SeaDek Marine Products, a Rockledge, Florida based manufacturer of specialized marine products, is proud to announce its recent ISO 9001 certification.
To become ISO 9001 certified, a company must fulfill requirements outlined by the ISO, or International Standardization Organization. Specifically, ISO 9001 requires an organization to demonstrate a quality management system with the ability to consistently provide product that meets customer as well as statutory and regulatory requirements.
ISO 9001 certification also means the organization has demonstrated its commitment to enhancing customer satisfaction through the application of the management system, with processes for continual improvement and the assurance of conformity to customer, statutory and regulatory requirements.
Jason Gardner, Vice President of SeaDek Marine Products, attributes the company's successful completion of this important certification to the commitment of SeaDek's employees. "Everyone from the president to the guys pulling foam on the factory floor not only rose to the occasion but far surpassed expectations. The ISO auditor assigned to our program said we were the only company in her long career to gain certification with no 'non-conformances" he said. "The procedures we have now put in place will make us work smarter, safer and serve our OEM and aftermarket customers better than ever."

"ISO is extremely useful for problem solving and process control. It applies the scientific method to running a business, providing the information and tools necessary to make the "big decisions" with confidence." said Dustin Emanis, Quality Manager at SeaDek. "It provides the details of what changes went really well, what changes didn't, and most importantly, when the changes took effect".
SeaDek manufactures a wide range of marine products for OEM boat builders, after-market customers and marine retailers. SeaDek non-skid materials offer safe and comfortable alternatives to molded-in non-skid, paint-on textures and other marine traction products currently available. Made in the USA from UV protected non-absorbent foam, SeaDek features an innovative, textured micro-dot surface for added non-slip characteristics or a unique brushed faux teak finish.
Formulated with an acrylic based high-bond 3M™pressure sensitive adhesive, SeaDek's robust, peel-and-stick application makes it easy to install and requires no mounting of hardware. Easy to clean and highly stain resistant, the product also provides protection for boat surfaces, especially in high traffic areas as seen on the tender.
In addition to the Marine Industry, SeaDek is actively expanding its product offering into other markets such as automotive, pool & spa, and action sports to name a few.
