ACM Acoustic Engineering Ltd was formed in 1993, and was originally office based, having three staff. The business has been providing supply, design and installation of acoustic equipment specifically for the generator/stand by power market.
After 23 years the company has grown and now has a factory in excess of 20,000 ft2, employing 22 staff directly, and approx. 10 sub-contractors on an almost permanent basis.
The company includes clients who are major players in the generator market, who come back time after time. The quality of their product is one of the main reasons for their continued success.
In recent years, their more prestigious projects include The Emirates Stadium, The Olympic Stadium, The Shard, The Cheese Grater (122 Leadenhall) and numerous banks, hospitals, data centres and financial institutions.
ACM Acoustic Engineering began to experience clients requesting the ISO 9001 certificate. Chris Porter, Director, got in touch with IMSM to begin the ISO certification process. As it was a customer requirement they knew achieving ISO 9001 certification would be beneficial for the ongoing success of the business.
Chris recalls the process of working closely with IMSM, “The process was easy. That said, we had previously used IMSM to gain ISO 9001:2000, which has now lapsed. However, many of the procedures were still in place which meant minimal changes to what we were already doing.”
Chris said that the whole process didn’t take that long – approximately 4 months. Now ISO 9001:2015 certified they are looking forward to the future and hoping to see a smoother running production facility.
