As a manufacturer, whatever your industry, when you are looking for a supplier to support you with your systems and processes ensuring you choose the right partner is crucial.
Capability and expertise will undoubtedly be a key factor and trust is vital too. One indicator that an organisation is reliable and has undergone a high level of scrutiny is ISO certification. ISO certification is recognised worldwide and by choosing a partner with this level of accreditation you can be confident that you will be working with an organisation with robust, effective processes in place as well as the highest level of customer service.
ISO:9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). It is based on several quality management principles which we believe in strongly at DRB, including a strong focus on customer service, process approach and continual improvement, as well as management leadership and the engagement of people.
The most recent update to ISO:9001 is 2015 and this version was released to ensure that the standard continued to adapt to the changes and developments in working environments.
Holding this certification demonstrates the credibility of an organisation and provides peace of mind that the organisation
- follows the guidelines of the ISO 9001 standard
- fulfils its own requirements
- meets customer requirements
- meets statutory and regulatory requirements
- maintains documentation
It is a clear indication that a business is seeking to continually improve. If you are a manufacturer looking for an engineering partner then looking out for ISO 9001 accreditation is advisable.
At DRB Group we have been accredited to ISO 9001 since 1992 and are certified to the latest 2015 standard. In addition, we regularly carry out customer and industry audits to confirm our quality standards.
