BSI award recognizes focus on quality and customers.
TORONTO — Orlick Industries Ltd. has been awarded the 2018 BSI Canada Award of Excellence.
BSI, a provider of business improvement standards and training, has recognized the Hamilton-based manufacturer of aluminum die casting parts and components for its continuous focus on quality improvement and its customers.
Orlick serves OEM and Tier 1 customers in the global automotive industry, operating from five facilities covering 580,000 square feet of manufacturing space.
The company is certified to IATF 16949, a quality management system in the automotive industry supply chain, and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS).
“Orlick has always provided resources for effective performance of the management systems: for example, they have a fulltime internal auditing team conducting integrated audits (EMS/IATF) every six months covering all five locations in Hamilton and Stoney Creek, Ont.,” says Pierre Dovala, commercial director of BSI Canada. “Top management has always been actively involved in BSI audits – opening/closing meetings and site visits. The leaders at this company consistently push continual improvement and customer focus.”
BSI Group Canada Inc., with offices in Toronto and Montreal, provides ISO certification, assessment, training, and software.
Its award of excellence was created in 2011 to recognize customers that excel in the implementation of international business standards.
The judging panel included a multi-disciplinary team at BSI Canada that interviewed clients, auditors, senior account managers, and other client facing personnel.
