24 Apr Power-Packer Team Puts Quality First
Power-Packer is pleased to announce that our Westfield, Wis., manufacturing facility successfully completed its ISO audit on March 31. Our Quality Management Systems (QMS) are now re-certified to ISO 9001:2008 standards, and we will transition into the new 2015 ISO revision at our next surveillance audit in 2018.
“Our registrar, NQA, was at our Westfield plant for three days auditing all aspects of our QMS, including office and support processes, along with operations and assembly areas,” noted Rick Quinn, Power-Packer’s Quality System Leader. “During this extensive and detailed audit, we were extremely proud to have zero non-conformances and earn this important re-certification.”
According to Quinn, the entire Power-Packer team joined forces to expedite the audit process and showcase the company’s ongoing commitment to quality management.
“At Power-Packer, we have established a culture built on quality excellence,” he shared. “Every one of our employees takes pride in his or her work and is focused on efficiency and continuous improvement, which aligns directly with ISO 9001. As a team, we understand that being consistent and sustaining our QMS is vital to not only our success, but our customers.”
ISO 9001 is the most widely used QMS standard in the world, with over 1.1 million certificates issued to organizations in 178 countries.
“At Power-Packer, ISO 9001 provides a foundation for us to document our processes, establish baselines for them, and work toward continuous improvement in every area of our business, both independently and collectively,” Quinn noted. “We’re extremely proud of our entire workforce for not only achieving this re-certification, but for their commitment to consistently satisfy our customers and other stakeholders.”
