GMCW™, Grindmaster-Cecilware Corp., is proud to announce the certification of its Crathco® division’s quality management system to the ISO 9001:2008 standard. This recent certification is part of GMCW’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and customer service.
In order to meet ISO 9001:2008 standards, Crathco® underwent a stringent evaluation process that included quality management system development, documentation review, gap analysis, internal audits, pre-assessment and clearance of non-conformances. This rigorous evaluation process allowed for the identification of necessary corrective actions and the elimination of non-conforming processes. The management system of Crathco® was assessed and certified as meeting the requirement of ISO 9001:9008 by SGS, a leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. Crathco’s compliance certificate was issued on Jan. 31, 2013.
GMCW’s decision to pursue ISO 9001:2008 certification at its Crathco® facility is a proactive step that not only anticipates the demands of its customers, but also demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing quality products and services, according to the release. GMCW is currently pursuing ISO registration at the company’s headquarters in Louisville, Ky.
