San Diego, CA, -- Chassis Plans, Systems Engineered to Perform®, today announced they have achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification, signifying that its quality management standards meet the rigorous industry requirements of the ISO Certifying Body. The ISO 9001:2008 standard is an internationally recognized quality management system developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Said Gary Channer, Specialist in Best Practice, Security and Quality Management Systems for IMSM Ltd. of Malmesbury, UK, "Dynamic initiative, innovation and a proactive approach are not words often associated with the process of building a Quality Management System - but for Chassis Plans, they symbolise the pleasure I had working alongside their team and the spirit of the company." Mr. Channer is a certified auditor for the ISO certification process.
"The Chassis Plans team takes great pride in achieving this significant goal which documents our core systems commitment," adds Marc DeMatteo, President, Chassis Plans. "Our existing quality standards were compliant, by design and practice, with ISO and this certification formalizes that effort. This coveted certification means that our quality management system assures the integrity of our processes and it reinforces the confidence that our customers have placed in us to deliver products that meet or exceed their exacting requirements."
To be certified to the standard, companies must implement a quality management system embracing the activities of the company. These include staff training, meeting customer expectations, designing and developing products, purchasing materials and services, and delivering products and services. This is done using Plan-Do-Check-Act principles (Deming Circle) and process management, which for Chassis Plans means demonstrating steps taken to provide customers the services and products they pledge. Certification to ISO 9001:2008 reinforces to customers, through an independent third-party, that Chassis Plans operates a quality management system in accordance with the standard.
