Integrated Management Systems

Hypertec has always strived to differentiate itself from the competition based on the quality of its products and services. In fact, Hypertec Integrated Management System processes are applied to every business unit, products, and services. Commitment to the IMS principles has been the predominant factor in Hypertec’s customer satisfaction and has contributed significantly to its success over the years. Hypertec attributes a very high importance to its quality assurance and sustainability development plans and has incorporated internal and external auditing practices not only to preserve but also to continuously improve its processes.

Furthermore, Hypertec has an independent department dedicated exclusively to ensuring the grade of its products and services and environmental practices. The Quality Assurance & Sustainability department oversees the quality of integrated management systems, internal process controls as well as suppliers’ compliance. Implemented processes and performance of all business units are audited by QA team periodically against the Integrated Management Systems requirements. In addition, to guarantee complete objectivity and support, the QA department reports directly to the executive management of Hypertec.

From the external auditing perspective, Hypertec is audited annually by independent 3rd parties to maintain the ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO45001, and SA8000 certifications. The annual audits serve to validate and confirm that processes of Hypertec’s Management Systems are continuously updated in conformity with the international standards and compliance obligations.

Our Commitment

“Doing what is right” is our value and our reputation is built around integrity to that commitment. We have always strived toward a strong Quality, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety culture sustained by our Integrated Management System (IMS) which we believe is a critical element of our high customer satisfaction and the success of our business over the years. The IMS shapes everything we do, from our Quality, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety culture to our professional excellence that differentiates us from the competition.
