WV company achieves ISO registration
An Apple Grove, W.Va., company has earned registration to a new international standard that will ensure it continues its role as an important link in a long supply chain that connects the company’s innovative product to consumers. M&G Polymers USA achieved ISO 9001: 2015 registration after assistance from RCBI. The new registration transitions the Mason County manufacturer to the updated 2015 version, which strengthens its position in manufacturing and engineering markets.
A member of a group of national and international companies, M&G Polymers produces PET (polyethylene terephthalate) - a clear, lightweight, safe and strong raw material used to manufacture most plastic containers used by bottlers such as Coca Cola, Mountain Dew and other beverage makers. The West Virginia-based company is an embedded supply link in the chain that connects the plastic to manufacturers that use it to produce various forms of PET packaging that include microwavable trays, recyclable water and soda bottles as well as PET fibers and films.
"We’re pleased to assist M&G Polymers as it reinforces its position as a quality link in the beverage industry supply chain," said Charlotte Weber, RCBI Director & CEO. "Its commitment to customer service and customer satisfaction will ensure its place in today’s new manufacturing - a strong industry that continues to drive our economy."
Richard Maack, Manufacturing Site Manager for M&G, says the company appreciates RCBI’s assistance and will rely on RCBI Quality support for upcoming ISO Management Reviews, Internal Audits, and an anticipated implementation of the ISO 14001 environmental management system.
According to ISO (the International Organization for Standardization), the 2015 update is more compatible with other standards and has an increased emphasis on risks faced by organizations. With headquarters in Switzerland, ISO is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards.
