For over 30 years, Kinder & Co has been recognised as a leading independent supplier and manufacturer 0f reliable, innovative and efficient conveyor solutions. In that time, Kinder & Co has successfully built an enviable reputation for improving the bulk handling materials industry with innovative products and solutions delivered with unparalled levels of customer service and efficiency.
Recently in December 2012, this family-owned has chalked up another significant milestone in its journey, as they achieved recognition with the award of the prestigious AS and ISO standards certifications from Bureau Veritas. On the 20th of December 2012, Kinder & Co achieved the AS/NZS ISO 9001, AS/NZS 4801, OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS ISO 14001 certifications for the provision of tailored, engineerd solutions for bulk materials handling and standard and customised conveyor hardware components, flow and anti-wear products, screening products, conveyor skirting and belt transfer products, belt cleaning systems, bucket elevator components, conveyor process equipment and associated safety and environment products for the generation, mining and mineral processings, metallurgic smelting and refining, salt, sugar and grain industries.
This achievement is the culmination of a project birthed by the founding director of the company, Neil Kinder over a year ago. Since then, Neil has mobilised his team of engineers and staff to work together to streamline, realign and refine the processes in the business to comply with the stringent and high standards demanded by AS and ISO certifications to take the business to the next level. “What started as a vision to take our award winning company even further in the minds and eyes of our customers and industry has today become a reality. This gives everyone in the business a boost of confidence that our processes and service offering to our customers is world class and is recognised by the highest authority out there,” Neil added.
From its humble beginnings, Kinder & Co has always emphasized the importance of integrity, knowledge, trust and the family values in its operations – evident in every facet of the customer experience, from initial enquiry to product fulfillment and delivery through to after-sales support. With the advent of technology and state-of-the-art hardware and software systems in the industry, Kinder & Co has been quick to embrace new things and have recently successfully ported their operations to SAP, giving the business and its engineers unprecedented access to information, capabilities and capacity. The next logical step in the journey points to recognition by an external quality and standards authority such as Bureau Veritas to give the company the accreditation it deserves that can pave the way to even greater trust, confidence and assurance from existing and new customers.
With this new achievement under its belt, Kinder & Co’s ‘MADE BETTER’ mantra is now even more complete.
