Bellingham Marine is proud to be an ISO registered company with a strong foundation that benefits the health of our company as well as that of our customers.
In a recent focus group, participants were asked how they would choose between similarly capable marina companies when it came to purchasing a new dock system. What would be most important to you? For the participants, quality was the number one determiner followed by value.
Although the group shared a number of strategies they would use to determine the level of quality, some insight into a company’s commitment to quality can gained by seeing if they are quality certified.
For those who want the best value and highest level of quality from their suppliers, an ISO Registered Manufacturer is a good place to start. The program’s independent registrar audit can be a key discriminator of a company’s commitment to quality and action.
ISO stands for the International Standards Organization; there is no other organization with the exception of the Precast Institute that offers the same level of quality assurance for the end user. The organization’s quality management system (ISO 9001), is the only Q.C. program that focuses on the processes of the entire company and ultimately the customer. In contrast, the emphasis with other quality programs is placed solely on the product.
