Kansas-based bulk materials handling specialist, Vortex, has updated its management systems to ISO 9001:2015 standards, the company said in a recent press release. The company had previously been certified under then ISO 9001:2008 standard – and has been ISO-certified for more than a decade.
The updated ISO standard places greater emphasis on open communication with customers and suppliers, as well as greater information transparency within the organisation and its shareholders. To do so, Vortex’s management created a document to assess both short-term and long-term opportunities and risks for the company’s operations, and developed strategies for how these opportunities and risks will be approached to improve the business.
Vortex’s management also developed a long-term business plant to provide employees and stakeholders with a clear understanding of the company’s goals and strategic objectives for the future.
With these revisions to the management process, the company hopes to “continue building customer trust and piece of mind” around its operations, said Mark Sander, Standards Manager at Vortex. “The end goal for each of these changes made by top management is to improve satisfaction among Vortex employees, its customers, and its suppliers.”
