'The whole process of achieving ISO9001 certification was made painless by Alun's constructive approach to our systems. Without his cost effective contribution over a relatively short period of time we would have seriously struggled with the formal audit by BSI. Many thanks from all involved at Riverside'

Member Testimonials 2011
Based on my ADW Consulting profile and service offerings held within the business directory of the Chamber website, I secured a piece of work in February to build and implement an ISO9001 management system leading to successful external assessment with fellow Chamber member CC Morgan & Son of Cwmbran. Certification was subsequently quickly achieved without any identified non conformance in July. I subsequently received the following related testimonial from Ceri Morgan:
'Alun was an absolute delight to work with. Very professional with such a pleasant demeanour which made the task of achieving ISO9001 certification flow with such ease. He made every visit a pleasant experience and not a laborious chore'.
Immediately following my article in Chamberchat Issue 1, 2011 based on working with a new division of the Principality Building Society Group to help them successfully achieve their ISO9001 certification, I subsequently engaged and began work with another Chamber member, Riverside Industrial Equipment of Bridgend to assist them in achieving an integrated management system of ISO9001 (quality); BS18001 (health & safety) and ISO14001 (environmental) over the coming months.

"Our initial involvement with the West Wales Chamber of Commerce (WWCC) before the merger greatly strengthened the awareness of our business and services in the community therefore, our decision to become Patron Members was a natural step.
