Golden Boat Lifts said it received ISO 9001:2008 certification.

The Florida-based company said the certification is a series of international quality standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization for implementation in management and operations within an organization to increase productivity, efficiency and reliability.

The company said it knows of no other boat lift manufacturer that has received the certification.

“We wanted to set ourselves apart from other companies in our industry,” president and CEO Bill Golden said in a statement. “To have received this certification now means we are working hard to create a higher standard of quality control and customer satisfaction in the boat lift industry.”

The company said it has more than 30 years of experience making a full range of lift systems in sizes ranging from 1,500 to 240,000 pounds.
