ProPhotonix’s Ireland subsidiary achieves ISO9001:2015 certification
ProPhotonix Ltd of Salem, NH, USA, a designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules for OEMs and medical equipment companies (as well as a distributor of laser diodes for Ushio, Osram, QSI, Panasonic and Sony), says that its Ireland subsidiary has transitioned from ISO9001:2008 to ISO9001:2015 certification. ProPhotonix (Irl) Ltd has been continuously certified to the ISO9001 standard since 1999.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 is the most recent version of the ISO9001 standard that measures the effectiveness of a company’s quality management system and performance, with a focus on organization-wide risk-based thinking. The ISO process assists companies in developing a management system that aligns their quality strategy with its business strategy.
The new certification “demonstrates additional assurance to our customers that we are focused on continuous improvement and achieving excellence in our customer service and delivery,” says president & CEO Tim Losik. “The ISO 9001:2015 standard demands a higher degree of leadership commitment than the previous standards,” he adds. “We are dedicated to constant improvement and development and maintaining our ISO 9001 accreditation, ensuring we have the processes and systems in place for this. Our UK subsidiary continues to be certified to ISO9001:2008, with transition to ISO9001:2015 expected to take place during the first half of 2018.”
