20 Jun Barrett Receives ISO 9001:2015 Certification
Global Stamp of Excellence Awards Company’s Manufacturing Process and Standards
The quality management system governing the manufacture of Barrett Firearms has received ISO 9001:2015 certification following an audit by NQA, a leading global independently accredited certification body. The ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Standard, the internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS), is the most widely used standard in the world.
Barrett Firearms’ receipt of ISO 9001:2015 certification means the company’s quality management system follows internationally recognized processes in order to deliver an effective product in the design and manufacture of firearms, ammunition, integrated ballistics computers and accessories, and to provide training for systems.
“This achievement is the result of years of dedication to continuous improvement, perfecting of processes, and the ultimate goal of exceeding our customers’ expectations,” said Chris Barrett, president of Barrett Firearms. “Along the way we have exceeded our own expectations. This certification is not easily achieved. I am so proud of what our team has built here; we have set ourselves up for years of future success.”
The company manufactures eight distinct models of rifles, including the Model 82A1, and launched a new line of shotguns under the Barrett Sovereign brand. Barrett rifles are used by military organizations, law enforcement agencies and competitive shooters around the world. In addition to the Model 82A1 sniper rifle, Barrett’s MRAD rifle was named the 2012 “Rifle of the Year” by Shooting Illustrated magazine.
This latest accolade follows Barrett’s M82 being named Tennessee’s official state rifle earlier this year and reaffirms Barret’s place as a world-class firearms producer.
