Our Commitment to Quality Is Second to None

Shaw Development ISO 9000We believe that quality manufacturing is what distinguishes our products from all others.

In our Mission Statement, we stress that Shaw Development provides “superior value through custom engineered and manufactured fluid management products in global markets.” We consider quality to be one of the key factors in providing that “superior value” to you. And in terms of quality manufacturing, we go the extra mile in our adherence to meeting the best practices formulated by the International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 9000 family of standards.

The ISO 9000 standards relate to quality management systems and are designed to help organizations ensure they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders. They deal with the fundamentals of quality management systems, including the management principles on which the family of standards is based. ISO 9001:2008 (adopted in 2008) spells out the requirements companies must follow to become certified as fully quality-management compliant in areas such as manufacturing. Now embraced by more than one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries, the current version of ISO 9001 sets the bar for quality management systems.

“The standard is based on a number of quality management principles, including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement,” ISO states. “Using ISO 9001:2008 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.”

ISO 9001 certification is one of the best ways a manufacturer can explicitly let potential customers know that their order will be handled in the most quality conscious manner possible. The requirements for ISO 9001 demand that a qualifying company:

  • “Needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
  • “Aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.”

Shaw Development is fully certified as an ISO-9000-compliant manufacturer. That means we perform audits regularly to maintain our certification and ensure our customers the type of quality they should expect from a leading provider of fluid management products.
