Lightning eMotors, a leading provider of zero-emission, medium-duty commercial vehicles and electric vehicle technology for fleets, announces it has achieved International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 certification for its company-wide quality management system.
“This certification further demonstrates our unwavering commitment to quality across our systems and processes, and is a clear milestone for Lightning as we continue to mature and scale the organization to meet increasing demand for commercial electric vehicles,” says Troy Mai, vice president of quality at Lightning eMotors. “But this is just the beginning. We must now be diligent to maintain our processes as we nurture our culture of continuous improvement.”
The ISO 9001 audit evaluated Lightning’s processes against seven key parameters: engagement of people, customer focus, leadership, process approach, improvement, evidence-based decision-making, and relationship management. The resulting certification demonstrates Lightning’s commitment to its customers’ quality expectations and to its overall quality culture.
“I have always believed a segment-leading product is not possible without rigorous quality processes and highly skilled and dedicated people behind it, so I’m proud to see our investments have been recognized,” comments Tim Reeser, chief executive officer and cofounder of Lightning eMotors. “Over the past decade, Lightning vehicles have amassed over 5 million zero-emission, real-world miles. Our current-generation vehicles demonstrate our relentless investment in quality by delivering customer uptime that competes with mature gasoline and diesel fleets.”
All ISO 9001 accredited certifications are issued by independent, third-part registrars that are recognized by an independent accreditation body. Lightning’s audit was conducted by DNV, a respected registrar in the automotive, environmental, and energy sectors.
