QUALITY & COMPLIANCE

In today’s world of six sigma standards and Kaizen events, Deufol incorporates these as part of our everyday operating life. Deufol solutions are underpinned with visible and documented processes and quality assurance standards throughout any scale of packaging project.

Our Quality Promise

Our commitment to quality is based on the following principles:

Your packaging partner should care about quality as much as you do.

You’ve put time, money, and countless other resources into designing and manufacturing a product that meets your high quality standards. You’ve sourced only the best parts and materials. You’ve recruited skilled and talented workers. And you’ve developed a quality process that ensures your product meets even the most rigorous specifications.

Quality is a high priority for you. That’s clear. So why doesn’t your packaging expert meet the same high quality standards you set for your vendors and your own products?

At Deufol, we live by our motto “Tough Packs Solved.” That simply means that no matter the challenge and no matter the complexity of the job, we make it our mission to complete it by deadline and to the highest possible quality specifications.

Culture of Quality Throughout the Organization

Our Quality Management System influences our entire day-to-day operating life, from team members on the floor all the way up to our highest levels of management. Our system is built on lean building blocks. We use data as our guide, constantly testing and improving our process with tools like root-cause analysis, process mapping, and Kaizen events. All of our initiatives are employee driven, with oversight by management.

This commitment to quality has allowed us to improve our production quality, reduce waste, improve efficiency, and quicken our response times.

Continual Testing and Improvement

Here at Deufol, we test everything. From customer requirements to regulatory issues to our own high quality standards, we constantly measure our performance against a number of important benchmarks.

We perform this testing by analyzing key elements of our quality system. Those elements are reviewed by cross-functional teams that include subject matter experts from a variety of departments. When an area for improvement is identified, a Key Element Owner is assigned and a countermeasure is agreed upon and implemented.

This process of continual testing and improvement has helped us ace countless external audits, customer quality tests, and other inspections. We will meet your quality standards because we hold ourselves to our own high standards.

Compliance Across the Organization

In addition to legislation and regulations, the Deufol Group is committed to a set of voluntary guidelines. This includes all measures that ensure compliance across the Group. Our compliance activities are designed to ensure that everything we do satisfies social and ethical standards.

The Deufol Group compliance program is an integral part of our management structure and encompasses all areas of the company. Designed to dovetail with our risk management strategy, it undergoes continuous improvement. We attach special importance to compliance in our operational processes, to maintain high standards of safety and quality for both our employees and our customers.

Our Kaizen Methodology

When implementing change or refinement to our quality process, we do so through the application of Kaizen methodology of continuous improvement. Some examples of Kaizen applications at Deufol include:

  • Training health reviews
  • Supplier monitoring and development
  • 3M Risk assessment (mispack, mislabel, misship)
  • Critical defect reduction through PPM surveillance
  • Weekly defect review with problem solving
  • And much more

Again, our daily operations are built around the idea of continuous improvement. We are always looking to enhance our quality system which allows us to better meet your goals, needs, budget, and schedule.
