HOUSTON, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: CUI) wholly-owned subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems North America (OGSNA), is proud to announce that certification audits on its headquarters and manufacturing center in Houston, TX have been successfully completed and that the company was awarded the prestigious ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Certification on February 13th, 2017.
Extensive audits of OGSNA were carried out earlier this year by the international independent and renowned certification body, National Quality Assurance, USA (Global Certification Body | NQA). ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It is the most widely used QMS standard in the world, with over 1.1 million certificates issued to organizations in 178 countries. OGSNA's compliance to ISO 9001:2008 also positions the company for future scopes to meet other related standards that are based on ISO 9001.
"We are delighted to obtain our ISO certification," said Nicholas Clough, OGSNA's president & chief sales officer. "The ISO 9001:2008 certificate is the model for quality assurance and the fact that our company has been certified so soon after its formation proves beyond any doubt that we focus on quality management and have a commitment to the continuous improvement of our quality processes. Our ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System covers all main processes within the company, ensuring that they are conducted under controlled conditions."
Christi Friedrichs, Director of Business Development at NQA, offered congratulations to OGSNA, specifically noting "The demands of designing, manufacturing, and supplying sampling and analysis equipment, as well as system and process instrumentation, are simultaneously critical and complex. Clearly, OGSNA is demonstrating, through objective and measurable standards, the ability to manage these demands while balancing the flexibility required for continuous improvements in this environment. OGSNA's successful achievement of meeting the rigorous demands of ISO 9001:2008 in this environment is truly impressive and shows unequivocal evidence of the company's commitment to the highest level of quality for its customers. NQA congratulates OGSNA on this impressive accomplishment."
Concluded Mr. Clough, "The ISO 9001:2008 certificate is only awarded to companies that can demonstrate their ability to work to a standard that enables them to consistently provide products and services that meet or exceed customer and applicable requirements – placing customer satisfaction as a key component of those requirements – which describes exactly OGSNA's focus on product development and customer service."
