    O’Keefe Controls Co. announced it has received ISO 9001:2015 registration for its Quality Management System (QMS). The registration was received after an independent audit conducted by American Systems Registrar, an accredited ISO registrar based in Wyoming, MI. ISO is the International Organization for Standardization.  O’Keefe Controls Co. is a manufacturer of fluid control devices, including precision orifices.

    Through its ISO 9001:2015 registration, O’Keefe Controls Co. joins an elite group of companies in 170 countries worldwide that adhere to established criteria defining a Quality Management System.  The ISO 9001:2015 registration is a strong validation of a focus on quality, according to Patrick O’Keefe, President of O’Keefe Controls Co. He stated, “As a lean enterprise, continuous improvement is paramount in how we approach business. We emphasize a systematic approach to ensure product quality with an eye towards continuous improvement that provides customer satisfaction.

    “Essentially what this registration conveys is that when customers turn to us as a resource for a fluid control device, they can have full confidence that the product they specify is of consistent and repeatable quality due largely to the quality management system that we have deployed,” O’Keefe said. “The QMS structure encouraged by the ISO 9001:2015 standard and our emphasis on lean culture have had a positive impact on our success in increasing customer satisfaction.”

    ISO 9001:2015 is the most updated version of the standard; it focuses on a quality management system’s structure and performance. It assists companies in developing a robust quality management system that aligns quality with a wider business strategy. The current version of the standard emphasizes risk-based thinking and accountability in all organizational processes in order to improve effective communications and to facilitate continuous improvement.

  2. New Website Puts More Control in Your Hands

    O’Keefe Controls Co. has unveiled a newly redesigned website, www.okeefecontrols.com that allows you to do your job more easily than ever before. As you’ll see, we’ve adopted a more streamlined approach that simplifies navigation as you search for precision orifices and fluid control devices used in liquid and gas flow metering applications.

    Our objectives in developing this new site were twofold:

    1. We wanted to make our corporate brand and mission clear, which you will see as you move from the home page to individual tabs that define our processes for sales and production And with that you’ll have no trouble seeing what other customers have to say about their experience with our products and service in the testimonials that are evident from page to page.
    2. Perhaps the most noticeable new element of the site is our product catalog. This is a new tool we’re particularly proud to announce since it’s been a vision of our team here for some time. Now you may glance over eight primary product categories and zip right into the heart of your search with brilliant, full-color product imagery, CAD drawings and downloadable data sheets with just a couple of quick keystrokes.

    The point of this new robust format is not to remove the personal, one-on-one contact for which O’Keefe Controls has been known. It is here to better prepare you for the conversation you will want to have when the time comes to discuss specific requirements unique to your system or equipment. So it’s a service point we have enhanced here and one that is available to you 24/7 no matter where in the world you may be located, nor how often you may need to refer back to it.

    Those are the main aspects to the new site and we’re very pleased with the outcome of all the work that’s gone into it. Obviously success is measured in the level of satisfaction experienced on your part. So let us know what you think of the new format. You may reach us by clicking on our Contact Us page anytime. We invite you to bookmark the site as a favorite to save yourself time when revisiting later on to view additional product information or to check out additional blog posts.

    We look forward to hearing your comments.
