Quality control

Hepworth manufactures to various standards including ISO 9001:2008, IRIS 2 and EN15085, with systems in place and a dedicated, experienced quality control department.

Since the company’s conception, quality has been a forefront priority in terms of systems produced for our customers.  As a direct result of this, the company has achieved several, highly sought after quality-assurance accreditations, recognising Hepworth Group globally as a company able to manufacture a product to an exceptionally high standard. Below are some of these certifications proving that our products are truly deserving of their ‘leading the way’ titles.

B Hepworth ISO 9001-UKAS logoThe ISO 9001 is a standard achieved recognising quality management systems that are specifically designed to help organisations, similar to that of B.Hepworth, ensure they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders.

B.Hepworth achieved this due to their continuing high standards in designing and manufacturing of windscreen wiping equipment.
