Wpd Windmanager Successfully Certified According to ISO 9001

Bremen, Germany - Wpd Windmanager GmbH & Co. KG, which is specialized in the operational management of wind and solar farms decided in 2018 to have the company's business processes certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. Now, the Bremen-based company has been successfully audited by the German Society for the Certification of Management Systems (DQS GmbH).

ISO 9001 certification for all national locations - international certification on the agenda

For Wpd Windmanager, ISO 9001 certification was a balancing act between formalization and individual customer support: "Initially, there was definitely a certain skepticism", Dr. Klaus Meier, Managing Partner at Wpd Windmanager, looks back. "We know from our customer satisfaction survey: Our customers value individual support very highly." Excessive regulation of work processes would therefore be counterproductive. This had to be taken into account accordingly in the management system. As Meier point out, this has been achieved. "Many processes have become clearer and better. We can transform them into new environments and we have now created structures for improvements even more systematically", says Meier.

The next step is for the international business to benefit from the improvements. Following successful certification for the German sites, the quality management system is to be rolled out worldwide. "In doing so, of course, we always look at the respective country and incorporate the local specifics accordingly", says Malte Backhaus, Head of Quality Management at Wpd Windmanager.
