Associated Materials, manufacturer of Alside, Gentek, Revere, and Preservation branded windows, announced that its Central (Cuyahoga Falls) window manufacturing operation has been awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certification for meeting or exceeding rigorous quality assurance standards—and is one of only a few U.S. window companies with ISO 9001 certification.
ISO 9001:2015, which is the latest version of the quality-management standard ISO 9001, is designed to easily integrate with other management systems already in place, while giving increased importance to leadership action, supply-chain performance and risk prevention. This compliance further promotes production of consistently high-quality products, streamlined processes and increased efficiency.
“Consistent quality has been the key to AMI’s decades of success, and we are continually improving our processes to produce quality building materials for our customers,” says Bill Topper, executive vice president, Operations, AMI. “ISO 9001:2015 optimizes the full scope of our window manufacturing and integrates future-forward innovations that meet the challenging demands for increased energy efficiency, durability and process improvement. We are proud to achieve this esteemed certification and bring this unique value to our customers.”
In addition to AMI’s central window plant, the company said its goal is to achieve certification throughout its remaining window, siding and metals plants in 2016. AMI owns and operates 11 manufacturing operations in North America dedicated to residential and light commercial building products, and fully expects the remaining 10 plants to be certified yet this year.
