Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co., a provider of pumps, pumping equipment and engineering expertise, and a major pump rental supplier, has achieved ISO 9001:2008 quality recertification for its Port Orange, Fla., facility. The new certification represents an enhancement to the company’s previous ISO 9001:2000 classification.
To achieve certification, Thompson Pump demonstrated a comprehensive and effective quality management system that governs all areas of its operation. Thompson Pump was evaluated throughout every phase of the manufacturing process, including design, procurement, production, and testing to accounting, safety, logistics, information systems and human resources.

The scope of the audit process doubled compared with the previous 9001:2000 standard.
“Establishing reliable processes and training our personnel accordingly is fundamental to the credibility of our company,” said Bill Thompson, president. “The independent validation of our quality management system by Orion Registrar provides assurance to customers that Thompson Pump is committed to sound management practices that are thoroughly measured and evaluated, resulting in superior quality in all of our products and services.”
