ISO 9001 is the most widely used quality management standard and has recently undergone a periodic update to better reflect modern business challenges. Last modified in 2008, the new 2015 version of ISO 9001 is the result of input from business and technical experts around the world. The program requires greater involvement of senior management, broader understanding of supply chains, and more focus on stakeholder (not just customer) expectations. By obtaining the certification, the company has confirmed its dedication to quality in its manufacturing and distribution processes.
In accepting the ISO registration certificate, Harper Corporate quality assurance manager Ben Carter says, “We are extremely proud of our commitment to quality. Our ISO certification helps us continually move forward and, equally important, allows us to publicly communicate our dedication to excellence. It’s a symbol that everyone – our employees, our partners, our customers – recognizes and values.”
President Lee Kluttz adds, “We consider it an honor to be worthy of a place along with the superior performing companies who have ISO certification. This certification confirms our customers’ trust in us and validates Harper’s dedication to excellence in our manufacturing processes. We are pleased to be among first anilox manufacturers compliant to the latest ISO standard.”
