Recently on Ferret.com.au, we discussed the benefits to business of adopting an SAI Global quality management system that includes ISO 9001:2008 certification.
The latest company to secure this certification through SAI Global and enhance its commitment to national and global standards of quality assurance is leading air springs and associated pneumatic technology supplier Air Springs Supply.
Commenting on the announcement, Air Springs Supply General Manager Simon Agar said that "attainment of this certification is a significant further advance in the ongoing commitment to quality on which Air Springs supply has built its reputation as an industry leader for more than 30 years, operating nationally through a well established network of respected distributors."
Air Springs Quality Control Manager Mr Ben Vocalan will handle the ongoing implementation of quality processes related to the certification.
He noted that the company places a high priority on continuously reinforcing the confidence of its customers in doing business with an organisation that can consistently meet or exceed their needs on time.
"Successfully completing the rigorous process required for ISO 9001 certification is a clear sign that we are committed to superior product quality and customer satisfaction," he added.
ISO 9001 is the world’s most recognised business management standard, and demonstrates to customers that the organisation involved can consistently provide products or services that meet the requirements of customers, and of any applicable regulations relating to them.
Importantly, this provides customers with an assurance that global standards of consistency, quality and supply of products are maintained. For Air Springs, this includes Firestone air springs and Firestone Airstroke and Airmount actuators, for which the company is the exclusive national distributor.
Airstroke and Airmount actuators are widely used in a variety of industrial applications such as:
- food and beverage processing
- mineral processing
- metal fabrication
- forming; and
