Date Announced: 09 Aug 2011 (Oxford, MI) – Relume Technologies, a leading manufacturer of light-emitting diode (LED) products and smart-grid control systems for outdoor lighting applications, today announced that it was found to be compliant with zero non-conformances in its annual ISO 9001:2008 surveillance audit, further demonstrating why the company’s patented family of outdoor LED products are the industry standard in North America.ISO 9001:2008 is part of the family of standards published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an international body that sets global quality systems requirements for an organization’s quality management system (QMS). Third party reviewers conduct assessments to verify a company’s conformity to ISO 9001:2008 and then issues certificates describing the scope of a company’s QMS and its conformity to ISO 9001:2008. Relume first received its ISO 9001:2008 certification in October 2009 and has been re-certified each year. Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries worldwide, has conducted Relume’s audits.ISO 9001:2008 requirements cover a wide range of topics, including commitment to quality, customer focus, adequacy of resources, employee competence and staff training, sales process management, quality planning, product design, review of incoming orders, calibration of measuring equipment, customer satisfaction, corrective/preventive actions, and ongoing efforts to improving QMS.“We at Relume are so proud of our compliance and zero non-conformances,” said Relume CEO Crawford Lipsey. “This recognition, as well as our recent addition to the Qualified Products List for the Design Lights Consortium, shows how hard we work to deliver top-quality products and unparalleled customer service.”About Relume TechnologiesRelume Technologies is a Michigan-based manufacturer of highly efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost effective LED lighting products and control systems with sales outlets worldwide.
