Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow (VDTM), a leading MRO provider for both Russian and foreign aircraft in Russia, has been successfully certified for compliance with the ISO 9001-2015 international standard.
The implementation of a quality management system (QMS) was a strategic decision aimed at enhancing the company’s performance, reducing risks and providing a firm basis for its sustainable development, the company says. The QMS implemented has improved the efficiency and transparency of business processes, it adds.
The audit was conducted by Bureau Veritas, a leader in testing, inspection and certification, recognised and accredited by leading national and international expert organisations.
At the initial stage, a preliminary check of all documented information related to the management system developed by VDTM was performed. At the second stage, Bureau Veritas experts studied the operating and performance features in a real production environment at the airports of the Moscow Aviation Hub (MAH).
“Obtaining the certificate confirms that our company provides services in compliance with the high international QMS standards, meets customer expectations not only in terms of service quality but also in constantly expanding the activity range,” says Konstantin Surkov, CEO of Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow. “We strive to continue a bilateral dialogue with our customers and partners, by promoting stable relationships with all the stakeholders.”
The ISO 9001-2015 certificate covers such activities as maintenance and repair of B747-400, B747-8, B737NG, B737CL, A320 and RRJ-95 aircraft types at MAH airports (Sheremetyevo, Vnukovo and Domodedovo), as well as component repair and engineering staff training.
