Wed December 28, 2011 - West Edition

Genesis Attachments has received its certification to ISO 9001:2008 standards.

ISO 9001:2008 Certification, the culmination of an effort that began in 2010, was awarded by the National Standards Foundation. This achievement marks the latest milestone in Genesis’ ongoing focus to improve operations by employing the latest manufacturing, management and standardized service techniques, according to Mats Ceder, Genesis general manager.

“Genesis was founded on a belief that excellence in manufacturing backed by good customer service is at the root of any successful endeavor,” he said. “This certification both underscores and formalizes that commitment. The entire Genesis team has embraced the push for ISO certification and worked hard to make it happen. In recent years, we’ve become real proponents of Lean Manufacturing methodology as well as the A3 standardized approach to problem solving.

“This certification is a great accomplishment for everyone at Genesis and will provide direct quality- and service-based benefits for our customers.”

The ISO 9001:2008 standard is a set of quality practices that ensures the use of effective internal processes that are consistently monitored and continually improved. The end result is a better product, whether service-based or manufactured goods. Genesis’ accreditation is itself part of a larger division-wide initiative by parent company Paladin Brands.

“There’s no denying the value these techniques have in terms of improving and standardizing processes, reducing waste and making our company better equipped to compete in this new economy,” said Ceder.

Genesis Attachments, based in Superior, Wis., is a global leader in the design and manufacture of excavator attachments for the scrap processing, demolition and material handling industries.
