“I’m particularly pleased because to gain ISO 9001, companies have to demonstrate their absolute commitment to customer satisfaction by setting out – and being judged on – what needs to be in place to consistently meet customer requirements.”

In addition, operator National Express West Midlands was awarded a four-star rating by the British Quality Foundation (BQF) in their first ever assessment against the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) framework.

Dean Finch, National Express Group Chief Executive, said at the time: “I am determined that we embed Operational Excellence across all of our divisions and I am especially pleased to see that it is now being recognised by prestigious external bodies like the British Quality Foundation. I see it as crucial to our future success as a business. We must continuously strive to keep improving and deliver excellent services to our customers.”
