On March 2nd Stackright gained the ISO 9001 : 2015 from the accreditation body ISOQAR.
This was made possible by Simon Greenwood’s Stirling work and the rest of the team buying in to Simon’s vision.
This is just the first step towards Stackright’s goal of having an ISO integrated management system by autumn 2018.
The next accreditation to undertake is ISO 14001 which the team will be aiming for by June/July. Work is underway to achieve the accreditation.
The final ISO accreditation will be 45001 which is replacing OHSAS 18001.
Once the three ISO standards are obtained, it will establish Stackright as a manufacturer with an IMS who can compete in all public/private tender processes.
A monumental team effort involving every employee and lead by Simon Greenwood has seen Stackright awarded with this hugely beneficial ISO9001:2015 Certification.
This achievement has been a year in the making and with the help of John Jones and all the Stackright staff, Simon has secured our accreditation that will benefit the company and its employees and customers long into the future.
For those who wish to know how important this is and what benefits this will bring to Stackright the main point are detailed below.
ISO 9001 : 2015 is a standard of requirements against which our Quality Management System can be evaluated.
