Optomec facility ISO 9001 certified for 8th consecutive term

July 5, 2021

The Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA-based Optomec Inc’s production facility in Clover, South Carolina has been recertified for ISO 9001 for the eighth consecutive term after an audit by Bureau Veritas. The facility has now maintained this certification, which the company refers to as key element in its Quality Management System, for more than twenty years.

“The ISO 9001 certification process is a fantastic tool that engrains the concept of continuous improvement throughout the organisation,” stated Doug Childers, General Manager of the Clover facility. “It drives every one of our employees to solve small problems early, rather than go around big problems later.”

The ISO 9001 certification is an internationally recognised standard that ensures a company possesses a documented system of quality management and quality assurance. The standard assures customers and stakeholders that the supplier has established a manufacturing culture of the highest quality and continuous improvement and that the supplier responds to the needs of its customers through the entire product delivery process–from the specification and design stage to manufacturing, delivery and customer support.
