance of the certification as the company continues to grow from strength to strength.
Andy said “Achieving this accreditation was high on our priorities when establishing Clover Tool Europe Ltd, and working together with DNV on this was an obvious choice for us. Although DNV are possibly the toughest auditor to appease, we felt that they are by far the most knowledgeable of our equipment and services. Meeting their standards would be the highest level of verification possible. The end result, is a great practical, and genuinely valuable working relationship with DNV. Using this constantly active process will advance and evolve what we do, as well as validate to us and to our customers that we do, what we do, as well as we say we can.”
The company, based in Badentoy Business Park, south of Aberdeen, has been established only a couple of years and their opening, coincided with the drop in the price of crude. Despite this, they continue to grow at a pace.
Andy continued “Establishing a new branch or company in the current market has been tough, it’s been a lot of hard work, trust and belief for all of us on both sides of the Atlantic. There is a lot of keen competition out there. Although the “Clover” name was already established and renowned for over 30 years worldwide, I felt we had to go further to support and verify that our new branch could not only meet those high standards and maintain that reputation that Don Clover and JR Russell afforded us, but to advance it into what my team can bring to the market and to the company.”
