The Collaboration

“We have been working with Précon since 2016. This collaboration arose from a shortage of capacity.” says Heimen van Diest. “The position of quality manager was vacant at the time. Précon immediately assumed an executive and supporting role with the aim of safeguarding the legal requirements in our quality system. The Précon consultant was to the point and has made sure that everyone was on the same page. The pleasant cooperation with that consultant and our satisfaction with the services provided has resulted in the consultant’s current role, a completely different one, as and advisor. ”

“It is our experience that the consultant brings a lot of up-to-date knowledge about standards and laws and regulations and knows how to translate this very well and tailor it to our specific business situation.” adds Petra Ebbelaar, QESH coordinator.

The Challenge

“We are a flat organisation and practical.” says Heimen van Diest. “Also an innovative and dynamic organisation with more ‘doers than thinkers’. We recently completed the transition from ISO 9001: 2008 to 9001: 2015. At such a moment you experience Précon’s added value. We, the doers, may then think about the organisation based on the ISO standard, make a context analysis and consider our strengths and weaknesses. On a daily basis we are busy with these matters unconsciously, but we are less used to deliberately putting it on paper. The consultant mirrored this to us and provided structure for how to approach things. On an organisational level, the consultant has also initiated a number of changes: our HR personnel can now continue independently. During the same period, we worked hard together with the consultant to obtain BRC certification. The transition has been completed, the ISO 9001: 2015 and BRC (grade AA) certificates have been received. We are proud of the result we achieved, which is of the highest level. At such a moment we experience the added value of Précon. ”

Heimen van Diest says proudly: “The proof that Précon’s knowledge is of added value is that we have passed the ISO and BRC audits flawlessly. This is proof that the service, which is specifically tailored to our organization, is good!”

The Future

“We will continue to work with Précon in the future. They show us the way in the land of legislation and regulations. The consultant’s pro-active attitude gives us confidence that we are constantly up-to-date with legislation and regulations. ” says Heimen van Diest. “In addition, the consultant’s current knowledge and support to create and maintain support in the field on the organisation’s quality is very useful.” Petra Ebbelaar adds. “It is not without reason that quality is paramount to us.”
