Techclean Systems - About Us
Cecil Hodgson studied Analytical Chemistry holding a London University degree in Physics and Chemistry - and subsequently worked for the Unilever Group for 30 years, during that time he worked on new product development, sales and marketing, for seven divisions. He was accepted internationally as an expert in his field and travelled extensively to Europe and South America presenting papers to Unilever companies and potential customers. He left the company to establish Techclean Systems cc in 1994, as a sales marketing company. In 1997 Techclean Manufacturing cc was established, as a manufacturing company, to facilitate the standards that Techclean Systems cc required, as they were unable to source a reliable company to manufacture the quality products that Techclean Systems needed to supply to the market place.   EMPLOYMENT EQUITY We practice an Affirmative Action Policy, which is in line with the Employment Equity Bill. We encourage the development of Personnel from previously disadvantaged communities, from within the company providing then with all necessary in house training. Techclean Systems is an exempt micro enterprise with a B-BBEE Profile status of a level 4 contributor. Upholding the well being of the environment and the health of those in the work place is uppermost in our consideration of what products to manufacture and where and how they should be used. Cost is never sacrificed at the expense of product safety and quality.   IS0 9002 – REGISTRATION NO. A1116SA Techclean applied for ISO 9002 in February 1997, and after full implementation of their required systems for management quality, audits of all suppliers, inspections for systems, personnel, raw material, finished products and customer/consumer safety and satisfaction, was accredited with ISO 9002. All formulations, hazard analysis documentation and technical data requirements are logged with ISO 9002. Internal quality audits are performed by all departments on a bi-monthly schedule. We have a preferred suppliers list, if they themselves conform to ISO 9002, and have all the necessary policies in place to protect the environment, and the health and safety of their personnel. On delivery of any raw materials to our factory, our in-house chemist checks the chemical analysis supplied by the supplier, the material safety data sheets and the actual product itself. Non-conformances with raw materials, packaging, suppliers, customers and staff, are dealt with in a manner advised by ISO 9002. Health and Safety Policies are included in ISO 9002, and are adhered to very strictly. Durban Metro audits our premises on a monthly basis. Anti-pollution measures have been taken and all necessary steps to avoid water, soil and air pollution are taken rigorously. All products are formulated with the environment in mind. Biodegradable raw materials are chosen where possible to ensure that the environment is kept safe for future generations. MASTER CHEMICAL BLENDERS ASSOCIATION Techclean Systems qualifies as a members of the Master Chemical Blenders Association,  which has very stringent policies regarding their membership qualifications. All companies have to have a full-time Chemist employed, with a fully functional laboratory, as well as having a quality assurance accreditation.
