Brushfoil attains ISO 9001:2000 certification

February 13, 2007

Brushfoil LLC, of Guilford, CT, USA, a manufacturer of brushed films and papers that enhance the appearance of consumer products, has achieved ISO 9001:2000 certification for its quality management system based on standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

According to Jim Parker, a Brushfoil partner, “We sought such certification to continue developing a system to help guarantee our products and services. This certification provides a greatly improved level of comfort for our customers around the world. ISO 9001:2000 certification ensures that Brushfoil has in place a quality system with a proven formula for producing a consistent, superior product.”

For businesses, the widespread adoption of international standards means that suppliers can base the development of their products and services on specifications that have wide acceptance in their sectors. This, in turn, means that businesses using international standards are increasingly free to compete on many more markets around the world. For customers, the worldwide compatibility of technology, which is achieved when products and services are based on International Standards, brings them an increasingly wide choice of offers, and they benefit from the effects of competition among suppliers.

In 2006, Brushfoil expanded its manufacturing plant for the second time, and is now triple its original size (from 5,000 to 15,000 square feet). “Fueling this increase has been the enormous growth of Brushfoil sales, both domestically and around the world,” says Parker.

The company produces a variety of brushed films, including laminating films, pressure sensitive labelstock, heat seal tapes, and its ULTRA series of proprietary top-coated films.
