The last working day of 2017 gave cause for great celebration at Horizon Marine Electronics as the company was successfully accredited with the latest quality management systems standard – ISO 9001:2015. It was a fitting finale for an exciting last quarter which also saw the appointment of two new key staff members.
“As we continue to develop and widen our portfolio of services, and expand our highly-skilled workforce, the need for a structured and controlled quality management system became more pressing,” explains Steve Worrall, Operations Manager for Palma de Mallorca-based Horizon Marine Electronics. “We started the process of acquiring ISO 9001:2015 in July last year and, thanks to great effort from all the team, spearheaded by our Accounts Manager Sandra Llinás, we received the good news just as we were closing for the festive break – a wonderful early Christmas gift.”
Steve continues, “Instead of trying to cut corners by opting for a less prestigious certifying organisation, we stayed true to our marine roots and elected to work with Lloyd’s Register for our ISO certification, the leading international provider of classification and compliance to the marine industry. It makes our achievement all the more satisfying.”
Horizon Marine Electronics has also welcomed two new faces to its growing team. In September, Veronique Boissier took up her position as Purchasing Manager. Previously employed by superyacht refinishing giants Pinmar, she is fluent in French, Spanish and English and has already proved herself to be invaluable. Veronique played an integral part in achieving the aforementioned ISO certification. Service Technician Daniel González came onboard in October. Having worked for a Horizon Marine Electronics competitor for more than four years, Daniel has extensive technical knowledge, experience and initiative. Hailing from Barcelona, he is also the business’s first ‘local’ technician – hopefully the first of many.
Steve finishes, “We’re fortunate to be receiving glowing testimonials from both owners and crew alongside deserved recognition from suppliers for achieving and exceeding sales targets. 2018 is looking very bright indeed and we will be launching new products and services in the coming weeks.”
