Salient Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of L.B. Foster Co., achieved ISO 9001:2008 Certification in the second quarter of 2016. This facility engineers and manufactures remote infrastructure and vehicle monitoring devices and software for the global rail industry.

The Dublin, Ohio-based company now joins thirteen other locations within the overall L.B. Foster Rail Business that are part of a multi-site Quality Management registration.

“We have developed a top level Quality/Business Operations Management System manual which describes our strategy and policy for the L.B. Foster Rail Business,” notes Neal Dow, L.B. Foster’s director of quality assurance and plant support. “This recognition is significant because Salient’s business practices meet the international standard for operational excellence. We also received high marks from the auditor regarding the understanding of quality practices by every one of our employees at this facility and their ability to effectively communicate that understanding.”

Per Mike Hudson, general manager, L.B. Foster Salient Systems, “This certification is the result of years of hard work and the dedication of our employees at Salient Systems. Becoming ISO 9001:2008 Certified further demonstrates our commitment to adhere to our company policies for continually improving the products and services that will meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. It is a tribute to the employees at Dublin and their dedication to the quality process in everything that they do.”
