Only port security barrier provider to achieve international certification
Truston, a global leader in marine security services, today announced that its Quality Management System (QMS) achieved the coveted ISO 9001:2015 with Design Standard, an internationally recognized standard of excellence.
"We are pleased that our QMS, including our engineering design process, meets the highest level of quality standards that are recognized worldwide," said Truston Founder and Managing Partner Erick Knezek. "While we have always been committed to excellence in our products and services, we are delighted to further advance our customer service through the well-defined and documented processes this certification requires. This designation will go a long way in advancing Truston's ocean engineering and design and custom fabrication services, particularly as our business continues to expand internationally."
Truston partnered the West Virginia Manufacturing Extension Partnership to fine-tune its QMS to include all the enhancements in the latest 2015 standard. Truston leveraged the experience at Smithers Quality Assessments, www.smithersregistrar.com, an accredited quality and environmental management systems certification body, to perform the certification.
"We're proud that Truston took advantage of the foundational support services offered through the West Virginia University Industrial Service and Manufacturing Extension Partnership which are designed to improve local business competitiveness for global markets. We look forward to Truston's continued success through increased sales abroad as this certification is recognized the world over," said Kris Hopkins, West Virginia's Director for Business and Industrial Development.
Truston has provided solutions for unique and challenging projects since 2004, including design, fabrication, installation, and maintenance services, as well as inspections and repairs. The company is best known as the worldwide leader in Port Security Barriers (PSB) (www.truston.us/port-security-barriers) systems, which protect waterside assets such as naval vessels and bases, commercial shipyards, LNG terminals, pipelines, oil rigs, nuclear facilities, and dams.
