Precision Dynamics Corporation Receives ISO Certification
SAN FERNANDO, CA--(Marketwire - May 27, 2010) - Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), the global leader in identification solutions for Healthcare and Leisure & Entertainment markets, has been awarded the coveted ISO 9001:2008 certification for upholding the highest quality standards across its breadth of products and services. This is the 15th consecutive year that PDC has maintained ISO (International Organization for Standards) certification, an international standard of measuring organizations' management and operational controls, focusing on quality improvement and customer satisfaction.
Robert Holmes, Director of Global Regulatory Affairs for PDC, said, "The ISO 9001:2008 certification exemplifies PDC's long standing commitment to quality through our Quality Management System, which is an integral part of our business operations. The achievement reiterates the commitment and teamwork of our employees to achieve world-class excellence in products, processes, and services."
Gary Hutchinson, President and CEO for PDC, said, "PDC is pleased to receive ISO Certification as part of our on-going efforts to build the highest quality infrastructure necessary to support our customers' and partners' needs. The certification highlights the superior value of PDC's products and services, and further differentiates PDC from other companies in the industries we serve."
The ISO application process requires considerable time and preparation, culminating in a rigorous review by an independent notified body. KEMA, a leading international ISO registrar, awarded PDC the ISO 9001:2008 certificate of registration.
"Many companies talk about quality," said Holmes, "but it's uncommon for every company to make the kind of investments in people and procedures that PDC does to ensure an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and business excellence."
"Thousands of hours of scrupulous research and testing go into every product PDC produces for maximum durability, reliability, and comfort. We also strive to understand what our customers need to be successful through close and consistent interaction, including vehicles such as our Customer Council and Customer Survey programs. Quality is something we take very seriously at PDC."
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards. It consists of a network of the national standards institutes of 161 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system. ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the public and private sectors. Therefore, ISO enables a consensus to be reached on solutions that meet both the requirements of business and the broader needs of society.
