Publish date:

Sea-Fire Marine, which makes fire detection and suppression systems, has recertified to ISO 9001:2015 standards. This follows the company relocating its North American corporate headquarters to a 30,000-square-foot facility in Baltimore.

The new standard retains the core values of a quality management system outlined in ISO 9001:2008 and adds a focus on risk assessment. A certified audit confirmed Sea-Fire’s upgrade.

“ISO certification provides our customers the assurance that Sea-Fire is focused on performing at the highest levels of quality and efficiency,” said Ernie Ellis, Sea-Fire Marine president, in a statement. “It recognizes our investment in our products and solidifies our dedication to protecting people and property at sea.”
