Mary Emerson, Owner
RI Heat Treating


Rhode Island Heat treating was looking to get ISO 9001:2015 certified to document their quality to existing clients and expand their market.


RI Heat Treating brought in Polaris MEP to help lead, train, coordinate and facilitate the preparation for ISO 9001:2015 registration.

Polaris MEP assisted with process and documentation improvements to align with ISO 9001:2015 requirements, now with a heavier focus on risk. Polaris MEP helped lead, train, coordinate and facilitate the Internal Audit of their system against the requirements for ISO 9001:2015 to maintain their registration. lmpacts, measures and outcomes from project initiatives were developed jointly, with progress communicated on a frequent, formal and regular basis.

Polaris MEP leveraged their decades of QMS expertise and the knowledge to fully support project implementation to ensure business sustainability and growth.
