Younicos Achieves ISO 9001 Certification

One of the First Companies in the Energy Storage Industry to Reach This Level of Standardized Excellence

AUSTIN, TX and BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - Younicos, a global leader in intelligent grid-scale energy storage solutions, is pleased to announce that it has received ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems certification from the international certification body Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance Ltd (LRQA). The award certifies all aspects of the company's business, with specific procedures put in place to evaluate and improve key processes, ensuring that customers continue to receive outstanding service and support.

"Achieving ISO certification underscores our dedication to excellence, based on the deployment of over 20 energy storage projects and the implementation processes we practice from system design to delivery," said James P. McDougall, CEO of Younicos. "It recognizes that Younicos has a process management system in place that meets the stringent ISO standards, and that our exacting data-driven operational methods are of the highest order. It further demonstrates a commitment to superior management policies and continuous quality improvement."

"Grid-level energy storage is a relatively new and fast-moving industry and it's critical to have quality standards that are globally recognized," continued McDougall. "With new storage technologies and systems being regularly introduced to a growing market, we feel that achieving and maintaining a benchmark level of quality in process, products and service will differentiate Younicos from its competitors."

The ISO 9001 requirements are among the most rigid of the over 19,500 International Standards published by the organization. They serve as a model for quality assurance in all facets of a company's business, including project design, development, production, implementation and service.
