PPG-Devold, the 50-50 joint venture to manufacture glass-fibre reinforcement fabrics for the North American wind energy market, has received the quality standard from UL DQS.
“PPG-Devold has always had a strong focus on quality and customer satisfaction,” said Herb Elder, President and Operations Manager, PPG-Devold. “The ISO 9001:2008 registration illustrates our commitments to quality, to supporting our customers, and to meeting the strict demands of the industry. It is consistent with our goal to be a world-class supplier in the composites market that inspires confidence in customers who purchase our multiaxial fabrics.”
PPG-Devold implemented its quality management system when the operation launched in 2007, with the goal of achieving ISO certification by mid-year 2011. The system provides a logical, organized process for ensuring product quality, on-time supply and immediate responsiveness to customers’ requests, helping PPG-Devold to achieve customer satisfaction.
With the registration process completed, Elder said PPG-Devold should receive formal certification for compliance with ISO 9001:2008 by the end of June.
