Edgetech I.G. has passed its most recent quality audit by Smithers Quality Assessments, Inc., earning the recently released International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 9001:2008 with design certification. The company’s entire quality system for the manufacture of Super Spacer® products was reviewed and certified to the standard.
Edgetech earned the ISO 9001:2000 certification in July 2008, and passed the newer standard less than a year later.
“ISO certification provides evidence to our customers that our systems are recognised as being properly documented and followed at all levels in the organisation,” said Thomas Wood, quality assurance supervisor for Edgetech I.G. “We are very committed to the program and do periodic internal audits to ensure we are delivering the highest quality products to our customers every time.”
Released this year, ISO 9001:2008 is a set of standardised requirements that take a systematic approach to managing an organisation's processes so that it consistently manufactures products that satisfy customer expectations. Edgetech’s quality auditor, Smithers Quality Assessments of Akron, Ohio, is considered one of the top auditing firms and has earned various awards for its services.
