Direct Air gains ISO 9001 certificationMember News
Our continued commitment to putting the customer first, has resulted in Direct Air recently becoming ISO 9001 certified.
ISO 9001 is recognised worldwide as the international benchmark for quality within an organisation.
By achieving our ISO 9001 certification, Direct Air & Pipework are able to demonstrate to customers and suppliers that the systems we have in place meet the high standards set out by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
To gain the ISO 9001 certification, we had to demonstrate our dedication and commitment to meeting our customers needs, operating efficient management processes and delivering consistent, good quality products and services.
Each year, an external Audit is carried out by a third party to ensure our systems are maintained and any non-conformances are noted for correction.
Managing Director of Direct Air, Allan Dolby, said:
Achieving ISO9001 I am sure will prove invaluable to Direct Airs day to day business operation. Our ISO 9001 certification will give companies confidence that we are working to standards and procedures that will provide them with a high standard of customer service.
