Cook Compression® and Bearings Plus® (BPI®) are proud to announce that their quality management system at Dover Pearland Operations (DPO) has received ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Cook Compression and Bearings Plus share the 150,000 square foot DPO facility along with fellow Dover company OPW. The shared services strategy exemplified at DPO provides internal efficiencies, enhanced processes and synergies to improve quality, innovation and customer service. The quality management system certification recognizes the combined efforts and integrated processes of Cook and BPI, covering the design, manufacture, service and repair of compressor valves, fuel gas injection valves, engineered plastics, fluid film bearings, seals, components for turbomachinery, and sealing systems.
Both Cook Compression and Bearings Plus are committed to continuous improvement of systems, processes, services, and products, and achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification is a reflection of that focus. “The Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle that is foundational to ISO 9001:2015 is part of the CI culture of Dover and its operating companies. Our achievement of this latest edition of the standard is a natural progression of the work we do every day,” said Nicole Miles, Quality Manager at DPO.
“Our customers have come to expect the highest quality and consistency from us,” commented Omar Amezcua, DPO Plant Manager, “and that means that we have to continually evaluate our processes and keep up with best practices. I’m proud of the engagement we have seen throughout our DPO team in applying these quality management and continuous improvement principles.”
