When choosing a supplier, it’s important to find one that will be reliable and efficient, but that’s not all you need to consider. Whether you’re looking to place flexible outsourced manufacturing, resourcing made-to-print parts or projects, or looking to invest in an inventory management program, such as a vendor managed inventory (VMI) program, it’s important to know that the supplier has a verifiable process for meeting your requirements. ISO certification should rank highly on your list, as this provides added assurance that your supplier is operating to verifiable standards. In the manufacturing industry, you’ll want to find a supplier with an ISO 9001:2008 certification (soon to be 9001:2015), which focuses on quality management. If you work with an ISO-certified supplier you can rest easy knowing they have a solid quality management system in place.
A company willing to invest the time and effort into maintaining its ISO certification is demonstrating its commitment to a quality management system and offering the best services possible in line with international standards. This also means that a supplier’s compliance will align with that of parts manufacturers around the world, further increasing the odds that you will receive nothing but high-quality products and services.
A company with an ISO 9001 certification cares that its production and service processes run smoothly and is constantly improving on the processes already in place. As a consumer, this certification gives you peace of mind that the company is not only consistently reliable in their production process, but is actively improving to create a better experience for you.
