HOS celebrate successful ISO 9001 audit

Sunderland based Hydraulic & Offshore Supplies (HOS) are delighted to announce they have once again successfully maintained their UKAS accredited ISO 9001 certification with an external audit from leading standards company, DNV.


Supplying hydraulic fittings, hose, assemblies, pipeline materials and refurbishment services for over 30 years, they have had ISO accreditation for over 10 years and are continually looking to improve and build upon their continuing success.


The ISO 9001 standard for Quality Management is the international standard that demonstrates the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
Passing this ISO 9001 external audit has been an even greater achievement considering the strains and difficulties many businesses have faced throughout 2020. HOS successfully maintained the running of the business throughout lockdown ensuring their staff had the facilities to work from home whilst still providing material supply and emergency breakdown services to their clients.


HOS Managing Director, Don Fenwick, commented, “To successfully pass the ISO 9001 audit again has been a great achievement for all of our staff, we have all had to adapt to a new way of working in 2020 whilst still maintaining our company ethos of supplying and providing the highest quality products and service at all times.


I’m very proud of the whole team who have worked diligently to get us to this point once again, the industries we supply to, including the oil & gas, renewables and marine sectors demand the highest quality at all times, with our ISO 9001 UKAS accreditation our customers can be assured our commitment to quality will continue.”
