There might not be a higher honor in the world of manufacturing than achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification. It is the gold standard when it comes to assuring customers of a company’s commitment to quality and consistency. At Corrugated Metals, we put tremendous effort, time, and money into attaining our ISO 9001:2008 certification. We believe that it gives our customers peace of mind and a sense they will also receive the best products and service.
So, what exactly is ISO 9001:2008 certification and why is it so coveted? The ISO 9001:2008 is a prestigious international standard that sets out the requirements of a quality management system.
As you might imagine, attaining such a certification is not easy. The process to becoming ISO 9001:2008 certified is long, exacting, and exhaustive. The standard it self has a minimum of 28 different specific requirements. You must have everyone (and also a large number of sub-requirements) or you will not even have the chance to apply. Even after meeting these requirements, you then have to train your entire staff how to implement and constantly maintain the ISO 9001:2008 standards. This is topped off with a full documentation of your system and an exhaustive audit from the ISO organization.
Only about 25,000 American companies have obtained this prestigious status, so the entire Corrugated Metals team is exceedingly proud of our ISO 9001:2008 certification. In many ways, it is our way of saying to our customers that we will always put quality and their needs ahead of our own.
