Zinox Technologies Limited, Sub-Saharan Africa’s foremost technology company, has bagged the coveted Quality Management Systems (QMS) certificate of the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON).
Equally important, Zinox was issued the certificate on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. The certification confers an unerring mark of quality on the various products and solutions under the Zinox stable, for implementing and maintaining a management system that conforms to the globally-recognized requirements of SON’s applicable management system standards.
The certificate was received by General Managers, Uche Onyechere and Mrs Chioma Nwoke, accompanied by other Management staff of Zinox.
Presenting the certificate, Deputy Director, Management System Certification at SON, Mr Richard Adewunmi, praised the quality orientation behind the Zinox brand. Further, he urged the company to continue on the path of quality in its effort to contribute its quota to technological development in Nigeria and beyond.
Explaining why the certification is important, Adewunmi stated that deserving companies are awarded the QMS only after such companies must have met the QMS requirements and undergone the vigorous SON mandatory conformity assessment tests. He added that such acts go a long way in ensuring that only genuine technology solutions find their ways into the hands of end-users and consumers.
Meanwhile, Managing Director, Zinox, Mrs Kelechi Eze-Okonta has expressed her delight at the development, even as she disclosed that the certificate was a reaffirmation that Zinox was on the right track. She added that Zinox was the first indigenous computer hardware manufacturing company to receive the ISO 9001 2000 for standardization and quality assurance, a disposition that is corporate culture and mission. Further, she reiterated that Zinox would not relent in its efforts to ensure that Nigerians and Africans have access to affordable and genuine technology products and solutions.
Mrs. Eze-Okonta said: “The certification gladdens our hearts. It shows that Zinox is consistent on the path of quality. This mark of quality has remained evident in our products and services.
