Fusion OEM, a local contract manufacturer specializing in assembly of industrial products for OEMs, announced that it has been awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification from Eagle Certification Group for the design, manufacture, distribution and service of their client’s products.
ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. ISO has over 19,500 international standards covering almost all aspects of technology and business. ISO 9001 is the most widely used quality certification and also one of the most stringent. This standard ensures that every aspect of a contract manufacturer’s business is well-run and continually improving, including key processes, management roles and responsibilities, documentation, customer satisfaction, employee training, service and internal audits. Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer requirements.
The challenges faced by manufacturing companies today are very different from a few decades ago and ISO 9001 has been updated to take this new environment into account. More than a dozen process owners and internal auditors worked to upgrade Fusion OEM’s quality management processes, engage in continuous improvement on those processes, and develop training designed to increase customer satisfaction.
“At Fusion OEM, quality is woven throughout the fabric of our business,” said Craig Zoberis, President of Fusion OEM. “We demonstrate it with our commitment to a quality management system that reflects a lean culture of continuous improvement. We deliver it with continual training and development of that system to provide industry-leading manufacturing solutions to our customers. Our upgrade from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 certification strongly acknowledges that we do both.”
ISO certification requires manufacturers to constantly review, improve and document the processes in their facility to ensure that they are running at the highest standard possible. By obtaining this upgraded certification, Fusion OEM is ensuring that they are optimized, competitive, and delivering the highest quality and value to their customers.
