Seal of approval for Kestrel Powder Coating

Birmingham based Kestrel Powder Coating has been awarded a Qualicoat coating applicator approved licence, assuring the quality of its powder coating service for extruded aluminium profiles.

Qualicoat is an independent, globally recognised product certification scheme. To gain recognition, applicators must use Qualicoat licenced products and employ a precisely specified process for the powder coating service.

Kestrel Powder Coating, sister company to Kestrel Aluminium, has been providing powder coating to the relevant quality standard (BS EN 12206) for many years. The Qualicoat certification adds an additional layer of rigorous assessment, with inspectors examining each step of the Kestrel process to ensure that every stage of production and customer service is carried out to consistently high standards.

According to Kestrel, the certification is a welcome recognition of the degree of training and focus on quality improvement that it has developed in recent months.

Nicki Baylis, general manager at Kestrel, said: “The Qualicoat licence demonstrates both the quality of our service and our ambition to be seen as a quality leader in the provision of powder coating services within the UK.”
