SPACEHAB, Inc., a leading provider of commercial space services,
today celebrates the achievement of a major milestone, ISO 9001

ISO – the International Organization for Standardization —
maintains global standards for business operations.

“ISO certification is a vital part of our continuing efforts to
provide quality products and services to our customers,” SPACEHAB
President David A. Rossi told employees gathered for a ceremony at the
company’s Houston base of operations. “Certification will help us to
ensure our continued leadership in the space industry.”

ISO certification entails an extensive audit of business
operations. ISO’s audit of SPACEHAB did not yield any nonconformances.
“Congratulations to everyone at SPACEHAB for contributing to this
important achievement,” said SPACEHAB Quality System Director Jim
Schultz. “SPACEHAB has an excellent Management System in place that
ensures our ability to provide world-class products and services to
our customers.”

ISO is a global nongovernmental federation of national standards
bodies from some 130 countries that aims to encourage the development
of standardization and facilitate global trade. ISO standards
establish specifications that are intended to ensure that materials,
procedures, processes, and services meet customer needs. SPACEHAB’s
customers require the company to be ISO-compliant.

Founded in 1984 and with more than $100 million in annual revenue,
SPACEHAB, a leading provider of commercial space services, is the
first company to commercially develop, own, and operate habitable

aboard NASA’s Space Shuttles.

The company also supports astronaut training at NASA’s Johnson
Space Center in Houston and provides commercial satellite processing
services for Boeing’s Delta and Lockheed Martin’s Atlas launch
vehicles near Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
