ISO 9001 certified

AMF Technologies is ISO 9001 Certified

We are pleased to announce that AMF Technologies is ISO 9001 certified.  AMF has earned the coveted ISO 9001:2015 re-certification for its quality management system.

ISO 9001:2015 is the international benchmark for quality management.  Most companies prefer their vendors to have quality certifications and many companies in industries such as biotech, medical, and pharmaceutical, require it.

The standard is based on quality management principles, including intense customer focus, senior-level management involvement, a process approach, and continuous improvement.

Companies use the standard to validate their ability to consistently provide precise and reliable products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements and to establish a culture of continuous improvement.

The standard embeds quality throughout the business, ensures each employee understands how their actions affect customer experience, and documents processes that are continually reviewed to improve customer satisfaction.  It is based on the plan-do-check-act methodology and takes a process-driven approach by verifying actions from beginning to end.

To achieve certification, an independent agency performs several evaluations and a rigorous and comprehensive company-wide quality system audit.

For any company, the pathway to certification requires commitment and time. AMF started laying the groundwork in April 2021. The company hired the independent firm Verisys Registrars to perform the auditing of the ISO 9001:2015 management standards and processes.

A Verisys Registrars certified auditor completed AMF’s final inspection on April 8, 2022. The assigned auditor evaluated all departments to verify that processes are in place and are understood throughout the organization. The audit results substantiate that AMF’s quality and efficiency standards apply to all the company’s metal finishing procedures and services. Continued recertification requires AMF staff to perform regular internal audits, conduct meetings, and document continuous process improvement for future audits.

“The effort our team put into achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification conveys to our customers how effectively we operate our business,” said Tom O’Mara, CEO of AMF Technologies. “It also demonstrates our commitment to service and quality.”

The company is now in the process of pursuing the AS9100 certification, the international Quality Management System standard specifically for the Aviation, Space and Defense (AS&D) industry.
