In recognition of its pursuit for excellence,the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) last week in Lagos presented a
certificate of conformity to the requirements of NIS ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Standard to Fidson Healthcare Plc.
The company now joins the lofty class of Quality Management System certified companies in Nigeria.
Presenting the certificate,Director – General, SON, Dr. Joseph Odumodu stated that achieving ISO system certification is a demonstration of conformity of management systems to internationally accepted standard requirements and the ability of the company to get it right the first time.
Odumodu noted that the challenges of globalisation including its attendant ease of movement of goods and man across borders have made acquisition of competitive edges inevitable adding that any company that wants to gain a respectable position in the marketplace would have to work hard to satisfy customers current needs and also be ready for future challenges.
“The surest way to maintain relevance, remain competitive and gain more market shares in the global market is through provision of acceptable quality products and services thus making the NIS ISO 9001:2008 standard the key for achieving successful business results.”
He pointed out that the new model of the quality management system standard which Fidson is being certified has shifted emphasis from conformity to rules and regulations to actual performance output which aims at the development of a quality management system that is a customer focussed and provides for continual improvement worth emphasis on reduction of waste in the supply chain.
Chief Executive, Fidson Healthcare Plc, Mr. Fidelis Ayebae said the upgrade is a veritable proof of commitment to the corporate philosophy and core value of excellence.
