05/07/18: NEB Becomes ISO 9001:2015 Registered for the manufacture of composite components and assemblies



May 7, 2018, Portsmouth, Rhode Island: After close to a year of refining their Quality Management System with help from Rhode Island’s Polaris MEP, New England Boatworks Inc. (NEB) has been ISO 9001:2015 registered by NQA. NEB joins a very limited number of Rhode Island Composites businesses who have attained this registration and, while NEB will continue its strong tradition of boat building and marine service work, we look forward to further diversifying our custom composite construction capabilities into new areas.

“It is gratifying to work with a client who apples the same level of care to their ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System project as they do to the manufacture of high- quality boats and boating equipment. They understand to what exacting requirements potential Aerospace products are made and how, by following the ISO 9001:2015 standard, they will put their people and processes in the best position to meet them.” Jeff Stevens Polaris MEP

NEB has long been known for their ability to bring custom projects from an owner’s dreams to reality building with aluminum as well as cutting edge composites. With continued advances in carbon fiber technology and its increasing popularity for use outside of the marine industry, NEB is excited to use our existing expertise in building with this strong, low weight material for new customers in new markets for NEB.

“It was a pleasure working with New England Boatworks throughout their audit. There were good process controls including work instructions, software support and drawings in place showing that they are absolutely committed to meeting customer quality requirements. All staff interviewed had an exceptionally high knowledge of the policy, objectives and consequences of non-performance and were also found to be effective in meeting the organization’s defined objectives. It’s clear that NEB are dedicated to continually improve their Quality Management System and offer exceptional customer service”. Ron Kurtzman – NQA Associate Auditor.
