AFEX Fire Suppression Systems has been awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification for its Quality Management System (QMS) by NSF International Strategic Relations, it said.
The ISO 9000 family is the world’s most best-known quality management standard, according to AFEX. “ISO 9001:2015 is built on various quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement,” the company explained. “Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services.”
AFEX calls itself a leader in heavy equipment fire protection, supplying suppression and protection systems to mines across the globe.
The award, which occurred on January 31, followed a rigorous process and a collaborative effort throughout the entire AFEX organisation, the company said. “It reaffirms our commitment to quality and exemplifies our focus on continuous improvement.”
Scott Matthews, Quality Manager at AFEX, said: “We’ve always had a commitment to quality, so our certification to ISO 9001 further demonstrates AFEX’s company values; do it right. Do it safe. Do it better.”
