Curry Rail Services has been in operation for eight decades with three generations of owners, with the company evolving into a multi-company operation. Their state-of-the-art coating and paint facility opened in September 2015. Located in the heart of Central PA in a community with roots dug deep into the railroad industry, CRS and their 75 employees respect and take pride in supplying products and services to the railroad industry every day.
With a multi-company operation, CRS identified the need to have employees trained to the ISO 9001:2015 Standard, which requires companies to conduct internal audits of their management system. IMC contracted The Bonney Ziegler Group to provide Internal Auditor Training, which is designed to train personnel to become qualified and confident to conduct internal audits in a positive, constructive approach consistent with the objectives of a companies’ management system. The company received two days of teaching in the fundamentals of the audit process, which included a number of case studies to facilitate the learning process.
At the conclusion of the training, the company participants received a certification of ISO 9001:2015 Internal Auditor Training completion. This is a requirement for a success external audit. The client also received follow-up services to create a plan of action for certification.
“As we continue to grow our businesses we battle how to properly train our managers for the challenges ahead. As with allot of companies, we struggle to get our managers to see the forest and not just the trees. IMC was willing to listen to our needs and then tailor the training to what was really needed. Everyone expressed their gratitude towards IMC and walked away with an understanding of what it takes to be a a better manager. We look forward to working with IMC in the future on other areas of training necessary to continue our path of success.”
