CINCINNATI, March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WKHS) (“Workhorse” or “the Company”), an American technology company focused on providing sustainable and cost-effective electric vehicles to the last mile delivery sector, today announced that the Company has earned ISO 9001:2015 certification for its quality management system.

ISO 9001:2015 is a globally recognized quality management standard developed and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The certification provides a model for companies of all types and sizes to use in building an effective quality management system. The standard is based on several quality management principles, including having a strong customer focus, involvement of high-level company management, an outlined process-based approach, and ongoing improvement of the aforementioned approach.

Workhorse’s ISO 9001:2015 certificate (#C2020-00422) was issued by Perry Johnson Registrars, a world-class management systems certification body. The scope of Workhorse’s certification includes design, development, and service of electric vehicles, support equipment, and services. Activities at Workhorse’s corporate headquarters (100 Commerce Drive, Loveland, OH 45140 United States) are included in the scope of certification.

“Every Workhorse electric vehicle is designed and built to the highest quality standards,” said Workhorse CEO Duane Hughes. “Our ISO 9001:2015 accreditation is confirmation of our demonstrated and ongoing commitment to reliability, quality assurance, and safety.”

Fleet operators and managers are invited to see the new C-Series all-electric Step Van at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Booth #941 from March 4-6, 2020. Workhorse representatives will be on-hand to answer questions and present the vehicle.
