Our customers and the supply chains they operate within are at the centre of our world, we invest time and resources to fully understand every customer’s unique requirements so we can develop a bespoke solution that not only meets their existing requirements, but also creates a roadmap for the future.
The belief that ‘Supply Chains Compete, not Companies’ shapes our behaviour to fully support the supply chain both upstream and downstream, enabling the entire supply chain to achieve its full potential and compete within the competitive global market.
We aspire to become a ‘true partner’ to all our customers by collaborating on innovative solutions to solve complex challenges, remove costs, reduce lead time, improve quality etc. all of which fosters a culture of trust in each other. In fact many of our customers have been working succesfully with us for many years and we are able to positively contribute to their strategic plans for the future.
Axis has developed an organization of amazing people. Through our graduate recruitment initiative, our award winning apprentice programme and by attracting talent from within industry, we have the dedicated people to consistently deliver the level of service and performance our customers expect.
We invest in our people with training and coaching helping every individual achieve their potential.
Core to the culture of our business and our people is the principle of delivery ‘right first time, every time’. We have over 100 internal performance indicators to ensure our internal ‘value chain’ is performing in line with our expectations and in addition we communicate with our customers every month on our performance to help identify opportunities for continuous improvement.
Our Social Responsibility
At Axis, we take our corporate social responsibility (CSR) to customers, suppliers, employees and the wider community very seriously. Our shareholders strive to conduct business in a socially responsible and ethical manner with high standards of personal and professional integrity. Axis understands and accepts the CSR flow down it recieves from its customers and suppliers, and this is also reflected within the SC21 framework and award.
Axis takes a leading role in recruitment of local school leavers through its apprenticeship scheme and we regularly present to local schools about careers within a manufacturing industry, Axis actively supports local charitable causes and hosts open days for local colleges – as you can see we are very engaged within our local community.
Axis is also very aware of its responsibility to the environment and as such we will play our part and contribute to the UK’s targets of cutting greenhouse gases by 34% and 80% by 2020 and 2050 respectively, against 1990 levels. To this end we are in the process of updating and enhancing our ‘Environmental Systems Manual’ to reflect the challenges we face and set new targets. We have an evolving Environmental strategy which is encapsulated in the Axis Electronics Environment Statement which is available as a download on this page.
