LCI announces ISO 9001:2008 certification award
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 10, 2010
Lakehead Constructors, Inc. Awarded ISO 9001:2008 Certification
Lakehead Constructors, Inc. announced today that it has been certified under the International Standard, ISO 9001:2008.
ISO 9001:2008 is process based; certification recognizes organizations that can link business objectives, operating effectiveness and fulfilling customers’ requirements. Companies that achieve management system certification to ISO 9001:2008 have demonstrated effective implementation of documentation and records management, top management’s commitment to their customers, establishments of clear policy, good planning and implementation, good resource management, efficient process control, measurement and analysis.
Brian Maki, Lakehead’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated that he was personally very pleased with the company’s performance and all of Lakehead’s employees who worked hard to achieve this notable landmark. “There are a number of reasons for going after ISO certification. Sometimes a customer may insist upon it, sometimes a company does it to be able to do business in a specific market, and sometimes it’s done because the company’s management really wants to improve the way business is done. This last reason was our motivation. Lakehead’s mission is to provide innovative, reliable and high quality services to our clients. ISO certification is consistent with that mission.”
ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, is the world’s largest developer and publisher of International Standards, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. The ISO network of 163 countries includes the United States. Worldwide, there are over one million companies registered under ISO 9001:2008. Lakehead Constructors is one of only 15 industrial/general contractors in the United States to achieve this status and make this investment in quality.
Lakehead Constructors, Inc. has served the Upper Midwest for almost 100 years, offering preconstruction, construction management and traditional construction services, industrial maintenance services, and is a leader in the pulp and paper, power generation, mining and steel, piping, specialized mechanical services, institutional and commercial construction markets.
SRI Quality System Registrar, a Pittsburgh organization, was chosen to conduct the certification audit and awarded the certificate to Lakehead.
