Bernard and Tregaskiss Earn Stringent Quality Certification

BEECHER, Ill./WINDSOR, Ontario. Feb. 19, 2018 – Bernard and Tregaskiss have earned upgrades in their quality certifications. The quality management systems of both Bernard and Tregaskiss for the design, manufacture and service of semi-automatic and robotic welding guns, respectively, have been registered to Quality System Standard ISO 9001:2015, as have components and related accessories.

The ISO 9001:2015 standard sets out the criteria for a company’s quality management system and using the standard helps ensure that an organization’s customers receive consistent, high quality products and services. The standard is based on several quality management principles, including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach, risk assessment, and continual improvement.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops international standards such as ISO 9001 and is an independent, international agency with a membership of more than 160 national standards bodies. Bernard was previously certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard in 2014 and Tregaskiss was certified to that standard in 1996 before upgrading to ISO 9001:2015 in recent months.

“Our certification illustrates our dedication to our products around the globe and is just another reason why our customers know that they can always trust Bernard to provide the welding guns and consumables they require to achieve their goals,” said Nashonne Newman, quality engineer, Bernard.

“This standard involves documented operating procedures, internal and third-party audits, management review, and advanced product quality planning — all to ensure that Tregaskiss products meet a very high standard of quality, safety and reliability for customers,” said Jatinder Singh, quality engineer, Tregaskiss.
