McLanahan Corp.’s location in Hollidaysburg, Pa., has received certification in the ISO 9001:2008 Management System for the design, manufacture and service of equipment for the mineral, aggregate, agricultural and industrial industries. The official registration audit was completed by SRI Quality System Registrar out of Pittsburgh, Pa., in late October 2013, and the company received its official certification in December.
The success of the registration evaluation was ultimately the result of the commitment McLanahan employees have to producing a quality product and providing customer satisfaction. “We are proud of the effort our employees have put in to helping McLanahan achieve its ISO certification,” said Sean McLanahan, executive vice president and CAO. “Not only does it help improve our process internally, but it proves to our customers that we are dedicated to providing them with the highest quality products and services.” ISO 9001:2008 is a process-based certification recognizing organizations that can link business objectives with operating effectiveness. To receive this certification, McLanahan demonstrated effective implementation of documentation and records management; top management commitment to customers; establishment of clear policies; good planning and implementation; excellent resource management; and efficient process control, measurement and analysis. McLanahan has also established continual improvement efforts. McLanahan plans to continue its ISO certification efforts, by implementing similar process and procedures at its other locations.
