Three subsidiaries of SIFAX Group, Ports & Cargo Handling Services Limited, SIFAX Shipping Company Limited and SIFAX Nigeria Limited, have received the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO 9001:2015) certificates for quality management system.
ISO 9001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS), which organisations use to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements
At the formal presentation of the certificates to SIFAX Group, Ope Bashorun, the Chief Executive Officer of West Sealand International Security Services Limited, who are the project consultants, said the companies’ high operational standards made the ISO audit exercise less stressful.
According to him, “in the 21st Century workplace, standards are becoming a differentiation factor. The competitiveness of the business environment and the need to deliver quality makes them more imperative for any business that has a long-term vision.
“We are delighted to have worked with you all through the stages and are convinced the certification will positively impact service delivery.”
On their part, the Group Managing Director of SIFAX Group, Adekunle Oyinloye, assured that the company would maintain the high standards that qualified its subsidiaries for the grading, adding that the certification was driven by their quest to become a globally-compliant company and the need to constantly evolve.
“SIFAX Group is a company that wants to measure up to international quality standards,” he noted. “By this, we are demonstrating to all our customers, regulatory agencies and other stakeholders our resolve to deliver quality service.”
