ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- CVI Laser, LLC has received ISO 9001:2000 certification for the design, manufacture, and sales of precision optics, coatings, and assemblies. CVI's quality system was assessed by CICS, headquartered in Stoke-on-Trent, UK. During the assessment, CICS examined CVI's business processes, documents, data and records, interviewed employees and observed actual work practices at CVI's manufacturing, development and distribution facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. CVI supports its quality system with management commitment, resources, measurement, analysis and improvement processes.

"This is a great achievement for our facility in New Mexico," says Jim Phelps, CVI's Quality Manager. "Our people have worked very hard for the past year to get the systems and processes in place to earn our ISO 9001:2000 certification. We are now turning our attention to our facility on the Isle of Man and expect to have our European facility certified in the next few months."

"CVI Laser, LLC has been investing in our manufacturing facility here in Albuquerque. We have been streamlining our manufacturing workflows, improved process and practices to increase yields and product quality. We are now starting to incorporate Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma processes in our Albuquerque facility," states Mark West, Vice President of Operations.
