Arnott Inc. has received ISO 9001:2008 Management System Certification for its quality management program.
The company’s quality program was certified by ABS Quality Evaluations, an independent certification body.
ISO 9001:2008 certification is based on quality management principles which include strong customer focus and continual improvement of robust, efficient processes. It is a standard developed to help businesses and organizations deliver consistently high quality products and services, become more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.
Arnott says it is now working towards achieving the ISO 9001:2015 certification.

"Now, with the ISO 9001:2008 Certification in hand, we have both a current affirmation of our longstanding commitment to excellence, and a roadmap to help us continue to meet or exceed customer expectations in the future."
Patrick Fix, Arnott’s director of engineering, says: "The ABS Quality Evaluations audit team was impressed with the culture of the Arnott organization and its dedication to adhere to stringent Quality Management System principles."
In addition to ISO 9001:2008 Certification, Arnott recently received TÜV Rheinland Product Safety and Quality Certification. Last year, Arnott's products also earned GOST ISO 9001-2011 Certification and the EurAsian Conformity (EAC) Mark for Arnott's Quality Management System which is required for export to Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Armenia.
