Aurora, Ohio-based PartsSource has earned ISO 9001:2015 certification after successfully completing a yearlong project to pass the requirements of the new quality standard. According to the company, the certification validates the strength of its quality management system, its commitment to continuous improvement, and the company’s customer-centric focus.

As an early adopter, PartsSource achieved the latest ISO certification 22 months in advance of the deadline. “PartsSource was ahead of the game for meeting ISO’s requirements,” says Jina Tweed, vice president of quality assurance. “The evaluation process to achieve this new certification can be a long one, but PartsSource moved quickly and aggressively to be among one of the first companies to bring this level of certification to our customers.”

The company says its commitment to ISO further validates its long-standing multilayered quality assurance strategy. PartsSource customers benefit from such quality programs as the extensive use of key performance indicators and the application of a patented Supplier Ranking Module built into the company’s proprietary order management system.

“Every day we are relentless in our efforts to drive better evidence-based procurement outcomes for our customers,” says Philip Settimi, MD, president and CEO at PartsSource. “Everything we do is driven by data and enabled by our technology. The ISO 9001:2015 certification further validates that our business processes, information systems and employee training are all aligned to give our customers a single destination to access four million SKUs and the absolute assurance they’re receiving the highest quality products and services from PartsSource.”
