Quality Management Systems

The San Antonio Lighthouse is 100 percent dedicated to both customer and employee satisfaction, and continual improvement of the ISO management system. We strive to produce and deliver quality products and services while providing the visually-impaired community a more independent and rewarding lifestyle.

Our system meets all requirements defined within the ISO 9001 and AS9100B Standard and is continually assessed and improved through management review meetings and internal audits. This policy and beliefs associated with it are shared by all employees and are communicated during the hiring process, posted throughout the facility, and is re-enforced during periodic employee reviews.

The three upper level objectives established in order to promote continual improvement include:

  • Consistently deliver products on time,
  • Minimize defects and customer defective returns, and
  • Achieve customer satisfaction.

The role of the Quality Management System is to ensure that the customer’s requests and requirements are incorporated into the product. We achieve this by verifying production processes so that the desired results can be achieved, preventing defects from reaching the customer and correcting processes that are not performing as expected.

We also manage the Quality Management System to ensure compliance with industrial standards set forth by ISO 9001 and Aerospace AS9100B.
