BARBADIAN MANUFACTURER RETRAINS STAFF FOR GLOBAL CERTIFICATION
Harris Paints has scored another first in the Caribbean. The 41 year old organisation has recently been awarded the ISO 9001:2008 multi-site certification which covers 5 business units and 14 retail stores around the Caribbean. The 5 business units operate in Barbados (where the company originated) Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica and St. Lucia.
The certification included extensive training for all employees, as well as internal audits in all areas of the business. It is expected that the certification will now lead to increased efficiencies in the Harris Paints system. Through the certification, there are now new databases that have been created making it easier to monitor and act on any issues region-wide quickly. It has also generated improved communication within the group.
“It really is about the staff and the dedication of a small team because we achieved this at the same time that we were developing our revolutionary new product Ulttima Plus which is now available on the market.” stated CEO Kenyon.
