THOMASTON, CT, April 27, 2018 ― Ward Leonard, a diversified industrial technology company, is pleased to announce it has received ISO 9001:2015 certifications for all three (3) of its US-based locations—in Thomaston, CT., Houma, LA. And Houston, TX.

ISO 9001 is the international standard recognized in over 160 nations that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). The standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement, and provides world-class specifications for products, services and systems, to ensure quality, safety and efficiency.

The certifications were provided by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), an independent auditor specializing in certification, training and business improvement.

“This is a great accomplishment, and reflects our commitment to our customers, employees and the industries we serve, that we are, and will continue to be, a world-class company,” said Lee Kennedy, Director of Quality. “These certifications are the result of our entire company’s hard work and dedication to excellence, every day, every place we do business.

Added Chris Spafford, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, “The continued investment in ISO 9001:2015 is important to Ward Leonard and demonstrates to our customer base that we are committed to a culture of excellence and continued improvement. The military and industrial markets we serve expect the very best – and we strive to meet that expectation.”
