Keyways has all the necessary government, industry and quality accreditations that you would expect from a leading provider of security and safety systems. The reason for all this is the desire to increase quality standards both within the Company but also within the industry to provide a better service for our clients. It is also a valuable motivating force for our staff who know that the quality of their work is recognized to the highest industry standards.
Keyways was accredited in the late 1980s by the then NSCIA which later became NACOSS and finally matured into the predominant industry regulator known as the NSI for which we are now a NSI Gold installer for intruder alarms, access control and CCTV systems. This also covers our accreditation for ISO 9000 2001 for which we were one of the first in the industry to meet the standard.
Keyways was also one of the original members of the Northern Master Locksmiths Association and the founder member of the National Association of Security Installation Companies (NASIC). In addition to this we were again among the first in our industry to achieve accreditation as an Investor in People. This was not an industry requirement but it was important for Keyways to achieve accreditation as a clear indication to our staff and clients that we understood that we could only achieve client satisfaction by ensuring that our staff were properly trained and developed.
Of course, there is no accreditation from the people and businesses who we have worked with over the years, many of whom have stayed with us for years. Our reputation with our customers is of vital importance to us and we are proud of the standing we have in the community.
