Longview, Texas (May 17, 2016) – Bennett On-Site Services, LLC (dba BOSS, also known as BOSS Crane & Rigging), an affiliate of Bennett International Group, LLC (BIG), announced today that it has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification in recognition of the company’s quality management system for the provision of manned and maintained crane and rigging equipment.
“After launching BOSS Crane & Rigging last year, we thought it was important to be able to show that we have the highest level of accountability with regards to quality documented processes, especially operational procedures,” says David Lowry, CEO of BOSS. “We are proud that we can prove to our customers who demand the highest level of service for their business transactions that they can count on us to meet their expectations.”
ISO 9001 is a set of basic business standards adopted by more than 100 countries for quality management systems. To achieve this certification, companies must demonstrate that they:
- Meet their customers’ quality requirements
- Apply all relevant regulatory requirements
- Enhance customer satisfaction
- Ensure continuous improvements in line with objectives
Certifications serve as acknowledgement that a company complies with guidelines and requirements as well as meets the highest standards of quality, says Jodi Penn, Vice President of Quality for BIG, who led the ISO 9001:2008 certification process.
“If a company is ISO-certified, the customer can have 100% confidence that the processes presented to them are really being followed and that employees have been properly trained according to the standards we have set,” Penn says. “Also, customers can rest assured that if there is a failure of any sort, a root cause analysis will be performed to determine the cause of the failure, a corrective action will be taken and future processes will be implemented to ensure that the failure does not happen again.”
BOSS adds crane, lifting and rigging services to the Bennett companies’ ever-growing list of offerings that includes trucking, drive-away, supply chain management and manufactured portable buildings. “Continuous improvement through employee and management training, along with the desire to exceed performance expectations of customers, enables BOSS to be an industry leader and ensure the longevity of our business relationships,” Penn says.
BOSS joins three Bennett business units currently operating under ISO 9001:2008 Certified Quality Management System: Bennett Motor Express, LLC’s Houston Pipe Yard; Bennett International Transport, LLC’s New York and McDonough Offices; and Bennett International Logistics LLC’s McDonough, GA Office.
