ISO 9001:2015 is globally regarded as the most comprehensive body of standards on quality management systems and practices. It was established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an organization of national standards institutes of over 170 countries and the foremost authority on quality standards and is designed to provide companies with a set of principles that ensure a systematic approach to achieving customer satisfaction.
In 2012 Stafford received our initial certification, and have continued to meet the rigorous requirements of the standard and are now certified to the latest version. Although we have always been dedicated to maintaining the highest quality standards, our ISO certification provides customers with additional assurance that the standards to which we hold ourselves are among the most stringent in the world.
Our certification validates the company’s commitment to our customers and dedication to taking a long-term approach to quality and service. From the very first shaft collars we manufactured in 1975, we have built quality and integrity into everything we do. This business approach means continually meeting and exceeding customer expectations. It not only fosters lasting relationships with established accounts, but introduces new customers through referrals and a reputation for providing the best quality shaft collars, rigid couplings and custom mechanical components.
A sometimes overlooked aspect of ISO 9001:2015 is the documentation of continual improvement initiatives. It is your guarantee that we are always striving to perfect our products and processes.
These quality standards, combined with lean manufacturing efforts such as cell-based processes, allow us to provide customers with the best value in the industry.
