Bodine Electric Co., a Northfield, Ill.-based manufacturer of small gearmotors, motors and motor-speed controls, recently attained ISO 9001:2008 certification.
Meeting the requirements of the internationally recognized quality-management standard "is the latest milestone in Bodine Electric's long-term commitment to continuous improvement," the company said in a news release.
"Certification covers all aspects of the company's management system, [including] product realization, design and development, sales, purchasing, production and customer service," the company explained in a news release.
"The certified management system ensures measurable, repeatable and consistent results."
Det Norske Veritas, an Oslo, Norway-based provider of risk-management services, certified Bodine Electric's quality-management system, the company noted.
"Our goal has always been to do things right the first time, conform to all known requirements, and provide on-time, defect-free products," said John Bodine, president and CEO of Bodine Electric.
"We had most of the pieces in place, and our history has shown that we've accomplished that goal in the past. However, in today's world, we need to continuously evaluate our systems, and going through the certification process has really helped us focus our management capabilities in this area."
