Austin, Texas USA – [April/03/2018] – Dover Fueling Solutions (“DFS”), a Dover company that delivers advanced fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging and wetstock management, has been awarded the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 Quality Management System (“QMS”) standard for their manufacturing facility in Grentheville, France.
The ISO 9001:2015 QMS is an internationally recognized standard which demonstrates a company’s commitment to quality, meeting customer requirements and continual improvement. The certification is awarded by the BSI Group and sets a benchmark of expertise and excellence for operations at DFS’s Grentheville facility.
To ensure success, a local project team was formed to develop robust procedures and processes to support performance and complete the transition to the new standard of QMS.
Originally opened in 1968, the Grentheville facility manufactures component parts that are built into the Tokheim Quantium™ fuel dispenser range. There are 75 employees responsible for a wide range of functions, including production of payment systems and hydraulic components, mechanical and hydraulic engineering, and hydraulics laboratory testing.
Jan Liebregts, Director of Environment, Health and Safety (“EHS”) and Quality for DFS, said: “Whilst the Grentheville facility has been certified compliant with ISO 9001 standards for many years, the new 2015 standard places a much stronger emphasis on strategic planning, risk analysis and control, context analysis, and involvement from senior management for the QMS. Implementing these system elements is a major project for an organisation to undertake. The successful completion of this audit underlines the maturity of the QMS in place at the Grentheville site, and the professionalism and capability of those involved. My congratulations to the entire team for this outstanding accomplishment.”
Guillaume Bienvenu, Site Director of DFS Grentheville, commented, “This result reflects the efforts of the team at the Grentheville facility and their commitment to the continuous improvement of our operations, including that of the QMS, for the overall satisfaction of our customers”.
Hervé Bonnard, Vice President of Global Operations and Supply Chain for DFS, said: “This is a fantastic accomplishment, made possible by the drive and pro-active approach of the employees and leadership team at the Grentheville site. It has been a very successful period of time or the facility, with a new health and safety record achieved at the end of last year and now this remarkable industry recognition. We will continue investing in the training, support and performance of the DFS employees to deliver world-class products and solutions to our customers.”
