ODIM Spectrum Ltd. Achieves ISO 9001-2000 Registration

ODIM Spectrum Ltd., a leading designer and supplier of advanced handling solutions for defence, oceanographic and power generation customers, is pleased to announce that following an audit of its quality system it is now an ISO 9001:2000 registered company.

"We remain passionate about quality, and our ISO 9001:2000 certification reinforces to our customers, vendors and employees that we follow established procedures to ensure top performance while constantly reviewing those protocols to further improve operations. This important milestone marks our continuing commitment to customer satisfaction and continual improvement."
