Con Mech Achieves Early Approval To New ISO 9001:2015

Con Mech Engineers Ltd have become one of the first companies in our industry receive certification to the new upgraded ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard.


The Certification applies to all three of the company’s business sectors, Ground Engagement Tools, Heat Treatment Services & Precision Engineering.


Christine Ames, Managing Director commented, “From the outset we saw the value of the new ISO standard and were determined to be an early adopter of the system. We pride ourselves on technological leadership and believe that winning early approval for this globally accepted standard, would help us stay ahead”.


Many companies will be familiar with the process based ISO 9001:2008 Quality Control system.

The new ISO 9001:2015 version moves the system to a new level. It puts leadership at the centre and requires the company’s top management to be active throughout the process. It moves on from “preventive actions”, looking at risk analysis instead and it ensures greater focus better communication and on external opportunities for the business. It also fits more closely with other related standards, such as the environmental standard ISO 14001.


“Achieving the new standard has been the result of a great deal of hard work from all the team at Con Mech and we are justifiably proud of the outcome. We are confident it will have benefits to our business and enable us to serve our customers better”, Christine continued.
