Electrolube reports success in India, new global standard for OHS
Electrochemicals manufacturer Electrolube has been awarded the new global standard for occupational health and safety, the ISO 45001. The new standard replaces the international former workplace health and safety standard, the OHSAS 18001, which officially ends in March 2021.
Electrolube has now successfully migrated from the former OHSAS 18001 well in advance of the standard’s expiration date, achieving the certificate on its first attempt. The ISO 45001 accreditation joins Electrolube’s current ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 14001 Environmental Management credentials, enabling the company to offer three respected ISO standards to the broad range of manufacturing industries it serves.
“We are delighted to be awarded the ISO 45001 standard, which acknowledges our commitment to achieving the highest standards in our health and safety practices across all of our international sites,” said Electrolube Managing Director Ron Jakeman. “Our compliance with the new global health and safety management standard is an important accomplishment for us as a specialist electrochemicals manufacturer, and it joins an extensive host of standards that our products and services currently meet both at our UK headquarters and internationally.”
The company has separately announced the recent success of its Indian manufacturing facility in Bangalore. Electrolube India has been operating locally for seven years and recently confirmed a 40% increase in gross turnover for 2017–2018 — set to reach 91% in 2019. Electrolube India has also been awarded the ISO 9001-2015 standard for its numerous quality management principles as well as a strong customer focus and a culture of continual improvement.
“We are delighted with the response we have had from Indian manufacturers,” Jakeman said. “Our growth in India has been exponential. We have been fortunate that our international reputation preceded us as a highly customer focused company that thrives on solving problems and providing effective solutions across the entire design and production processes. This has certainly served us well, but even more so, our dedication to providing a complete range of solutions that truly meet the needs of local manufacturers is what really differentiates Electrolube.
“Our R&D team has been consistently recognising the requirements of local LED, EV/automotive, mobile, consumer and industrial manufacturers, and we have invested significantly in developing innovative new products that solve these reliability and performance issues, using locally sourced materials at cost-effective prices and supplied in the shortest lead-time possible. The new thermal management solutions and encapsulation resins, developed for the Indian market, have been so popular that they have been adopted into many additional territories around the world. They also have the endorsement of Electrolube’s UK R&D team.
“Electrolube India’s growth is showing no signs of slowing down, particularly within the LED industry, where Electrolube is literally taking the market by storm with its clear supply benefits of locally produced products on short lead times. Now that we are firmly established as a local solutions provider, we are able to respond rapidly to customers and have produced successful solutions in as little as 24 hours. The disclosure of our 91% increase in turnover in India this year clearly demonstrates how India’s top OEMs are now favouring Electrolube products for all of their electrochemical requirements.”
