ISO 9001/SN9001 Certification – PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

Troy Clogg Landscape Associates Certified in ISO 9001/SN9001

Wixom, MI—November 24, 2015—Troy Clogg Landscape Associates, a renowned metro Detroit snow removal and landscaping company, announced today it has been certified in the ISO 9001/SN9001 standard from the Smithers Quality Assessment for superior quality management services in the snow and ice management industry. The certification is a noteworthy milestone, reflecting the company’s dedication to prioritize customer satisfaction through systematic refinement of internal processes.

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certifications are awarded by a third party auditor performing extensive research into an organization’s structure, procedures, and policies, confirming the services meet rigorous international standards to ensure customer satisfaction as well as meeting all regulatory and statutory requirements. The stringent process of certification analyzes the business’s operations from top to bottom, seeking commitment to quality at every level. Troy Clogg Landscape Associates has successfully demonstrated effective snow removal management and strives to continue its success through the ISO 9001/SN9001 renewal in three years’ time.

“Receiving our ISO 9001/SN9001 certification is the result of hard work and dedication from our entire staff,” said Troy Clogg, CEO. “It confirms what we’ve known from the start: our commitment to our customers is of the highest priority. ISO 9001/SN9001 recognizes the procedures we put in place aren’t just static standards, but high ones that continually evolve to meet—and often exceed—the needs of customers.”

Troy Clogg Landscape Associates is one of less than 20 snow and ice management companies in the country to be ISO 9001/SN9001 certified and registered. The firm has also received numerous Michigan Green Industry awards over the years in its efforts to promote certification and education amongst its employees to continually improve operations and customer service.
“Receiving certification in ISO 9001/SN9001 was a natural step for us,” Matt Scott, ASM, ASCA-C, stated. “We are always setting the bar higher for ourselves, from our sales system to our customer service to operations.”

Obtaining the international certification assures customers, both residential and commercial, that Troy Clogg Landscape Associates’ operations result in the highest care and quality of services.

How much should snow plowing cost for my home? Hmm...

This is a question that is commonly asked. What we can say is it certainly depends on the site. If you are a homeowner with a driveway and or sidewalk that needs to be cleared we, TCSA, may not be able to help you. Although we built our business over 3 decades ago working with and helping residential homeowners, we have found that the rate most are willing to pay does not allow us to employ the best and most educated team and drive the safest and best maintained vehicles, thus we are not the "cheap" guy for this work. However, to answer the question clearly we would suggest that the "average " driveway in the "average " snowfall in the Detroit area or any snow region that had a 40 to 60 inch total average winter should be at least $100.00 / per visit. Any person who invests tens of thousands of dollars for a truck, plow, insurance and more than works crazy unpredictable hours risking being sued warrants a fair and equitable return on their risks. -Troy Clogg TroyClogg.com

Why Did You Choose Snow & Landscape? Was It Your Father's Business First?


Well, I choose the industry, because the harder I worked the more I made, the more I made the sooner I could move out of my parents’ home and become self-sufficient. It's really no more than that. I tried college, actually a couple of them. Not for me. See, ever since I was young I believed that time and money should be viewed as an "investment" one that should get you where you want to be as soon as possible and with as much joy as possible along the journey.
