Barton Petroleum’s lubricants supplier, Morris Lubricants,s has become the first lubricants blender in the UK to achieve a globally recognised accreditation for its laboratory.
Morris Lubricants is now accredited to ISO 17025, which is the single most important international standard for calibration and testing laboratories.
The standard recognises that the company has demonstrated that it is technically competent and able to produce precise and accurate test data, following a thorough evaluation of the laboratory’s quality management system by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, UKAS.
Phil Saunders, Morris Lubricants’ quality assurance manager and Caroline Walton, the company’s regulatory affairs manager, led the company’s bid for ISO 17025 accreditation. “We are the first lubricants blending facility in the UK to achieve accreditation, which is a real feather in the cap for the company,” he said.
“This accreditation demonstrates to our customers the professional competency of our laboratory and potentially creates an opening to develop new business as an internationally recognised testing centre for lubricants.
“ISO 17025 will also support the continued growth of our export business as it’s a globally recognised standard.”
Morris Lubricants has been manufacturing lubricants in Shrewsbury since 1869. More than 146 years of development has seen the company grow to become one of Europe’s leading oil blenders and marketers, with a reputation for quality and service.
The company offers an extensive range of performance lubricants covering a wide variety of application areas, from steam engines to modern-day commercial vehicles and industrial machinery. The oils are capable of coping with temperature extremes, from the searing heat of the Outback in Australia to the freezing Arctic Circle.
