Bollinger Shipyards has achieved continued registration to ISO 9001 for another three years without interruption since 1996.
The scope of Bollinger's certification, issued through Denver-based ISO 9001 management certification firm, Platinum Registration Inc., includes the design, manufacture, repair and logistical support of marine vessels and their components, as well as in shop and field service repair of AC and DC motors and generators.
“This is an important milestone for Bollinger Shipyards,” said Ben Bordelon, Bollinger president and CEO. “It’s a rigorous process to become ISO 9001 certified. Our staff worked very hard with Platinum Registration’s auditors to demonstrate that we meet the requirements of the Standard. Not only does that make us feel confident that we’re the most efficient that we can be, it assures our customers that we have a completely transparent and robust management system. And that means we have reliable, repeatable, continuously improving business processes so that they are receiving the best value for their money.”
Bordelon said that implementing management procedures in accordance with the high standards of ISO 9001:2008 allows Bollinger to further solidify its position as a worldwide leader in the industry and give its customers the confidence that they’ve partnered with one of the best in the business.
