Colson Caster Corp., a manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, says it has been granted a new certificate of quality assurance from the International Organization for Standardization, which monitors manufacturers for adherence to the ISO 9000 family of standards for certification.
The certification represents a consensus of superior quality management practices recognized around the world. The certifications are essential and valuable to manufacturing companies as more customers insist upon the ISO standard level before considering product purchases.
“It is a great accomplishment to once again receive this certification for our quality management system,” says Vince Caligiuri, lead quality engineer for Colson. “Our goal is to satisfy the requirements of our customers, and this is certainly one of our major references for conducting business in today’s competitive manufacturing environments.”
ISO 9001:2008 is the standard that provides a set of sanctioned requirements for a quality management system. The ISO 9001:2008 standard creates a tried and tested framework for managing an organization’s processes so they consistently turn out product that assures and satisfies customer expectations. Other standards cover specific business aspects such as terminologies, performance improvements, process auditing, documentation and training practices.
