ISCO Industries Receives ISO 9001:2008 Certification
ISCO Industries, a Louisville, Ky.-based pipe supplier and custom manufacturer of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) piping products, recently received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) ISO 9001:2008 certification for its quality management system. The certificate of registration was issued by FM Approvals, LLC, an organization that independently audited and confirmed that ISCO Industries is in conformity with ISO 9001:2008.
ISO 9001:2008 applies to the management processes that influence product or service quality. The scope of the certificate of registration from FM Approvals states: “The sourcing, delivery, manufacturing and equipment rental of piping solutions primarily for high density polyethylene (HDPE) and related products for the infrastructure, landfill, mining and aggregate, industrial, oil and gas gathering, geothermal, culvert lining, power generation, municipal gas and many other markets (exclusions 7.3 design and development planning).”
“ISO 9001:2008 is the natural progression of our total quality system. Back in the late 1990s, ISCO was one of the first to achieve FM approvals. Then through the late-2000s, ISCO was at the forefront of the ASME nuclear process culminating in our N-type stamps last November; and now, ISCO has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification to cover the scope of sourcing, delivery, manufacturing and equipment rental of piping solutions,” said ISCO Chief Operating Officer Lee Mizell. “We are proud of and deeply committed to the quality of our products and services. Meeting our customers’ needs is the most import job we have.”
The effective date of the ISO 9001:2008 certification is August 6, 2012 for both ISCO’s corporate headquarters at 926 Baxter Ave., Louisville, KY 40204, and ISCO’s Louisville manufacturing facility located at 10711 Freeport Court, Louisville, KY 40258.
