Parvus Receives ISO 9001:2000 Certification

7/9/2004 - Parvus® Corporation announced it has been successfully certified to the new ISO 9001:2000 standard. This achievement further demonstrates Parvus’ commitment to quality management and continous improvement, as it marks 11 consecutive years that Parvus has adhered to the globally recognized quality standards of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

“Our ISO certification continues to make a positive impact on how we conduct business here at Parvus, from our management processes and work procedures to our ongoing quality assurance and improvement activities essential for the design, manufacture, and delivery of superior products and service to our customers," said Parvus VP of Operations Paul Olsen.

For Parvus’ recent certification to the ISO 9001:2000 standard, the accredited ISO registrar Eagle Registrations Inc. assessed Parvus' quality system on multiple elements, conducting staff interviews, examining documented procedures and records, and observing real-time work processes at Parvus’ headquarters in Salt Lake City. Parvus was initially certified to the ISO 9001:1994 standard in May of 1993 and has been audited every six month since that time, including three full recertifications in 1996, 1999 and 2002.

The longest running ISO-certified company headquartered in Utah, Parvus supports its quality management system by performing periodic internal audits, comprehensive training, and preventive and corrective activities, as necessary. ISO 9001:2000 is an international quality management standard and framework focused on enhancing customer satisfaction and continually improving business performance.

Parvus’ commitment to quality was also recently recognized by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, which designated Parvus a Quality Select supplier, granting Parvus the authority to perform delegated product acceptance. The recognition by Lockheed came as a result of Parvus’ 100% quality rating and exceptional schedule performance throughout the past year, during which Parvus manufactured electronic subsystems of the F/A-22 Raptor aircraft for Lockheed.

Parvus utilizes its ISO 9001:2000 registered quality management system to design and manufacture Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) electronics hardware and embedded computer systems.
