Following a path set forth at its foundation, Morcom has always placed the highest priority in providing quality products and services to its customers. More recently, management decided to adopt an international quality standard that would assure current and future clients that our organization is seriously committed to quality and took action to become ISO-9001 certified. This is a very complete and demanding process involving management and employees alike, where the company has to improve its internal procedures, systems and products in order to comply to the standard. On May 2009 the company received its official ISO-9001: 2008 certification from an internationally accredited evaluator. ISO 9001 is by far the world’s most established quality framework, currently being used by around 897,000 organizations in 170 countries worldwide, and sets the standard for quality management systems.
This is of course extremely important to our customers because they will always be assured that our company is well managed, well staffed, and will produce quality work. For a copy of Morcom’s ISO-9001 certificate click here.(PDF)
NEW COSTA RICA OFFICE
Morcom has just launched its Costa Rica Office. Located in San Jose, this new location started operations on March 1, 2008 and will be marketing Morcom products and services in Costa Rica. Future plans include expanding the company’s reach to the complete Central American region. Costa Rica was chosen as a strategic location for Morcom because it is a country that continues to stand out as a development success story; with an average income that is among the highest in the region, Costa Rica is a short flight away from most other countries in Central America.
