Happy New Year from everyone at Hayes Metal Fabrication as we ring in 2015 and get ready for what the year has ahead of us! In these first two to three weeks of 2015, HMF has been staying busy and has continued to take on projects in the bridge industry. HMF has been looking forward to what 2015 has in store and is getting ready for another year that is sure to help grow our business and our relationships with our customers.
To ensure that we meet and exceed the expectations of our customers, HMF has been starting the process of becoming ISO 9001 certified. ISO is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and stands for the International Organization for Standardization. ISO is a quality management system that will help HMF strive towards continuous improvement, provide standardized operations for all processes, and will help to better meet the needs of our customer base. HMF is eager to implement these standards as we look to better ourselves and continue the progress from 2014.
To further learn and understand the standards and procedures that ISO 9001 calls for, you can view the principles behind the organization at the official website here: http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_9000
Along these lines, HMF wants to recognize the importance of being a growing small business that focuses on its people, including customers and employees. HMF is excited about the possibilities that 2015 introduces across the board, and it looks as though 2015 could be a big year for small businesses all around. This link shows a recent article that details the outlook for 2015 and how this might affect growing small businesses in general:
We here at HMF hope that 2015 has been off to a good start for everyone else too, and we look forward to bringing you updates about the business as we expand our profiles and reach new customers.
