Cleveland, OH – April 22, 2010 –Jergens, Inc. announced today that both its TCD and ASG divisions were recertified to ISO 9001:2008, reinforcing the company’s commitment to maintaining the highest possible quality standards. Jergens’ TCD Division designs and manufactures tooling and workholding products, specialty fasteners, and lifting products, while the ASG Division distributes and services tools used in light assembly.
Maintained by the International Organization for Standardization, the internationally accepted ISO 9000 series of standards were written to provide a consistent basis for establishing product and service quality requirements and to provide guidelines that govern quality management systems. The new 2008 standard provides clarification of existing standards, and requires more rigorous control of outsourced processes, quality system documentation, infrastructure oversight and management.
The successful recertification at Jergens was the result of a coordinated effort among all employees to continually improve its quality management system and provide exceptional customer service. “Jergens has a history of exceeding product and service quality requirements, and our company-wide dedication to continuous improvement is an ongoing goal,” says Sean Stapulionis, General Manager. “We’re proud that AQA International has approved us for this prestigious certification.”
