The ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard dedicated to QMS. It outlines a framework for improving quality for any organisation looking to efficiently provide customer-centric products and services.
Speaking during the certification ceremony on Wednesday, SFH Managing Director, Omokhudu Idogho, said the certification is a worthy confirmation of the meticulous work that the organisation have put into quality assurance over the years.
Mr Idogho said the organization have worked hard to gain the confidence of its communities and customers by remaining steadfast and uncompromising in the quality of its service delivery.
“For about three years, SFH liaised with the SON concerning attaining the ISO 90001: 2015 certificate for not just the warehouse, but the organisation as a whole,” he said.
“After a series of pre-qualification engagements, the stage one audit of SFH facilities by SON took place in August 2020, at the Head Office in Abuja.”
He noted that the Stage two audit took place in Abuja and at the warehouse in Otta Ogun State, in October 2020.
Idogho said these audits assessed SFH’s Quality Management Systems and its conformance to the ISO 9001:2015 Standard.
“This is another pioneering achievement not just for us but a further affirmation of our deep and unshaken commitment to provide highest standard of services to the people.”
