14 July, 2016

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions’ seal manufacturing facility in Tewkesbury is believed by the company to be the first of its kind to obtain the international quality standard PD ISO/TS 29001:2011.


The facility is one of the prime European production and development sites within the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions manufacturing network.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions states that meeting the standard reflects the facility achieving high standards in the design and manufacturing of elastomer products with robust processes in place as well as a commitment to reduce waste and prevent defects.

Chris Busby, product manager for the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Tewkesbury, commented: “As a centre of excellence for high pressure elastomer materials for a variety of challenging industries, such as, oil and gas, and aerospace, we are constantly striving to achieve exceptional standards.

“Obtaining the quality management system PD ISO/TS 29001:2011 at the Tewkesbury facility is a further example of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions going above and beyond in the pursuit of excellence.”

The production site passed two assessments and a final appraisal during a rigorous eight-month period.

According to accreditation body BSI, the plant now “operates a quality management system which complies with the requirements of PD ISO/TS 29001:2011 for the following: the design, development, manufacture and supply of elastomer-based sealing systems for a wide variety of applications. Predominant activities include elastomer moulding, machining and laboratory testing, for the aerospace, chemical processing, oil and gas, semi-conductor and other industries.”

The 6000 sq m site, based in International Drive, Tewkesbury Business Park, became fully operational in 2008 and employs more than 130 people.
