“Making the change from the ISO 9001:2008 Standard to the ISO 9001:2015 standard was not very difficult for us. The new standard organized its clauses in Plan, Do, Check, Act cycle which was easily adaptable to our existing Quality Management System. The other changes were mainly in terminology, specifically risked-based thinking, and were easy for us to adopt. As a small business, we are constantly looking to grow and we must analyze both internal and external risks. We are committed to providing our customers with the best possible service and product and we will continue to use the principles of ISO 9001:2015 to continually improve.” – Eric Lutz, CEO Galaxy Wire & Cable, Inc.
