Hydraulic and Offshore Supplies accredited to ISO 9001:2015

Published:  07 September, 2018

Sunderland-based BFPDA member Hydraulic and Offshore Supplies Limited, has been awarded ISO 9001:2015.

The company is a supplier and installer of hydraulic hose, fittings, instrumentation, and pipeline materials to a range of industrial sectors and is also a member of the BFPDA Approved Hose Assemblies scheme as well as holding other accreditations from testing bodies Lloyds and ABS.

The ISO 9001 accreditation which HOS has been awarded, provides a model in quality management systems, which focuses on the effectiveness of the processes in a business to achieve desired results. This independent accreditation has allowed HOS to provide its customers with an even more efficient service, saving them time and resources by removing the need to undertake their own audits, as well as providing customers with the reassurance that an accredited supplier professionally handles their businesses.

DNV GL is a global quality assurance and risk management company which provides classification, technical assurance, software, and independent expert advisory services to the maritime, oil and gas, power and renewables industries.

Milestone

Don Fenwick, managing director of Hydraulic and Offshore Supplies, commented: “We are truly delighted to be ISO9001:2015 accredited. This is an important milestone in our 30-year history and demonstrates our commitment to continuously grow and improve.

“Not only does this accreditation give our customers peace of mind that they are working with a company that has a strong reputation for quality and technical knowledge, but we have also noticed some internal improvements. Our Quality Management System has increased in efficiency since the accreditation, which has further improved our already strong customer relationships.”

With over 30 years trading experience, initial growth centred on marine and offshore industries. However, the company has since then successfully expanded its customer base across other engineering sectors including energy, petrochemical, power generation, automotive and food & drink in the UK and globally.
