ISO Audit Results

March 3, 2015


It’s been nearly a year since Tolteq Group, LLC, (Tolteq) earned ISO 9001:2008 certification, and in February 2015 we completed our first annual ISO 9001:2008 audit.


Company President and Founder Paul Deere stated, “Not only did we pass, we genuinely impressed the auditor with how much we’ve accomplished over the last 11 months. The auditor found no nonconformities, which according to the auditor is very rare for a manufacturing company.”

The (DNV GL – Business Assurance) auditor specifically recognized: the thoroughness and quality of our Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) processes, use of data and graphs in our management and manufacturing & repairs processes, the number and caliber of the people added to our Quality Assurance department, the organization and completeness of our HR training records, and the effectiveness of our cross functional meetings such as the product performance meeting and the CAPA meetings.

Continual improvement of Tolteq’s individual processes and overall performance is a bedrock pillar of our company and a foundational principle of ISO 9001:2008. It’s critically important to us to maintain the highest quality manufacturing standards for the benefit of our customers.

Said Paul Deere, “This is a great accomplishment for Tolteq. I understand it takes a lot of work from everyone to implement a process oriented, metric driven work style that is focused on continuous improvement.”
