VALLEY FORGE, Pa. — CertainTeed Corporation has achieved globally-recognized International Organization Standardization (ISO) 9001 certification at its Peachtree City, Ga. roofing plant.
ISO 9001 standards were created to help companies establish requirements to maintain and manage processes influencing quality. To secure this certification, CertainTeed developed a formalized quality management system that underwent rigorous review by third-party auditor UL DQS, Inc.
“CertainTeed has manufactured quality roofing products for more than 100 years,” Thomas Beier, plant manager at CertainTeed’s Peachtree City roofing plant, said. “Achieving ISO 9001 certification shows off the hard work and dedication of our plant employees and their tireless focus on efficiently creating exceptional products on a daily basis.”
To secure ISO 9001, the plant demonstrated the ability to consistently manufacture roofing products that meet customer demand and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. In addition, the facility pledged to constantly find ways to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the quality management system, including processes for continual improvement and assurance of conformity to requirements.
This is the Peachtree City plant’s second ISO certification. In 2011, the plant received ISO 14001, created to help companies minimize their environmental impact and achieve continual improvement of environmental performance.
