SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- July 17, 2012 -- Sencore, a leading provider of signal quality and video delivery solutions, today announced that its quality management system (QMS) has passed a surveillance audit to reconfirm its compliance with the ISO 9001:2008 standard. The three-and-a-half-day audit resulted in the addition of Sencore's Denver office and contract manufacturing facilities to the ISO 9001:2008 certification.
"Completion of this ISO 9001:2008 surveillance audit is the latest evidence of our commitment to continuous improvement of our quality processes so we can better serve our customers," said Tim Graham, director of quality, Sencore. "Our certification reflects the passion of our employees and our company for delivering the best possible service and most innovative products."
ISO 9001:2008 is an internationally recognized standard for quality management that applies to all types of business sectors and activities. Annual audits are required for maintaining the ISO 9001:2008 certification, which is based on eight quality-management principles to help improve organizational performance -- customer focus, leadership, involvement of people, process approach, system approach to management, continual improvement, fact-based decision-making, and mutually beneficial supplier relationships. Sencore's surveillance audit was conducted by Intertek.
"Sencore should be commended for its continual compliance with ISO 9001:2008, which reflects the company's ongoing dedication to a QMS that will continue to result in operational improvements and efficiencies," said Bill Vance, QMS lead auditor for Intertek's Business Assurance group. "This year's audit highlighted a mature and knowledgeable workforce, and strong support of the QMS from Sencore's top management. There is also strong evidence that Sencore's ongoing internal audits are working in the company's favor."
