At its core, a quality management system (QMS) is a collection of business processes focused on delivering products and services in their best form.
We believe quality management systems are fundamental to delivering world-class products, meeting customer requirements and enhancing their satisfaction. That is why we have adopted an approach of securing, developing and maintaining the relevant QMS accreditations for each of the core high-value engineering markets we supply.
ISO 9001 is the world’s most recognised certified quality management system. It is adopted by companies who can prove their ability to consistently supply quality products and services that meet their customers’ needs.
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including strong customer, stakeholder and supply chain focus, corporate governance, the process approach and continuous improvement.
Precision Micro has held its ISO 9001 accreditation since 2002.
