How Orion Started

Orion’s managing partners had over twenty-five years of industry experience before founding our company. Working at various levels for larger certification bodies, they realized that many people perceive standards audits as confrontational, unpleasant, or non-value experiences that they would rather avoid.

They founded Orion to turn the audit experience into a positive one by understanding clients’ needs, setting mutual goals, and providing superior audit services with minimal intrusion of business operations.

As a smaller company, Orion can offer certain things that bloated multinationals simply can’t. Our customers love our personalized services, our transparency, and the fact that we are not weighed down by heavy layers of bureaucracy. Having an owner who is also an engineer and former auditor means the company is run from the perspective of someone with first-hand experience working in industry.

Who We Help

Orion has experience in offering standards accreditations and audits in virtually all industry sectors. 

Although our focus is on the Manufacturing, IT, Language, Recycling, Medical, Transportation, and Education sectors, we are always open to implementing new standards and accreditations for our customers. If there is a need and a market, Orion will implement an effective auditing solution.

Contact us today to tell us about your new standards and let us help you implement them effectively.
