Erwin Hymer Group UK Ltd renews ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Erwin Hymer Group UK Ltd renewed ISO 9001:2015 Certification, via lead auditor DEKRA. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) provides a set of five quality management systems (QMS) standards that help organisations ensure they meet customer and other stakeholder needs within statutory and regulatory requirements related to a product or service. ISO 9001 deals with the requirements that organisations wishing to meet the standard must fulfill.

Erwin Hymer Group UK’s renewed ISO 9001:2015 Certification included a 2-day Surveillance Audit by lead auditors, DEKRA, evaluating the Company’s leadership, planning, support, operation, performance and continual improvement.

This globally-recognised certification was renewed on 09 June by Achim Gleich on behalf of DEKRA, accompanied by Stefan Marx, Head of Quality and HSE for the Erwin Hymer Group.

With a change of leadership at Erwin Hymer Group’s UK manufacturing facility, in Consett, County Durham – led by Managing Director Chris Short – the Company is truly focused on Quality and Continual Improvement.

Erwin Hymer Group UK’s Quality team has been galvanised, strengthened with key appointments, including Craig Hodgkiss, Quality, Engineering & Lean 6 Sigma Director. Craig leads the team: Paul Haworth and Paul Ramsey, Quality Managers; Michael Hall, Manufacturing Engineering Manager; Alan Beel and Stephen Fletcher, Business Improvement Managers; and Darren Cooney, Six Sigma Lead – all supported by a team of Quality Engineers, Technicians and Inspectors, along with each and every Erwin Hymer Group colleague.

Craig Hodgkiss, Erwin Hymer Group’s Quality, Engineering & Lean 6 Sigma Director explained why the renewal of its 9001:2015 Certification is so important: “ISO Certification is a globally-recognised, highly structured system which provides the benchmark standard we have already attained, but wish to retain.

“Our Customers rightly demand the utmost in quality assurance and Quality is at the forefront of our quest for continual improvement. The renewal of our 9001:2015 Certification is testament to the many ongoing improvements we’re driving at our UK plant.”
