American Made and Built Lighting Company Phantom Products Announces Certification to ISO 9001: 2015 – Press Release
ROCKLEDGE, FL, April 15, 2020—Phantom Products Inc., a designer and manufacturer of innovative military and law enforcement lighting systems,proudly announces that they have been certified under ISO9001:2015 as of March 27, 2020. The company earned certification under Orion Registrar,Inc.
ISO 9001:2015 is the most widely recognized standard quality management systems and helps organizations like Phantom Products to meet the expectations and needs of customers. Phantom Products underwent an evaluation process that included quality management system development, management system documentation review, internal audits and clearance of non-conformances, all of which support identification of corrective actions which we used to implement continuous improvement to the quality management standard.
“Earning ISO 9001:2015 certification will provide additional assurance to our customers that we are focused on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction,” said Phantom Products’ Director Victoria McDermott. it is simply remarkable for a small business to have achieved this goal in one year considering the immense variety of lights we build and design here. Our family has been innovating lights that allow Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines to return home to their families safely since WWII and we all take that responsibility seriously. This certification reflects the dedication of our employees. The bosses may make the decision to attempt to reach a goal--but the execution is in the hands of our staff, and truly, we are blessed. At Phantom Products we desire to always perform at the highest levels of quality and efficiency. It’s essential to delivering innovative, high quality and customer-focused specialized electronics and lighting systems to our customers so they can come home alive.”
For any company, the road to certification requires time and commitment. Phantom Products began the internal preparation for certification in March of 2019, by evaluating existing procedures and aligning them with the new requirements. Since many of the procedures were already well established and met the requirements, the majority of the year was spent improving documentation and reporting.
In order to achieve this certification, #TeamPhantom worked with a local consulting company, CVG Strategy, located in Viera, Florida. Cindy and Kevin Gholston trained, coached and mentored Phantom employees into understanding, formalizing and presenting the requirements to meet the ISO9001:2015 standards.
Phantom Products’ lights are found worldwide in various pieces of military kit, from military ambulance interiors, to the vests of US Army Aviators, to the kits of USAF Combat Controller Teams responding to disasters around the globe. The company’s corporate headquarters, design center, and manufacturing facility is located in Rockledge, Florida.

Are we already in 2019? Yup--and the grip of winter is beginning to yield to the soft touch and sweet smell of spring. Wait--WHAT? The White House is covered in show today? Well, here in Florida Jeep tops are coming off and the sunshine is plentiful so I guess it is okay to talk about [...]
This time of the year is CRAZY. Almost every state and territory has a Conference...and then some of the "big ones" are thrown into the mix, like the Army Aviation Association of America's National Conference. This year, Quad-A is being held at the Opryland Hotel, which is SUPER AWESOME on several levels... 1. I [...]
As we are in the full swing of State National Guard Association Conferences, we continue to be humbled by the Citizen Soldiers that serve this Nation. A few weeks ago I attended a conference hosted by the Louisiana National Guard. It was held on Jackson Barracks in the Lower Ninth [...]
Today is Thursday...and I'm thinking about a throwback... It's very unusual for companies these days to build things that last. It seems that planned obsolescence, or the procedure of building something that will only last for so long before it dies and needs to be replaced, is the new "little black dress" that goes with [...]
The New Year is no longer new and the calendar is starting to fill up. Yes--it THAT time of year...it is time for the State Guard Association Conferences! From February through July most states and territories will have their annual conference where they get together to do the State's business. Often they will have small(ish) [...]
So we make lights--cool, cutting-edge, "no one else is doing THIS kind of stuff" lighting. I can easily make that claim because in the early 1980's when we started with the covert lighting we were the only company using (Light Emitting Diodes) LEDs like we were... I mean you had some LED indicators here and [...]
I have kids...and when you get pregnant, you expect 9-10 months of chaos and pain to get those adorable, squirmy bundles of joy...but when you build a new website...ummm... Well, even though I have been (personally) building our web sites since the late 90's...I still stupidly think I can tell someone: "It needs to do [...]
