"Many companies, especially tier-1 consumer electronics firms, demand and require ISO certification in order to be established as a supplier to them. Our entire team worked diligently and successfully in meeting the challenge of getting the quality management system established, implemented and eventually certified. Customers worldwide know and understand what achievement of this certification means in terms of improved quality and service, on-time deliveries, positive customer attitude and fewer product returns and complaints. Vuzix takes great pride in its commitment to quality and customer satisfaction and this certification certainly supports our goal to provide the highest value to our employees, partners, and customers."
