Atom Kablo chooses BASEC for Product Certification and Marking for 15 years
Atom Kablo is one of the leading electric cable manufacturers and exporters in Turkey, employing 200 staff across their manufacturing plant in Denizli and their Istanbul Head Office. Established 25 years ago the company operates predominately in the LV cable market in both Turkey and the UK.
Exporting to the UK market
Fifteen years ago, Atom Kablo made the decision to begin exporting to the UK market. However, they realised that to achieve this they would need to demonstrate their reputation for quality, safety and traceability specifically to this market.
They needed to achieve ISO 9001 as well as gain product certification of their cables with a reputable and respected Accredited Body.
Atom Kablo chose BASEC’s Product Certification Scheme
Choosing BASEC’s Product Certification Scheme gave Atom Kablo ISO 9001 accreditation and enabled them to put the BASEC mark on their cable, giving their new export customers confidence in their cables.
Prior to the initial audit, BASEC was able to give training and guidance on how to approach the specific requirements of the scheme, ensuring it was implemented as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Once they achieved the BASEC mark, the lucrative UK market opened up to Atom Kablo which has resulted in a significant increase in sales.
