Geometrica recently achieved the latest ISO 9001:2015 certification for the design, manufacturing and installation of reticular structures and domes. The company previously earned certification under ISO 9001:2008 and has been audited and registered annually by BSI since 2008.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental, organization that promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards. Specifically, the ISO 9001:2015 standard is an international recognition given to organizations that implement a rigorous and effective quality management system (QMS).
As the only pre-fabricated dome manufacturer with company-wide ISO9001:2015 certification, we can ensure we are able to meet the needs of our customers by delivering an excellent level of customer service, implementing an effective quality management system and delivering an exceptional standard of goods and services.
“We are excited to earn certification to ISO 9001:2015 and feel it provides additional assurance to our customers that we are focused on customer satisfaction and continuous improvement,” said Francisco Castaño, CEO, Geometrica. “The new standard’s risk-based thinking has been part of Geometrica’s QMS for over a decade. It is nice to now have certified recognition of this practice with the 2015 version of the standard.”
For any company, the road to certification requires time and commitment. Geometrica pioneered using a Wiki to implement a quality management system . Our documentation and procedures were already compliant with ISO 9001:2008, and for years, Geometrica’s QMS has been, and is, improving continuously. The changes to make explicit our compliance with the new standard were done as an incremental part of this continual improvement process over several months.
Rocío Rojas, Client Manager, BSI said, “Geometrica’s system has shown resilience through the different audit cycles, through different improvement projects and the implementation of new technology and software.”
Geometrica makes excellence a habit as demonstrated by our additional accreditations: BS OHSAS 18001, ISO 3834 and EN 1090. Following our welding fabricator audit for ISO 3834, here’s a short video clip (16 secs) of TWI’s John Brampton reviewing the results with our staff (Francisco Castaño and Dr. Raul del Toro are seated to his right):
We are hugely proud of this achievement and would like to thank the entire team at Geometrica and BSI for their involvement. We couldn’t have done it without you!
