Akkerman Earns ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Akkerman Inc., a premier trenchless underground construction systems manufacturer, attained ISO 9001:2015 for its quality management system at its sole manufacturing facility in Brownsdale, Minn.

The scope of the certification applies to the design, manufacture, sales and services of on-line and on-grade tunneling and pipe jacking products for the underground sewer, water, gas and electrical utilities industries.

It follows the company’s receipt of the Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program for safety in 2010, “as a natural progression to strengthen the business,” said Justin Akkerman, operations manager.

“Not only does our comprehensive quality management system benefit our employees through procedure efficiencies and repeat-ability, but our customers can also feel confident,” he added. “Our ISO 9001:2015 ensures that from design conception to final product testing, our equipment is produced with quality and value at the forefront.”

Established in 1973, Akkerman develops, manufactures and supports advanced guided boring, microtunneling, pipe jacking, sliplining and tunneling underground construction solutions that accurately install a variety of pipe in an extensive range of ground conditions and project challenges. •
