We are pleased to announce that we recently earned ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Achieving ISO certification aligns with our objectives of standardizing our manufacturing procedures and systems, providing a platform for continuous improvement, and delivering consistent, quality outcomes from our tool-building and production machining operations.
“We’re thrilled to achieve our long-standing goal of ISO 9001:2015 certification,” said
Tom Innis, president of Avantech. “Historically, we’ve always had a robust quality system. Taking this important step forward with ISO certification allows us to better deliver consistent quality and value to our customers and positions us relative to the growth opportunities we’re pursuing.”
Our recently added production machining capability—made possible through significant investment in people, equipment, and quality assurance technology—is a primary component of Avantech’s growth. Headed by Kevin Cook, general manager, and Jay Landree, CNC business manager, production machining is poised for rapid and significant expansion in 2019, and will further diversify our manufacturing capabilities, skills profile, and customer base.
“ISO certification will fuel growth of our production machining offering and is a requirement to pursue our strategic growth targets,” said Cook, who was promoted to general manager last May after joining Avantech in 2017. ISO certification will also positively impact our tool-building business. “Without question, the ISO certification will drive consistency and performance gains throughout our entire manufacturing operation,” he added.
Jay Landree, who was closely involved in the ISO certification process, remarked at how the Avantech team rallied around this strategic objective.
“We laid out our goal of attaining ISO certification as quickly as possible,” said Landree, “and accomplished this even faster than I thought was possible. Thanks to the Avantech team for pulling together and making it happen.”
