World Class Manufacturing Facilities

Our manufacturing facilities use “Lean Techniques” to ensure we always deliver on time and, where agreed, hold on site stock at our OEMs. We are connected to our suppliers online, who automatically replenish to point of use in the factory as they can see in real time what we have consumed. Replenishment of factory stock is via vendor managed inventory and kanban.

Our Class 1000 clean room covers 2,600 sq. ft. with ISO-14644-1 specification, and exceeds <1000 particles of <0.5 μM per cubic ft. Our production floor uses bespoke automated test processes with self-diagnostics to ensure the highest possible quality of product. We also operate in a culture of using six sigma, root cause analysis tools and kiazen methodology to continually improve our quality.

We are accreditation holders of BS EN ISO9000:2000, ISO14001 Environmental and ISO18000 Health and Safety. 

First in Quality

Andor has been driving the market in terms of setting the standards for quality of scientific cameras for the industrial marketplace.

This highly important measure has been achieved by on-going investments in our operations plant facilities; having our engineering team work hand-in-hand with the customer during the solution development process; continuing the education of our manufacturing and service technicians; and regular formal quality reviews during the life-cycle of the project.

Andor runs many quality improvement programmes, such as root-cause analysis on each and every OEM product non-conformance. This process ensures that any product performance
not meeting the desired goal gets
systematically eliminated.
