Headwall Successfully Re-Certifies to ISO 9001

Posted by Christopher Van Veen on Tue, Feb 17, 2015

Manufacturing companies of any size must demonstrate to their customers that they are quality-driven organizations. This holds for products, processes, and procedures. The global economy demands this. Since its inception, Headwall recognized that ISO certification would be a core competitive differentiator. The Company set out to be judged against the rigorous ISO9001 standard and was rewarded with certification in 2008. Indeed, Headwall was one of the smallest manufacturing companies to be so certified.

Our latest such audit with nqa-usa came this month, and we are very pleased and proud to say that we continue to be an ISO9001 organization. On the global stage, and with customers among the largest and best known, Headwall is recognized for having a level of thoroughness and discipline across the key areas of its business. This success translates into how our products are designed, how they are built, how corrective actions are identified and handled, how communications both internal and external are managed, and how procedures and processes are documented and then followed.

Achieving successful ISO9001 recertification is a proud moment for Headwall every three years, and we wanted to make mention of it here.
