News Release 1/5/2017
Marion Body Works is pleased to announce another successful completion of our ISO 9001:2008 annual surveillance audit, performed by NQA.
Marion Body Works has been undergoing external ISO audits since first certified in 2012. These audits are required to maintain our ISO 9001:2008 status. Similar audits are performed monthly by teams of internal auditors, who focus on processes and procedures, one area at a time.
Ryan Falke, Director of Quality and Continuous Improvement at Marion Body Works said, “These internal audits give us a monthly snapshot allowing us to continuously improve our quality management system, an essential function of our business, providing quality product and service to our customers. These audits are a key part to our quality system and a successful annual surveillance audit.”
The overall objective of the surveillance audit is to ensure that our processes continue to be effective for our company. This is all in effort to be a more efficient organization that better serves our customers and delivers quality products and services.
Marion Body Works strives to improve the results of its annual surveillance audits and has done so by reducing the amount of minor non-conformities found this year in comparison to last. Quality has been a keystone of our company since it’s inception in 1905. Continuous improvement is in the culture and that attitude is reflected in our product every day.
