MasterCraft gains ISO certificationsPosted on
MasterCraft Boat Co. achieved ISO standard requirements for its quality, environmental and safety management systems across production and product development operations.
The company achieved global ISO 9001:2008, 14001, and OHSAS 18001 certification from Alliance International LLC.
ISO standards, a set of best practices that have been in place for more than 60 years, are implemented by more than a million companies and organizations in more than 170 countries.
“Our leadership team knows there is a strong connection between safety, quality, delivery and cost,” MasterCraft COO Shane Chittum said in a statement. “In the defining phase of our ISO charter, our team recognized the interdependencies of environment, health and safety and its effect on quality. And while it was much harder for our team to build and launch a system that crosses multiple facets of our business, at the end of the day our customers deserve first-rate quality. And you cannot deliver top-notch quality without a world-class environmental, health and safety workplace for our employees and visitors. This is a remarkable milestone for MasterCraft and we are very excited to see the roots grow in our continuous-improvement culture.”
“As a team we constantly discuss the fact that world-class quality is built on a foundation of outstanding performance in environmental, health and safety processes,” MasterCraft president and CEO Terry McNew said. “MasterCraft is committed to delivering an ever better product to consumers, and we believe having ISO certifications in all three areas demonstrates that commitment. In fact, thanks to the ISO process and certifications, we confidently offer the best warranty on the water — our five-year, bow-to-stern coverage known as MasterCare.”
