PlastiComp Quality Management System Certified to ISO 9001:2015 Standard
WINONA, MINN., USA – PlastiComp, Inc., a global leader in long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) materials and technologies, announced that its quality management system, which guides the design and manufacture of its composite pellet products and LFT technology solutions the firm delivers using those materials, has received certification to the newest ISO 9001:2015 standard for quality systems.
ISO 9001:2015 Certification Certificate“Producing products and delivering services of the highest quality to meet or exceed customer requirements is essential for any business to be successful,” said Steve Bowen, President and CEO of PlastiComp. “The new 2015 version of the ISO 9001 standard for quality systems takes these quality assumptions a step further to reduce risks associated with business operations and relationships that could impact our ability to meet internal and external expectations. Implementing ISO 9001:2015 helped us develop procedures to better manage change which will enable PlastiComp to seamlessly grow going forward.”
“I am really proud of our entire team here at PlastiComp for doing what it took to obtain certification for our quality management system during what has been one of the busiest years on record for us,” said Bowen. “It’s only been a year since the newest version of the ISO 9001 standard covering quality systems was released, and we already have it implemented. PlastiComp is the first company in the southeast Minnesota composites cluster to be ISO 9001:2015 certified.”
Established in 2003 and headquartered in Winona, Minn., PlastiComp compounds long fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites using a pultrusion process to melt impregnate continuous carbon, glass, or specialty fibers with a wide range of thermoplastic polymers. Incorporating reinforcing fibers into plastics creates composites with structural performance capable of replacing metals.
Noted for being stronger, tougher, and lighter, Complēt® long fiber composite pellets from PlastiComp are formed into components or finished goods using injection molding or extrusion processing methods. They are available globally to produce applications for aerospace, defense, healthcare, industrial equipment, sporting goods, and transportation market segments that require high performance materials.
