Here at Veethree we are constantly working on the business, making improvements to the infrastructure and investing in staff development to ensure we are always at the top of the industry: and in 2022 it has paid off.
ISO 9001:2015 Certification
Initially we gained our ISO 9001:2015 in 2010, but every three years we have to go through an external audit to recertify. And that is exactly what we did this year.
The ISO 9001:2015 is a recognized industry standard for a quality management system enabling organizations to:
- demonstrate their ability to provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
- enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application and process for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
It’s an important certification and therefore in preparation for renewing the ISO 9001:2015 certification a number of staff members went through a vigorous training program in April to become certified internal auditors. Some were renewing certification already held but we encouraged others to complete the certification for the first time.
Congratulations to everyone who completed and passed the process.
Their dedication to becoming certified internal auditors helped the main ISO audit run a lot more smoothly, and any issues found during the initial internal audit were mitigated prior to the start of the external audit. This no doubt was a major contribution to Veethree going through the full audit with no major or minor changes.
We pride ourselves at Veethree on the innovative work we do, and it is a great honor when this is recognized by the industry. This year we have won two awards and been nominated for a third.
For the third consecutive year we were recognized by a customer and were awarded the 2022 Clarke Fire Global Supplier Partner Award.
We have also done really well with the Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence (SMBE) Awards and received the 2021 Award at Bronze Level and we were finalists in the 2022 Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence (SMBE) Award of which we are incredibly proud.
The Sterling Council was established in 1992 and oversees the awards which are presented to “high performing, role-model organizations, both private and public, who demonstrate superior management approaches and role model results”.
In order to reach the finals Veethree met a number of stringent judging standards in several categories, including leadership, strategy, customers, measurement, analysis, knowledge management, workforce, and operations.
The Sterling awards:
- Recognize high-performing Florida-based manufacturing companies.
- Provide opportunities for organizational learning and development.
- Promote and elevate participating manufacturers and the Florida manufacturing sector.
It has been a fantastic year for Veethree, and it’s not even over yet!
We are extremely grateful for the recognition we have received and are proud of the fantastic team we have in place. Here’s to another great year ahead.
