The Power of an ISO 9001:2008

By: Kelly Buchanan

That sounds fancy, doesn’t it?  For anyone who wants a brief explanation of all this ISO business, let’s simplify it.  ISO 9001:2008 is a quality management system that is used globally to ensure we meet and exceed our customers’ requirements.  With this quality management system, there are several procedures in place for all bo-mar departments.  Here at bo-mar we have our own ‘quality control’ department, headed by two long-time employees who take their jobs seriously.  Once a year, our quality control gets audited, with re-certification occurring every three years.  You may ask what this ISO certification gets us.  It certainly broadens our horizon and opens doors for new job opportunities!  Without our ISO 9001:2008, we wouldn’t be able to fabricate parts for companies like Amtrak, Applied Composites, or Dallara.
