ISO 9001:2008 certification
As the self-storage industry grew, we saw demand for high-quality self-storage systems increase. As a progressive company we always looked for ways to improve our products and services while maintaining our competitiveness.
We then felt it was time to raise the bar. In 2008 we undertook the ISO 9001:2008 certification process as part of our on-going quality management programme. This quality assurance assured we would closely monitor our processes and procedures complying with all audit and quality control requirements to constantly produce and deliver the highest quality self-storage products and services every time.
When we started the ISO 9001:2008 certification process, we had already invested heavily in our London factory, implementing new machinery and systems to improve the quality of our products and services since operations began in Europe in 1996.
We were delighted when Steel Storage Europe was awarded the ISO 9001:2008 certification for the design, manufacture, supply and installation of self-storage solutions by the British Accreditation Bureau (BAB) in March 2009. To our knowledge, we were the first global company in the industry (outside of the USA) to get this certification.
The consultant from BAB who worked with us to document our procedures and quality systems said the following about working with us: “We were highly impressed by the professional and dedicated approach taken by Steel Storage Europe in undertaking the ISO certification process. It was clear from day one that this was taken very seriously by the entire company and we were delighted to award the Steel Storage team with this prestigious standard.”
After successfully implementing the ISO 9001:2008 certification quality processes in Europe, it was time to move our on-going quality management programme on. We turned our focus to Asia and our factory in Singapore.
Since starting operations in Singapore in 2003, Steel Storage Asia had embraced the quality commitment demanded by the entire organisation and was ready to put the company’s investment to the test.
In Singapore we worked with DAS Certification Ltd to achieve our ISO 9001:2008 certification goals. And in January 2010, they awarded us the ISO 9001:2008 certification for the following scope of operation: design, fabricate and construction of self-storage facilities.
Being awarded this accolade in both factories has been a significant milestone in our quality assurance programme. Jon Perrins, Executive Chairman at Steel Storage Holdings, had the following to say about achieving the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard: “Some people look at ISO as just a badge but at Steel Storage we are proud that we have done this properly and used it to improve quality across our whole organisation.”
