After passing rigorous inspection processes, Hartzell Air Movement has become ISO 9001:2008 certified.
“The purpose was to improve our products, processes, and to make us more consistent,” said chief technology officer, Tom Gustafson. ISO is the only internationally recognized organization of standards. Companies who are ISO 9001 certified report improved delivery times, increased productivity, and a reduction in scrap and waste.
“With our growth of international sales, having the ISO 9001:2008 certification will be a big benefit,” said Gustafson.
Although being ISO 9001:2008 certified will attract some customers, the main purpose behind Hartzell’s actions was to improve processes internally, which would benefit employees and product quality. President of Hartzell Air Movement, Sean Steimle said, “Becoming ISO 9001:2008 certified is a significant milestone in Hartzell’s pursuit to become a leader in the air movement industry. Hartzell is dedicated to making continuous improvements to provide high performing and reliable air movement devices as well as quality services.”
