It is with great pleasure Electri-Cord Manufacturing, Inc. is able to announce that we have passed our three year ISO re-certification audit as well as successfully transitioned to the new ISO 9001:2015 standard. The leadership team, led by our Quality Manager Julie Thompson, embarked on a journey to identify gaps that would need to be addressed to meet the new requirements, develop an implementation plan, provide training and awareness, update our existing Quality Management System (QMS) and provide verification of effectiveness.
We conducted weekly ISO Transition Project lunch and learns over the last four (4) months. During this time, the entire leadership team came together, analyzed our Quality Systems and enhanced our Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to support the proposed transition. The team met weekly to go through a methodical review and preparation for the upcoming audit. All of our efforts paid off in April 2017 when our sites were audited with zero non-conformance’s identified.
A word from the auditor:
“The audit was conducted to ISO 9001:2015 and the Electri-Cord (ECM) management system documentation. The audit resulted in zero nonconformance. ECM has been registered to ISO 9001 for over 20 years. Their commitment to improving their management system was obvious throughout the audit. They have implemented an excellent risk assessment process, comprehensive internal audit process and management review process. Their commitment and enthusiasm from the President to floor personnel was evident throughout the audit.”
