Ameri-Cal Corporation, the Ohio-based firm that specializes in custom adhesives and pressure-sensitive products is proud to announce it has been awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification. ISO is one of the most rigorous, well regarded standards for manufacturers, recognized as a mark of quality around the globe. This certification ensures Ameri-Cal clients that its products and services conform to the highest standards possible and will meet the most exacting specifications of both domestic and international customers.
Ameri-Cal already had instituted high quality standards for both management and production, but Vice President of Operations Jess Heid said it was time to formalize it by obtaining certification. “It lends credibility to what we’re already doing.” This adherence to excellence enabled Ameri-Cal to pass all of the program’s multi-step audits the first time around and achieve ISO certification within just seven months.
Ameri-Cal offers custom adhesive solutions when a standard, catalogue product fails to perform up to standards. The company has carved a unique position in the industry as a premier manufacturer of high-quality, pressure sensitive adhesive products, custom-designed for individual customer needs, backed with lab-testing and personalized service.
Heid said, “We’re always focused on continuous improvement, and going through this process helped us examine our current product and processes and make further improvements.
She continued, “These international standards will help us no matter where we go look for business. As a small, yet specialty firm, its gives companies a reason to take a second look at us when searching for proprietary adhesive solutions.”
The automotive industry comprises a large portion of Ameri-Cal clientele and in most cases, this industry requires its suppliers to have ISO certification. In addition to automotive, Ameri-Cal supplies custom adhesive products to clients in the appliance, electronics, medical, outdoor power equipment, security and craft industries.
