Trelleborg Sealing Solution’s seal manufacturing facility in Tewkesbury, England, is thought to be the first of its kind to obtain a prestigious international quality standard.

The facility has achieved PD ISO/TS 29001:2011.

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 center 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 as well as a final appraisal.

As stated by the 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 molding, machining and laboratory testing, for the aerospace, chemical processing, oil and gas, semi-conductor and other industries.”

Products designed and made at the plant include O-Rings, FlexiMold™ large diameter joint free seals, engineered molded parts and large diameter V-Rings.
