Bellingham plants gain ISO certification


Three Bellingham Marine plants recently achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification, the company announced.

The three newly certified plants are Bellingham's Northeast plant in York, Pa., Bellingham's Southeast plant in Jacksonville, Fla., and Bellingham's drystack operations in Callahan, Fla.

"It's been a tremendous team effort and the ISO representative indicated that he was impressed by the enthusiasm for and acceptance of the program by all the employees at each division," executive vice president Phil Greenman said in a statement.

"We now have six ISO-certified plants and one PCI-certified plant," he added. "This is a great accomplishment and is yet another example of our commitment to ensuring a quality product to our customers every time."

The ISO 9001:2008 is an international standard for quality management, quality assurance, and continuous improvement. This standard refers to how an organization's processes are designed and managed to transform inputs or services designed to meet the customer's objectives.
