Quality management systems
We have always been proud of the quality of the goods and services that we offer and Axicon’s management systems have been ISO 9001 certified since 1993. We are currently certified to the latest quality standard ISO 9001:2015.
Externally assessed by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance, our certification gives you the peace of mind that we will consistently deliver goods and services above your expectations. We always welcome feedback from clients about any aspect of our work, and continually look to make enhancements to improve the quality of our systems and procedures
Axicon was also the first company to gain the status of Accredited Solution Provider – Barcode from GS1-UK and is a preferred supplier to several major retailers and blue chip manufacturers.
Labels and their packing involve a lot of wood and paper-based materials, so we have decided to source all our supplies from companies that are either certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, or that use recycled materials. Some companies use a mix of new material sourced from an FSC-certified supplier mixed with recycled material.
The FSC certification shows that the material comes from an environmentally managed forest where there is no net loss of trees over time, where biological diversity is maintained, and where the local people and staff also benefit.
Our main label material suppliers are FSC certified. All of the cores (the cardboard tubes inside each roll of labels) are made from 100% recycled paperboard. The cardboard boxes we use to send out our labels are made from a mix of 20% new FSC-certified material and 80% recycled board.
We can supply any customer with copies of our suppliers’ FSC statements or certifications for particular materials upon request.
Some special labels such as those printed on clear film are not paper-based, so we cannot provide FSC-certification for these types of product.
