In less than 10 months, California-based startup, Ivaldi Group, has become ISO 9001:2015 certified, an internationally recognized standard that allows for better process integration, customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement by certifying a company’s quality management system.

Drawing on a breadth of additive manufacturing industry experience, Ivaldi Group works across a range of stakeholders to digitize product portfolios and improve cost, risk and delivery times for all parties.

ISO 9001:2015 is a quality management system standard that was developed by the International Organization for Standardization, which is an association of governmental and nongovernmental organizations from many countries. The ISO 9001:2015 standard is utilized to certify quality management systems that focus on continuous improvement, customer satisfaction and the active involvement of both management and employees in a process-based approach.

This certification is the first step in the certification process needed in order to certify products specifically. Through this certification, Ivaldi has proved its ability to provide consistently high-quality products that meet customer standards. Ivaldi has shown its commitment to constant improvement - ensuring improvements in processes and products.

“Certifying our quality management system has helped us to structure our processes to create a solid foundation. This will allow us to improve efficiency, productivity, and traceability. Global quality management systems are important to align processes and optimize operations across facilities. This certification proves our commitment to meet requirements of stakeholders affected by our work,” says Anna D’Alessio, Quality Management Specialist, of Ivaldi Group.

“Standardized and certified processes are a necessity for any company wishing to provide a serious contribution to on-demand logistics. That our team has achieved ISO 9001 in the short timeframe we did is a testament to our team and a strong indicator of our commitment to evolving the heavy industry supply chain by sending files not parts. Watch this space: we are just getting started,” says Espen Sivertsen, CEO, of Ivaldi Group.
