Indmar is one of a few inboard engine manufacturers to achieve the ISO 9001 label.

Indmar Marine Engines said it has completed the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 audit for its corporate office and manufacturing facility in Millington, Tenn. The company called the certification “another milestone” in its history.

“The rigor and discipline required to meet the requirements of ISO 9001 demanding certification and audit process is a testament of our core values and consistent approach of placing quality at the heart of our company,” said Scott Clack, vice president of business development, in a statement.

Chuck Rowe, Indmar president, added the certification “separates Indmar in the marketplace,” since it is one of the few inboard marine engine manufacturers to achieve ISO 9001. “It’s because of our employees’ dedication that we achieved this status,” Rowe said. “This certification provides assurance to our customers and will assist our company as we continue to grow and introduce innovative technologies to the marine industry.”
