HydroHoist Marine Group said it recently made the transition to a more rigorous set of standards in order to join Rotek, the parent company’s plastics division, and HyPower, the company’s power pedestal division, in ISO 9001:2008 certification.
By making this move, HydroHoist said it became the first boatlift company to comply with ISO standards, which complements its position as the first— and remains the only — hydropneumatic boat lift company to maintain this standard.
“I am proud that HydroHoist Marine Group Inc. is certified ISO 9001:2008,” HydroHoist CEO Mick Webber said in a statement. “And it’s quite an accomplishment to be certified in all divisions of our company.”
The International Organization for Standards is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. ISO standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of the highest quality. For businesses, they reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. The standards also allow companies access to new markets because of the standardization across industries.
ISO 9001:2008 requires the company to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. This allows for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to these strict standards for customer satisfaction.
