Matrix underwent a stringent independent third-party evaluation that included assessment of its quality systems; service delivery; human resources; health, safety, and environmental stewardship; and management commitment.

In addition, the Matrix team was required to provide thorough documentation of compliance with each of the five core sections of CIMS and demonstrate implementation of best practices through on-site evaluations by an independent, third-party assessor.

“With this certification, our customers can be confident that Matrix is dedicated to maintaining the highest effectiveness and responsiveness in achieving our goal of total customer satisfaction” said Jim Peduto, Chief Executive Officer.

Peduto added, “CIMS certification confirms that we have successfully instilled the corporate values and best practices that allow us to achieve service excellence throughout the organization.  Our customers can be certain that Matrix will continue to provide the high quality services they have come to insist on well into the future”
