Genesis Attachments, Superior, Wis., has announced that it has achieved certification to ISO 9001:2008 standards.

The ISO 9001:2008 Certification was awarded by the National Standards Foundation. This achievement is the latest milestone in Genesis’ ongoing focus to improve operations by employing the latest manufacturing, management and standardized service techniques, according to Mats Ceder, Genesis’ general manager.

“Genesis was founded on a belief that excellence in manufacturing, backed by good customer service, is at the root of any successful endeavor,” Ceder says. “This certification both underscores and formalizes that commitment. The entire Genesis team has embraced the push for ISO certification and worked hard to make it happen. In recent years, we’ve become real proponents of lean manufacturing methodology, as well as the A3 standardized approach to problem solving. This certification is a great accomplishment for everyone at Genesis and will provide direct quality- and service-based benefits for our customers.”

The ISO 9001:2008 standard is a set of quality practices that ensures the use of effective internal processes that are consistently monitored and continually improved. Genesis’ accreditation is part of a larger division-wide initiative by its parent company Paladin Brands.

“There’s no denying the value these techniques have in terms of improving and standardizing processes, reducing waste and making our company better equipped to compete in this new economy,” Ceder says. “We always strive for excellence; this is just proof that you can make a good thing even better.”
