INX International Ink Co., Schaumburg, IL, USA, has achieved ISO 14001 certification for its plant in Charlotte, NC, USA. The certification recognizes the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship. Official recognition followed the recent audit of operational practices at the facility, the world’s largest two-piece metal decorating ink plant.
ISO 14001 certification requirements are heavily oriented toward environmental issues, including standards for waste reduction, water and energy usage. Charlotte is the second INX International plant to be certified ISO 14001 compliant in addition to its ISO 9001 certification. INX’s Dunkirk, NY, USA, facility was dual-certified in 1996, when it became the first ever ink facility in the US to achieve ISO 14001 compliancy status.
