This certification came as a result of an intensive, yearlong effort to improve every aspect of the company's operations. "We're very proud of this certification and the positive light it shines on every person within our organization," said Wiley X Eyewear President of Sales Myles Freeman, Jr. "This certification ensures the industry that the quality of our products and our business practices will remain at a consistently high level. Most importantly, it demonstrates a new corporate culture of excellence that positions Wiley X Eyewear for future growth and success in the U.S. and around the world," Freeman added.
ISO 9001 is an International Quality Management System Standard that specifies requirements within which an organization demonstrates its ability to consistently provide product or service to meet customer and legal requirements, enhancing customer satisfaction and opening the way to continual improvement. It is recognized around the world as a standard of excellence, with more than 1,000,000 global organizations and 50,000 U.S. organizations certified. ISO 9001:2008 is the most current version of this standard.
"The implementation of our new Quality Management System was essential to meet the demands of our rapidly growing organization and brand," said Bret Bradford, Wiley X Eyewear's Quality Assurance Manager. "We established a comprehensive, yet easy to follow system that will keep us on the cutting edge of the vision protection industry. These ISO 9001:2008 compliant policies and procedures ensure that the quality of our products five years down the road will be as good - or better - than it is today. You might say that attaining certification was an important part of our vision for the future," added Bradford.
Wiley X is accustomed to meeting exacting standards. The company is a leading provider of protective eyewear products for U.S. Army Rangers, Navy SEALs and other elite Special Forces Units in action around the world.
Wiley X's High Velocity Protection (HVP) frames and lenses exceed stringent ANSI Z87.1 safety and ANSI Z80.3 optical standards for superior impact resistance and distortion free vision.
Wiley X also offers a full range of high-performance protective eyewear products that provide this same advanced level of protection for enthusiasts of every outdoor activity. This has lead to increased brand recognition and growing use among enthusiasts of a wide variety of demanding outdoor sports and activities, including boating, fishing, motorcycle riding, mountain biking, rock climbing and more.
