BREA, CA--Altinex is pleased to announce the company has received ISO 9001:2008 certification after an extensive analysis of its quality systems. While Altinex was previously certified ISO 9001:2000 compliant, certification with this latest revision to the internationally renowned management system standard represents yet a further commitment to quality and reliability that customers can expect from the company and its many product offerings.
Released toward the end of 2008, ISO 9001:2008 is the fourth release of the standard. The 2008 revision represents more of a fine-tuning of the standard with clarifications to the existing ISO 9001:2000 requirements based on user experience over the last eight years. Intended for use in any organization – regardless of size, type, or product, ISO 9001:2008 provides a number of requirements that need to be fulfilled to achieve customer satisfaction through consistent products and services which meet customer expectations. This includes a requirement for continual, or planned, improvement of the Quality Management System.
With its recent ISO 9001:2008 certification, Altinex’ customers are the big winners. The certification represents affirmation by a third-party registrar that when purchasing Altinex products, the customer is assured of world-class quality and reliability. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) audit of Altinex was carried out by Southfield, MI-based Perry Johnson Registrars™, one of the world's foremost authorities in quality certification.
Chris Hart, chief operating officer at Altinex, commented on the company’s recent ISO 9001:2008 certification. “Altinex has always had a commitment to quality,” says Hart. “This is a core value that permeates every level of our company, from management to customer relations and at every step of the manufacturing process. All of us at Altinex are committed to delivering quality products with outstanding reliability and the best service and support in the industry. Our new ISO 9001:2008 certification is yet another example of this ongoing commitment. For our customers, it represents further assurance that when they purchase a product bearing the Altinex name, they are investing in a superior product backed by an organization that stands behind everything it sells.”
