THREE BELLINGHAM PLANTS RECEIVE ISO CERTIFICATION
January 18, 2010
It is with great pride that we announce that three additional Bellingham Marine plants have achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification. The three newly certified plants include Bellingham’s NE plant in York, Pennsylvania; Bellingham’s SE plant in Jacksonville, FL; and Bellingham’s Drystack operations in Callahan, FL.
“It’s been a tremendous team effort and the ISO representative indicated that he was impressed by the enthusiasm for and acceptance of the program by all the employees at each division,” said Phil Greenman, Executive Vice President of Bellingham Marine. “We now have six ISO certified plants and one PCI certified plant. This is a great accomplishment and is yet another example of our commitment to ensuring a quality product to our customers every time.”
The ISO certification is not only a way for developers and marina owners to identify sources of added value but provides third party verification. Like ISO, the PCI accreditation process requires an in-depth quality assurance plan and thorough inspections of the plant and its operations.
“We’ll continue to strive for improvement by getting all plants certified,” said Greenman. “Certifying more than a single plant reassures our customers that no matter where in the world their project is the same quality and level of service will be delivered.” All BMI’s U.S plants are quality accredited as well as its plants in Australia and New Zealand.
The ISO 9001:2008 is an international standard for quality management, quality assurance, and continuous improvement. This standard refers to how an organization’s processes are designed and managed to transform inputs or services designed to meet the customer’s objectives.
Bellingham Marine’s NE division serves the eastern regions of the United States and the SE division covers the southeast region including the Gulf States, as wells as the Caribbean and South America. All the company’s drystack work done worldwide with the exception of Australasia, which is covered by Bellingham Marine Australia, is handled out of BMI’s Callahan plant.
As the world’s leading marina design/build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat saltwater systems, Unideck freshwater systems and Unistack dry storage systems for marinas worldwide.
