Specialty case manufacturer Pelican Products has gained ISO 9001:2015 certification for its Erina, NSW manufacturing facility.
The company, which manufactures more than 500 standard sizes of cases used by aerospace companies, military personnel, first responders and outdoor enthusiasts, joins eight other Pelican sites globally with the certification.
Pelican’s Australian managing director Christian Nyman said: “In the industries we serve, particularly aerospace and defense, there’s no room for error.
“Products that arrive damaged may lead to the inability to accomplish a critical mission.”
Pelican utilises injection moulding, roto-molding, water-jet cutting and robotic assembly processes.
The production process is focused on reducing shock and vibrations inside the cases to provide maximum protection to the payloads.
Nyman said: “This certification validates our ability to consistently meet and exceed customer requirements through rigorous quality assurance systems that prevent risk, detect deviations and improve efficiency.”
Pelican began life in California 50 years ago, and was the inventor of the Pelican float, a safety tool designed to bob on the water’s surface to mark locations for under water divers.
It has since rolled out a range of cases, coolers, drinkware, torches and luggage.
