Bahrain: Falcon cement achieves ISO 9001

Falcon Cement Company (FCC) has achieved ISO 9001 Quality Management System Certification for its systems, after accreditation by Bureau Veritas.

Falcon, which started production in March 2009, currently has a cement capacity of 1000tpd with a planned expansion in the coming year expected to see this grow to more than 2500tpd. This represents about 50-60 per cent of the current cement requirements of the Bahraini market.

The certification follows a comprehensive assessment of the company and its systems. This is a key recognition for Falcon as the company continues to both consolidate its position as the leading cement supplier in Bahrain and moves forward with plans to further expand production capacity.

"We are delighted to have received this prestigious certification," remarked executive director Salah Sharif. "This has been achieved with the trust and support of our board, management team and staff and the confidence of our customers. It also goes some way towards underscoring our commitment to being the leading cement manufacturer in the kingdom through the delivery of high product quality and excellence in service," he added. "We look forward to further building our position and even more effectively meeting the needs of the current and future market in Bahrain through continued growth and the pursuit of quality enhancement."
