26th June 2019
• 18 organisations from around the country have been recognised for achieving certification to world class business standards at a special ceremony in Dublin
• The majority of organisations achieved certification to the international ISO standard in Quality Management Systems
• Dancor Civil Engineering Ltd, Pobal and Neurent Medical Galway among organisations honoured at today’s ceremony
18 organisations from the private, public and SME sectors gathered at NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland) offices in Dublin today for a special ceremony marking their achievement in becoming certified to world class business standards. The companies are located throughout the country and include Dancor Civil Engineering Ltd, FLI Global Ltd, Pobal, Gem Construction, Boland Steel and Whytes Concrete Ltd.
All of the businesses and bodies that achieved certification were independently audited by NSAI inspectors in order to ensure they complied with the international standards.
The certification is a recognition of the work and effort MagGrow has put in and underlines their commitment to working towards best practice.
The ISO management system approach and certification helps MagGrow to improve our performance by;
• Improving our consistency in the delivery of our product and overall service globally
• Vastly improved our planning, administration and communication process.
They join an elite group of over 4,000 organisations who are currently NSAI-certified in a variety of areas such as Quality Management Systems, Environmental Management Systems, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and Energy Management.
Brian Duffy, Quality Specialist of MagGrow said:
“For MagGrow to have achieved this certification so early in the company’s history really underlines the team’s dedication to continual improvement and the “right first time” ethos. We always strive to provide the best products and services to our Customers and being awarded this standard really showcases our commitment to doing just that.’
Speaking at the ceremony, NSAI Chief Executive Geraldine Larkin said achieving certification to world class business standards will give these organisations an advantage – both at home and abroad.
“Many of the companies gathered here today are being certified to two, three or in some cases, to four standards and I am delighted to see this type of commitment. You can see the real difference standards have made to your business and you have reaped rewards from these benefits. Not only have you gained competitive advantage – improving efficiency, reducing costs and minimising waste – your industries will continue to benefit because of your investment,” said Ms Larkin.
“At a time of increased globalization, Brexit negotiations and more and more international trade deals, it is essential for Irish industry to be as competitive as it can be. It is encouraging to see so many companies here today that are committed to working towards best practice. You are demonstrating that Ireland is one of the best places in the world to do business and that Irish and Irish based companies can compete at the highest level,” she added.
Organisations can contribute their knowledge, ideas and help build the standards of the future through becoming involved with standards development. Become a member of a volunteer committee, comment on or view a draft standard at NSAI.ie.
