V2 Composites Inc., an industry-leading composite reinforcement materials manufacturer, was recently recertified as an ISO 9001:2015 company, the most recognizable and trusted standard of a company’s commitment to providing quality products and services. V2 has been an ISO certified company since 2003 and was previously certified under the ISO 9001:2008 version.
V2 was founded on the principles of providing quality products and services to its customers and to this day that philosophy rings true. V2 employees make a commitment every day to continually improve products, services and processes to exceed customer expectations at every level.
“It is important for our customers to know that outside of our own quality control procedures, we are held to the stringent standards set forth by ISO,” said Kevin Horne, president of V2. “It’s a commitment we take very seriously and one we think is evident in the products and services we provide.”
V2 offers both fiber reinforced composite materials and also structural reinforcement solutions for infrastructure repair. On the composites side, V2 works closely with engineers and manufacturers to develop fiber reinforcement solutions to create stronger, higher performing and more versatile end use products.
When it comes to infrastructure repair products, V2 offers a unique advantage by designing and manufacturing custom fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) systems to the exact specifications necessary for the final solution. V2’s StructureWrap FRP systems are certified by ICC-ES as meeting international building codes for structural strengthening of concrete. V2 also manufactures its patented CFRP T-Biscuits designed to repair failed flange-to-flange shear connectors of concrete pre-cast double T-beams.
The International Organization for Standardization, based in Geneva, Switzerland, is an independent, non-governmental organization that ensures products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. Some of the changes made to the most recent version of ISO include the introduction of new terminology, an emphasis on risk-based thinking to enhance the application of the process approach, improved applicability for services, and increased leadership requirements.
