13 January 2017

Custom cable manufacturer, Stonewall Cable, earns ISO 9001:2015 certification with no findings during their recent audit. 

Rumney, New Hampshire – DECEMBER 05, 2016 Stonewall Cable is excited to announce it has been awarded the distinction of ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System Certification by NQA (Acton, MA). After months of preparation, training sessions and internal audits, Stonewall has successfully transitioned from the ISO 9001:2008 standard to the ISO 9001:2015 standard.

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It is the most widely used QMS standard in the world, with over 1.1 million certificates issued to organizations in 178 countries. ISO 9001 provides a framework and set of principles that ensure a common-sense approach to the management of your organization to consistently satisfy customers and other stakeholders. In simple terms, it provides the basis for effective processes and effective people to deliver an effective product or service time after time.

NQA, the global ISO registrar that provided Stonewall Cable’s certification, conveyed congratulatory sentiments. Christi Friedrichs, Director of Business Development for NQA specifically noted “Stonewall Cable’s successful achievement of ISO 9001:2015 without any major, or even minor, findings is truly impressive and shows unequivocal evidence of the company’s commitment to the highest level of quality for its cable customers.

Clearly, Stonewall is demonstrating, through objective and measurable standards, the ability to manage continuous cable product demands while balancing the flexibility required for continuous improvements. Stonewall’s customers can feel rest-assured of their commitment to ensure its products and services meet the rigorous demands of ISO 9001:2015.”

The dedication and rigorous attention to detail by Stonewall's Quality Assurance Manager and the audit team was instrumental in smoothly introducing and implementing process and procedure changes to the framework and properly transitioning the entire organization to adhere to the standard principles. Participation and conformity among employees was overwhelming, and the staff worked diligently to adhere any modifications and are committed to the QMS principles.

Being ISO 9001:2015 certified assures Stonewall's customers that they can expect outstanding consistency, high quality products, and a high level of customer satisfaction. For over 30 years, Stonewall's dedication to quality, continual improvement and customer satisfaction has resulted in an exceptional reputation for excellence within the government and industry sectors. Being awarded the distinction of the ISO 9001:2015 standard is a testament to Stonewall's mission, commitment to quality, and quality policy. A sound QMS such as ISO 9001 allows Stonewall to thrive as a cable manufacturer, selling the highest quality cables to government and industry.

Complying with ISO 9001:2015 also enables the opportunity for continual improvement and a work environment where leaders have a hands-on approach and engage employees. The seven quality management principles are: customer focus, leadership, engaging the people, process approach, improvement, evidence-based decision making, and relationship management.
