Silver Eagle Manufacturing, a provider of military light tactical trailer and converter dolly manufacturing, has received ISO 9001:2008 certification, an internationally recognized standard issued to organizations with a quality management system. The certification was authorized by TÜVRheinland, a provider of independent testing and certification services.
ISO 9001:2008 provides a set of requirements that must be in place to have a quality management system, regardless of the organization’s size, product or service line, or public or private status. Certification to the standard is voluntary, and organizations must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar.
“Silver Eagle’s new ISO 9001:2008 registration provides a strong foundation for enhancing our ability to serve our customers better,” says Ali Saalabian, senior vice president of operations for Silver Eagle. “It further disciplines us to continuously and repeatedly utilize the Lean Manufacturing principals we’ve been employing to improve quality, decrease costs and reduce lead times.”
Silver Eagle engineers, manufactures and markets a variety of trailers and mobile integrations for the U.S. military and defense contractors. It also serves the long-haul trucking industry by manufacturing custom-configured converter dollies and the law enforcement channel with the RapidWall mobile barrier, a trailer-based blockading system.
