Westwind Air Bearings is pleased to announce that, following a system review and on-site audit by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance, Westwind Air Bearings Suzhou (China) Company Ltd has successfully gained ISO9001:2000 Certification.

Opened in March 2003, Westwind's facility in Suzhou includes a dedicated spindle repair workshop and component manufacturing capabilities, a duplicate to that in Westwind's main factory in England.

Dale Barnard, Quality Manager for Westwind Air Bearings Ltd, said, "The opening of our new facilities in Suzhou and the recent receipt of the ISO9001:2000 certification reaffirms Westwind's commitment to provide local support in the Far East and respond to our customers' needs more effectively".

ISO9001 is an international standard supported by more than 120 countries worldwide. The standard is based upon eight generic management principles, including continual improvement and customer satisfaction. These principles are used by Westwind Air Bearings as a framework towards improved business performance.
