Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has achieved a worldwide certification complying with ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environmental care) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health & safety). This means that all of the company’s sites and functions – from Arvika to Changwon, Brussels to Curitiba, Sales & Marketing to Technology, are working in a correct and consistent manner.
The three standards audited align with Volvo’s core values of quality, safety and environmental care. To achieve the worldwide certification Volvo CE proved it was a unified organization, under one process model, fully aligned across all sites around the world.
“Our global certification, covering all three ISO standards, sends out a clear message that Volvo CE is a well aligned organization worldwide and takes its core values seriously,” said Volvo CE president Pat Olney. “The ability to have – and externally prove – that all sites and functions share the same processes and business requirements is reassuring to both employees and our customers. It gives us a benchmark from which the entire company can consistently improve upon.”
