Markforged Inc, Boston, Massachusetts, USA, has announced that its materials manufacturing facility in Billerica, Massachusetts, is now ISO 9001:2015 certified with TUV Rheinland of North America, having met rigorous quality management and quality assurance standards.

Achieving this certification is expected to streamline the supplier audit process, unlocking more business-critical and production applications for Markforged, as many regulated industries, such as aerospace, require suppliers to conform to the processes and controls within ISO 9001:2015. This recent certification, along with the company’s existing ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for information security management, will enable the company support enterprises of all sizes.

“Achieving this latest certification is a true reflection of the great manufacturing culture that has been nurtured at our Billerica facility and the overall commitment to quality and reliability that runs deep in our company’s DNA,” stated Scott Kaempfe, Markforged’s Senior Director, Manufacturing. “We are committed to building a world-class, scalable production facility that will deliver high-value and reliable performance for our customers now and in the future.”

The standard ensures an organisation demonstrates its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet and enhance customer satisfaction and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
