Quality control, quality control, quality control is the cry throughout dsm ltd. It is paramount to our business ethos and all employees are with the programme and fully understand the importance of it.
The nature of scallop gear (small section, very hard steels) and the environment it works in, means that ANY faults in quality are quickly observed and catch rates are immediately lowered – or to put it another way, bad gear falls to bits or wears out very quickly allowing scallops to escape!
We have rigorous quality control procedures which carry on throughout the manufacturing process leading to a final check which must be passed before dispatch. For example all our scallop bellies experience 5 quality control checks at different stages of manufacture before they leave our factory.
