It's been close to two years since Baker Trayte Marine Ltd achieved ISO 9001 certification with the help of NPT Management Systems. Our quality management experts made sure that the company passed their stage 1 ISO 9001 certification audit with zero non-conformances raised; since then, we have helped the Baker Trayte team to keep their quality management system on track, and they passed another audit in December 2016.

Now, as we near the end of 2017, we are pleased to announced that Baker Trayte Marine Ltd have reached yet another milestone: successfully transitioning to ISO 9001:2015, the latest version of the globally-recognised standard for quality management systems. Once again, this was achieved with the help of NPT Management Systems - we provided expert advice and guidance throughout the transition process to make the change as smooth and as straightforward as possible.

We'd like to extend a hearty congratulations to our clients Imperial Car Supermarkets, who attended the 2017 Used Car Awards last week and went home with the very prestigious 'Used Car Supermarket of the Year' award.

This video (posted on the Imperial Cars Facebook page) shows the moment the company discovered they had won:

Our work with Imperial Car Supermarkets

Back in early 2016, NPT Management Systems helped Imperial Car Supermarkets to develop and implement an effective quality management system (QMS) and achieve ISO 9001 certification via a UKAS-accredited certification body. A year later, we helped them to pass their first surveillance audit. We are now helping the company to transition to ISO 9001:2015, the latest version of the standard.

It's been a real thrill to see Imperial Cars go from one achievement to another this year, and we're very pleased to have contributed to their success. Congratulations again to Imperial Car Supermarkets on this well-deserved recognition of their outstanding customer service - we hope your 2018 is every bit as good as your 2017 has been!
