Comstor Announces ISO 9001:2000 Certification

Berlin, May 1, 2007 – Comstor Germany, part of the multi-national Westcon Group, Inc., the world’s leading specialty distributor in security, convergence, networking and mobility, announced that it has achieved ISO EN 9001:2000 certification, part of the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) ISO 9001 family of standards. 

As a leading business division for the region DACH and a strategic part of Westcon Group in Germany, Comstor has aligned its business processes according to the European quality standard EN ISO 9001:2000. As an ISO-certified company, Comstor offers its customers, suppliers and partners a guarantee of rigorous quality management, transparent business processes and customer-friendly business policies. Quality assurance helps the company handle internal processes and optimise information flow, but it is also proof of standard recognition with respect to third parties.

Joachim Braune, Comstor General Manager: “Increasing quality and customer satisfaction is fundamental towards achieving continued growth. We are very proud to have attained the ISO certification, especially since the preparations for achieving this were considerable. We had to record and document all processes and interfaces in the workflow and our efforts have paid off in every respect.”

Dr. Andreas Barsch, CEO of ISYS-team GmbH, comments: "ISO 9001 is a quality standard and quality is still an essential competitive factor. As an ISO9001-certified company, it is important to us to know that our partners also pursue relevant quality standards. We strive to partner with organizations who consider quality to be a key component in customer service and Comstor is very attentive in this regard.”

Since 2006, Westcon Group has implemented the certification process for its branch offices in Sweden, Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Germany. Meanwhile, all organisational units of the Westcon Group European Operations (WGEO) have successfully achieved certification.
