Lightning eMotors Achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification

The ISO 9001 audit evaluated Lightning’s processes against seven key parameters.

Lightning eMotors announced it has achieved International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 certification for its companywide quality-management system.

ISO is the leading international standard that specifies the requirements for a quality-management system (QMS).

“This certification further demonstrates our unwavering commitment to quality across our systems and processes and is a clear milestone for Lightning as we continue to mature and scale the organization to meet increasing demand for commercial electric vehicles,” said Lightning eMotors Vice President of Quality Troy Mai. “But this is just the beginning. We must now be diligent to maintain our processes as we nurture our culture of continuous improvement.”

The ISO 9001 audit evaluated Lightning’s processes against seven key parameters: engagement of people, customer focus; leadership; process approach; improvement, evidence-based decision making; and relationship management.

“I have always believed a segment-leading product is not possible without rigorous quality processes and highly skilled and dedicated people behind it, so I’m proud to see our investments have been recognized with ISO 9001 certification,” said- Tim Reeser, CEO and cofounder of Lightning eMotors. “Over the past decade, Lightning vehicles have amassed over 5 million zero-emission, real-world miles, and our current-generation vehicles demonstrate our relentless investment in quality by delivering customer uptime that competes with mature gasoline and diesel fleets.”

All ISO 9001-accredited certifications are issued by independent, third-party registrars that are recognized by an independent accreditation body. Lightning’s audit was carried out by DNV, a respected registrar in the automotive, environmental and energy sectors.

“Lightning eMotors had a very successful initial audit, with only minor findings that were quickly addressed,” said Ismael Belmarez, technical manager, business assurance North America for DNV. “The ISO 9001:2015 certificate was issued, and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
