ISO 9001:2015 – PASSED!
As 2022 closes out, we are delighted to end the year on a high note. We are pleased to announce that we have now passed Stage 2 of the ISO 9001:2015 standard audit with ZERO findings, after completing Stage 1 earlier in the year. This means that 3DPRINTUK operates at the highest levels for quality assurance and validation of 3D printed parts for our clients on a daily basis, in full compliance with the ISO 9001 standard.
Nick Allen, our CEO, commented:
“Achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification is a major milestone. I am so proud of the whole team, and flattered to get the feedback from the auditor, who commented that the 3DPRINTUK Quality Management System (QMS) was ‘one of the best QMS I’ve ever seen.’”
This is a real testament to the in-house knowledge and expertise of the whole 3DPRINTUK team, as the QMS was built in-house and tailored to the operations of the company and the needs of its clients and guarantees full integration of pre-existing processes.
Allen continued: “This accreditation does not change anything in our day-to-day operations at 3DPRINTUK because quality has always been at the heart of what we do. But it does mean that our customers have an important guarantee about the quality of their parts. From 2023 ALL orders will be officially processed against the ISO 9001:2015 standard — even though that has been happening in practice for a long time, already.”
Alessandro Catania, Quality and Compliance Manager at 3DPRINTUK further stated: “It is really gratifying after going through the extensive ISO 9001:2015 process to be notified that there are zero findings. Quality and quality assurance are a central feature of all of the manufacturing and production services that we offer. And now we can prove it. By achieving ISO 9001 certification, we can demonstrate that all of our systems, processes and procedures meet the high demands that this certification requires for all of our 3D printed parts.”
ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard, and a key benchmark for managing quality. It puts customer satisfaction at the core of operations, drives continuous improvement and affords end-to-end manufacturing traceability.
3DPRINTUK supplies 3D printed parts for low volume, on-demand batch production to the highest quality standards for a wide range of industrial sectors.
Accreditation of the ISO 9001 standard is being awarded by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
Looking ahead to 2023, we will continue with our plans to further grow our service offering in a number of ways. Following a recent customer survey feedback, watch out for new additions and product launches early in the new year.
