Glenroy strives to provide a workplace free of health & safety hazards. In order to do this effectively we rely upon every person in the company to follow the policies and procedures we develop. We also require all employees to contribute to the overall safety of our business by providing feedback on safety issues. It is therefore your personal responsibility, as a condition of employment, to follow our safety policies and to report conditions that you feel are not safe.

Glenroy strives for the highest quality products and service levels in the industry.  In keeping with our tradition and heritage of building a culture of quality, the Company applies three tactics.  First, we make every effort to select employees that are intrinsically motivated and willing to accept high levels of personal responsibility. Second, we maintain a comprehensive Quality Manual which sets the quality expectations for the entire company.  Third, we have a robust training program to ensure all employees understand the quality expectations and are equipped to perform the required quality checks.  At the operational level this means that shop floor employees take ownership for manufacturing a quality product.  This includes visual and physical inspection, process control adjustment and conditions that require shutting down the process and suspending product. 

Company Leadership

Leadership has the responsibility of understanding customer requirements and effectively communicating those to all employees.  Leadership also has the authority to make decisions relating to the disposition of non-conforming material in accordance to customer specifications, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s), and company policies.
