Swift scoops SADC annual Quality Award

Swift Micro Laboratories is proud to announce it has been honoured at the annual SADC Quality Awards, winning in the category for the company whose service best reflects commitment to quality.

Companies throughout the SADC region were evaluated in this category for superior service, with judging criteria taking into account the service quality delivered to customers.

“Providing testing services to Africa has presented a number of challenges, so we are especially delighted to have achieved this award as it reflects the many hurdles we have overcome. It also provides our SADC clients with independent evidence of the value we bring and demonstrates that they can continue to rely on the excellent testing services Swift has provided over the years.” says Anza Bester, Business Development Manager.

The awards ceremony will take place in Malawi on 21 March 2012.

This award comes hot on the heels of Swift’s win late last year of a South African Quality Award* which recognised the company’s excellent service and automatically qualified them for entry into the SADC competition.

*The South African Quality Awards are held annually and were established by the government through the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) with the aim of promoting quality and effective quality management methodologies in South African business. It is adjudicated by the dti, Business, Labour, the National Metrology Institute of South Africa, the South African Bureau of Standards and the South African National Accreditation System. Awards are made in five categories, with Swift receiving recognition for service that best reflects commitment to local production and quality.
