Batten and Allen Ltd is a designer / manufacturer and electroplater of precision stampings, with over forty years’ experience. We provide parts for electrical, electronic, medical, automotive, telecommunication, consumer products, jewellery and solar energy.applications from our base in Cirencester UK. We supply hundreds of millions of components worldwide each month.
It is our policy to improve the performance of our Management System through a continuous programme of data collection, analysis and action. The purpose of our Management System is to satisfy or exceed customer expectations; helping us to maintain or improve the high standard of products and services that we provide. In addition to improving our performance we will reduce our environmental impact by complying with relevant environmental legislation and through progress towards our targets and objectives.
We are also committed to continual improvement, prevention of pollution and reducing risks associated with emergency situations (such as fire, flood and chemical release). To this end we will appraise our performance during management review, and also review our targets and objectives to ensure that they remain appropriate.
To ensure the continued supply of components to our customers our disaster recovery team have prepared a detailed disaster recovery plan and agreed a partnership which allows us to transfer production to an alternative suitably equipped site in the event of a disaster affecting operations. Our plans include agreements that have been made with suppliers of key equipment, materials and products to aid or speed our recovery.
On site we have a designated fire proof storage area to protect our customer tooling
This advanced planning necessary to produce our disaster recovery plan and departmental contingency plans also takes into account potential disasters affecting our key suppliers. This process involved has allowed us to significantly reduce recovery time. Mitigating actions, designed to limit or reduce the scale or extent of a disaster, have been introduced.
Our fully equipped process control laboratory allows us to carrying out Quantitive Chemical Analysis (Titration) enabling us to determine the concentration of chemical constituent of the plating baths during the plating process.
As part of our Environmental policy we recycle 100% of our waste water through our state of the art effluent treatment plant and carry out testing using UV spectrophotometer to determine Copper, Nickel, Sulphate amongst other contaminants.
We also use XRF measurement to determine chemical analysis of the base materials.
