AL-KO Dandenong South operations in Melbourne, Australia achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification

The AL-KO Vehicle Technology Group manufacturing facility in Dandenong South, Australia has successfully achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification, an internationally recognised standard that ensures products and services meet the needs of customers through an effective quality management system.

AL-KO’s decision to work towards ISO 9001:2015 accreditation demonstrates their commitment to continuous improvement of their products and services.

“The AL-KO team undertook an 18-month internal process to become ISO 9001:2015 compliant,” said Janan Shaana, Quality Engineer for AL-KO Vehicle Technology Australia & New Zealand. “This was followed by an extensive company-wide audit that included quality management system development, a management system documentation review, pre-audit, initial assessment, and clearance of non-conformances,” Janan Shaana continued.

AL-KO Dandenong South operations were audited by ICG and presented with their certificate in March 2021.

This site wide certification adds to the already existing ISO 9001 certification of AL-KO’s Recreational Vehicle Technology Centre, also at the site location in Dandenong South. Gaining ISO 9001:2015 across the whole Dandenong South site reinforces AL-KO’s vision to be the leading innovator and provider of towing & RV solutions, measured against global benchmarks.

Grant Douglas, Managing Director AL-KO Vehicle Technology Australia & New Zealand said: “This is a significant milestone in our journey of improvement. I am extremely proud of our team for this achievement – ISO 9001 accreditation proves our commitment to providing the best possible outcomes for our customers. We are dedicated to continuous improvement and the implementation of an ISO 9001:2015 accreditation ensures we have the processes and systems in place for this.”
