What does it mean that some of your components are made in an ISO 9001 certified facility?

Sometimes it makes sense to externally source the best possible solution for an individual component that we need for manufacturing. ISO certification is reflected in the quality of the individual components. More specifically, this means we ensure mandrel bent pipes and flanges are produced to the strictest tolerances with highly calibrated machines by highly trained professionals. The end result is the best possible fitment.

Per ISO’s website:

ISO 9001:2015 Quality management systems — Requirements

a: “needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.”

ISO certifications play a major role behind the scenes in other areas of your life, like ISO 13485:2016 which mandates medical devices and services to ISO/TS 29001:2010 which defines the quality management system for products and supply in the petroleum industry.
