*The International Organization for Standardization, better known as ISO, is an international standard-setting organization that develops and publishes worldwide technical, industrial and commercial standards. All ISO standards are reviewed every 5 years in order to keep it current and relevant.
To become ISO 9001 certified, we went through an internationally recognized evaluation process that ensures we create, implement, and maintain a Quality Management System. We underwent a lengthy process that includes quality management system development, documentation review, audit, initial assessment, and clearance of non-conformances (which none were identified!). Being awarded ISO 9001 means we have a robust quality management system in place to deliver high quality products, at the same time meeting customer satisfaction and continuously reviewing and improving the way we work.
