“We wanted to get ISO 9001:2008 certified because we wanted to reach a new customer base of government and corporate clients that required their suppliers to be certified to ISO 9001:2008. We also wanted to get certified as we trusted that the standard would genuinely improve the quality of our products and processes. We knew that, as a relatively small business, we couldn’t handle certification on our own. We needed a consultant who could dedicate their time fully to getting us certified and was experienced and knowledgeable in the area.

GrowEQ were able to establish measurable objectives that gave us a good snapshot of the quality of all our operations. They worked with us to establish procedures and work instructions that utilised everyone’s knowledge which resulted in more consistent products and services. These instructions were simple and concise and of real value for training and communication purposes.

The way GrowEQ worked with us was fantastic, it was really organised and simple to understand. They guided us through from start to finish. They had a clear project management plan for the implementation of ISO 9001 and this was really helpful.

Our experience was fantastic. We were really pleased by the way they worked, they were really organised and really efficient. GrowEQ are really approachable and cooperative throughout the whole project. I couldn’t speak more highly of the work they have done at Warringah Plastics. Our whole team has been very impressed by GrowEQ. I would recommend them to anyone.”
