We provide customised solutions, create unique products, and deliver an excellent service meeting the exacting specifications demanded by our weaving and yarn processing customers worldwide. In order to achieve this we operate a Quality Management System (QMS) in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. Top management is committed to: • Ensuring that customer, and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements are determined, understood and consistently met. • The continual improvement of the business QMS by ensuring that the potential risks, and opportunities, that can influence the conformity of products and services are determined and addressed in a way that focusses on maintaining and enhancing, customer satisfaction. Top management shall: • Take accountability for the effectiveness of the QMS. • Ensure that the quality policy and quality objectives are established for the QMS and that they are compatible with the context and strategic direction of the Company. • Ensure that the quality objectives have been set and are maintained as part of the QMS internal auditing, monitoring and management review processes, in order to enhance customer satisfaction. • Promote the use of a process approach and risk-based thinking. • Ensure that the appropriate resources, both direct and indirect, needed for the QMS are made available. • Communicate the importance of effective quality management within the business in order to conform to the QMS requirements. • Promote improvement. • Ensure skills and knowledge are retained within the business through training. • Establish partnerships with suppliers and interested parties to provide an improved service. This policy will be communicated to all employees and organisations working for, or on, our behalf. Employees and other organisations are expected to co-operate and assist in the implementation of this policy, whilst ensuring that their own work, so far as is reasonably practicable, is carried out without risk to themselves, others, or the environment.

WINTER WEATHER

MAYFIELD MILL BATTLES THE STORM

With the recent weather events in the UK the Mayfield team have proved, once again, that we have the determination, resolve, skill and experience to deal with any adverse issues that we face and can continue to deliver excellent product and service to our customers. On 11th January a series of strong gusts of wind provided "perfect storm" conditions which resulted in an external wall collapsing and leaving a sizeable hole in the wall. Importantly nobody was hurt. The response by all members of the Mayfield team was immediate, proactive and driven by the objective of ensuring the continuation of delivering excellent customer service and quality product. Despite challenging working conditions the affected area was sealed off, immediate remedial actions were taken and production was restarted. Whilst we still have to finish the construction work, the response of everyone at Mayfield Yarns, alongside the immediate fixes implemented, has ensured that our business continues as usual.
