Ocean Optics Certified ISO 9001:2008
Dunedin, FL (July 31, 2009) –Ocean Optics, the industry leader in miniature photonics, has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification applicable to the design and manufacture of electro-optical equipment.
The company’s quality management system was audited by National Quality Assurance, U.S.A. and found to be in compliance with the provisions of the ISO 9001:2008 standards. ISO 9001:2008 certification ensures that a company has met a comprehensive set of standards dictated by the International Standards Organization (ISO) covering all aspects of the business: design, development, sales, manufacturing, and service.
The audit evaluated Ocean Optics’ procedures for quality assurance, production, continuous improvement, performance to customer expectation, internal audits, contract review and purchasing. The audit preparation was a company-wide initiative led by Donna Salamida, ISO Implementation Manager.
“Everyone at Ocean Optics had contributions to make-both great and small,” said Salamida. “The team work paid off and our customers will be the first to benefit.”
“While we’ve always made the quality of our products and meeting customer expectations a priority, we welcomed the opportunity that certification presented to benchmark our processes versus known industry best practice. This caused us to improve and upgrade many aspects of our business in handling all aspects of the customer,” said Ocean Optics President Rob Randelman “Continuously improving not only the product offering, but the entire customer experience is one key to driving lasting sustainable growth for our company. Earning the ISO 9001:2008 certification assures our customers of the commitment we have to serving them well.”
