ISO 9001 Certification: Getting it Right The First Time

 

It’s hard to trust anyone based on “their word” nowadays. But at General Kinematics there’s a third-party certification that says you don’t have to take our word for it.

 

General Kinematics has been ISO 9001:2008 certified since 2002. What does this mean for a company working with GK? ISO Certification means that we put a lot of effort into our process to ensure that it goes smoothly for our customers as well as our employees. Many companies have different standards. An ISO Certification gives our customers trusted proof that General Kinematics meets all of the basic standards, in some cases eliminating hundreds of pages of paperwork that can hold up the process of implementing new equipment.

GK is focused on continuous improvement and we believe that the ISO process is a great way to structure that improvement across the company and ensure that it is beneficial for our customers. Each and every day at General Kinematics someone is working on a new idea or process and it is of utmost importance that this new innovation is safe and beneficial to our customers.

 

The international quality standards don’t stop at GK. We review each vendor we work with who has an ISO Certification or we audit them ourselves to ensure that our customers are receiving the highest quality product from spring to structure.

 

When looking for a company to trust, count on General Kinematics for quality, service, and dependability.
