McLean, VA Based A-TEK, Inc. Announces ISO 9001:2015 Certification


A-TEK, Inc. announced today that it has advanced from ISO 9001:2008 to
ISO 9001:2015 certification by successfully completing the International
Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 audit for its corporate
office in McLean, Virginia.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 is the
most updated, internationally recognized standard of its kind and
focuses on quality management systems and performance. It assists
companies in developing a management system that aligns quality with
their wider business strategy and implementation of continuous
improvement. The newest version of the ISO 9001 certification contains
key updates including an emphasis on risk-based thinking to enhance the
application of the process approach, improved applicability for
services, efficiency, improved communications and increased leadership

The audit was performed by Perry Johnson Registrars, Inc. on May 17,
2018 and A-TEK passed the audit with zero non-conformances, the best
result possible. The company previously earned certification under ISO
9001:2008 standard in 2013

"We are excited to earn the ISO 9001:2015 certification and believe it
provides additional assurance to our customers that we are focused on
continuous improvement and customer satisfaction," said Kathryn
Freeland, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Upgrading from ISO
9001:2008 to 9001:2015 further demonstrates our passion to always
perform at the highest levels of quality and efficiency. It's essential
to delivering innovative, high quality and customer-focused services and
solutions to our customers."
