CVC Specialty Chemicals, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has achieved ISO 9001:2000 certification. This standard calls for the implementation and maintenance of a quality management system, which promotes continuous improvement in all areas of company performance. "Earning ISO 9001:2000 certification demonstrates our commitment to raising standards of performance in research and development, manufacturing and customer service by improving each department's level of efficiency and reliability," said John Cech, General Manager of CVC. "It is our observance of these performance standards that will continue to improve the quality of our operations and promote our efforts to consistently meet customer expectations." CVC initiated the process of ISO 9001:2000 certification in early 2003 with a company-wide commitment to developing higher-level business standards. The process required the company to review its current operating standards, develop departmental goals and objectives, documentation, and internal auditing procedures to meet the requirements of certification. In addition to internal audits, Perry Johnson Registrars, Inc. will perform audits as well, to assure the organization's continuing compliance to ISO quality standards.
