Case Study

Competing on a level playing field with larger rivals

Conematic Heating Systems, a privately owned company employing about 20 people, is a supplier of home heating technology, supplying advanced heating appliances to the North American domestic market.

As a small company with only large competitors in the heating industry, scalability is imperative if Conematic is to accelerate production and compete with larger competitors. ISO 9001 provides the process control to do that. Over the last ten years, the business has taken 75 % of labour time out of production and assembly, yet they produce five times as much. ISO 9001 supports their management of scale in the supply chain, helping them ramp up productivity and competitiveness.
