B&W Facility Receives ISO 9001:2015 Certification
May 14, 2019
B&W’s Lancaster, Ohio, facility recently received its ISO 9001:2015 certificate. This certificate is an internationally recognized quality management system (QMS) standard for organizations that consistently provide products and services that meet the needs of their customers and regulatory requirements.
The Lancaster facility, which manufactures and services boiler cleaning technologies such as Diamond Power® sootblowers and related equipment, already had a well-established QMS based on the requirements of ISO 9001, CSA and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Obtaining this certification further enhances the facility’s continuous improvement initiatives, demonstrates compliance to our customers, and will better position the facility to respond to the market’s evolving product requirements.
This was an extensive undertaking with a very short timeline for the Lancaster team, which worked in cooperation with B&W’s Global Quality group. A dedicated team of employees established project schedules, scope, and conducted weekly meetings to ensure all actions were completed on time.
The process began in December when a certification audit was conducted at the Lancaster facility by certification body TÜV SÜD America, Inc. The facility was recommended for certification with zero non-conformities to ISO 9001:2015 standards noted.
