Commitment to Quality
Ensuring quality is a continuous on-going process at all production units of the Corporation. Each facility has a Quality Department whose business is to see that all quality norms are strictly adhered to in the manufacturing process. Products manufactured by these centres conform to international standards such as IEC 62040 Part 2&3, IEC 146, IEEE 944, IEEE 344 and IS 4540 among several other product-specific standards.
All major production centres and business units of Keltron are ISO 9000 certified.
Inspectorate of Naval Armament (SINA-T) has implemented their customized quality systems at Keltron Equipment Complex, Trivandrum.
Capacitors, Crystals & Resistors manufacturing plants are ISO certified and have been granted LCSO approval.
Keltron's technology base is built up on the foundation of technical collaborations with world leaders like Control Bailey France, GEC Alsthom, Hitachi Japan, Asea Brown Boveri Switzerland, Kent, Dessault France etc.
Right from the days of inception, Keltron had a clear vision of the role of technology in the development process and set up a large infrastructure for this purpose in the form of Electronic Research & Development Centre (ER&DC) in the same campus. In course of time this establishment was taken over by the Government of India, as C-DAC, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing. Keltron has an arrangement with C-DAC, for technology development and adaptation.
Other sources of technology are DRDO labs like NPOL, NSTL etc for defence products, NIOT for marine applications and ISRO for aerospace related activities. Foreign tie ups are also undertaken on need basis.
