TD SYNNEX Awarded ISO 9001 for the DACH Region and ISO 14001 for Germany
Broadliner TD SYNNEX has successfully passed two ISO certifications at once and at the end of the year received the certificates for ISO 9001:2015 and - for the first time for Germany - also ISO 14001:2015.
The elaborate process of ISO certifications of TD SYNNEX Europe GmbH started in spring 2022, at the end of which Austria, Germany and Switzerland were presented with the certificates.
For the first time, TD SYNNEX's quality and environmental management team sought dual certification. For DACH TD SYNNEX was audited for the quality standard ISO 9001:2015, Germany was additionally audited for the environmental standard ISO 14001:2015.
Probably the most widely used quality standard, ISO 9001 specifies requirements that must be met as part of the implementation of a generally recognized quality management system. Existing processes and process optimizations are audited and it is determined which procedures are to be followed and who is responsible for which quality-related activities.
ISO 14001 certification relates to environmental management and shows whether a company is making active efforts to promote environmental protection and reduce environmental damage. The design and implementation of an environmental management system assesses the environmental impact of companies and the reduction of their greenhouse gas emissions, and certifies necessary processes.
Barbara Koch, Senior Vice President & Regional Managing Director of TD SYNNEX DACH, comments: "I am very pleased that we can start the year with such positive news and I would like to thank our entire team for their great efforts during the two demanding certifications. They demonstrate our high quality standards, our customer focus and our focus on CSR issues - all essential parts of our business strategy. In this way, we ensure that quality and environmental orientation are lived by each and every one of our employees on a daily basis. Continuously improving processes, enhancing quality and thus increasing the satisfaction of all stakeholders involved is also on our agenda in 2023."
ISO 9001:2015 certification
ISO 9001 certification has been applied to all areas for the first time - previously the value area, Advanced Solutions, was certified. It explicitly applies to the sites in Munich, Leinfelden, Nettetal and Eslarn, as well as Vienna (AT), Rotkreuz (CH) and Altishofen (CH).
Both manufacturers and sales partners benefit from the clear definition and documentation of processes, from representation regulations, and from internal audits in which potential for improvement is continuously identified, analyzed, and evaluated. The examination of opportunities, risks and new business opportunities support the claim to be a trusted advisor for all stakeholders.
ISO 14001:2015 certification
ISO 14001 certification, which is essential for many sales partners as part of their supply chain duty of care, was carried out for the first time for the Munich, Leinfelden, Nettetal and Eslarn sites - Austria and Switzerland are to follow by the end of this year.
The certification was actively supported by the special "Green Team" of the German national subsidiary, which takes care of the issues of sustainability, reduction of waste and CO2 and many other environmental topics for both the sites and the entire supply chain of the distributor. The evaluation of new approaches, the follow-up and compliance with the catalog of measures and also the monitoring of developments and improvements are on the agenda of the team of specialists. One of the first activities to benefit distributors and their customers will be the labeling of environmentally friendly products in the InTouch e-commerce system.
