IHC Krimpen Shipyard B.V., part of the IHC Merwede Group, recently achieves the NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2000 Certificate for the design and construction of complex units in the market sectors offshore, passenger ships, dredging vessels, navy vessels and special vessels using in house expertise.

Considering the market at which IHC Krimpen Shipyard operates and the product on which the company is focused, a strong concentration on the customer and market expectations (an important principle in case of the ISO 9001) has been an essential part of those business processes for a long time.

The certification process has been utilised to clarify the business process for the employees and it served as a texture for the continual improvement of products and production processes. Apart from that, those processes have only been restricted up to their basic lines, so there is still enough flexibility to respond promptly to specific demands and needs of our customers.

The management of IHC Krimpen Shipyard considers the quality management system as a useful tool to pursue the chosen way of professionalising and constantly improving itself in an energetic way.
