Designer of Engineered Fabric Buildings Achieves ISO 9001:2008 Certification
Legacy Building Solutions, a leading designer, manufacturer and installer of tension fabric buildings, has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification, the highest quality-management certification standard available in industrial manufacturing. The comprehensive system audits covered every aspect of operations.
ISO 9001:2008 is a quality management system standard that was developed by the International Organization for Standardization, which is an association of governmental and non-governmental organizations from many countries. The ISO 9001:2008 standard is utilized to certify quality management systems that focus on continuous improvement, customer satisfaction and the active involvement of both management and employees in a process based approach.
As part of the ongoing ISO certification process, Legacy will undergo an annual quality audit to ensure that every level of the organization – from engineering to manufacturing to customer service – is working toward continuous improvement to achieve greater customer satisfaction.
"Fulfilling the strict requirements of the ISO 9001:2008 standard highlights our focus and commitment to deliver total customer satisfaction," said Ben Fox, president of Legacy Building Solutions. "Each individual in our operations must be wholly dedicated to the pursuit of quality. By scrutinizing our enterprise at every level, we assure that our customers are receiving superior customer service and the highest quality products."
Legacy Building Solutions is the first manufacturer to create tension fabric buildings on structural steel I-beams. This rigid-frame engineering concept provides a higher level of design flexibility over traditional fabric structures, enabling customers to specify the exact dimensions and building accessories they require. Legacy fabric structures feature durable polyethylene or PVC fabric roofs with high translucency that allows buildings to be filled with natural light.
In addition to the new ISO 9001:2008 certification, Legacy has previously been recognized by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) A660 certification program for steel building systems. To date, Legacy's in-house, professional installation crews have constructed more than 35 million square feet of fabric structures.
