Cooper mold operations earn ISO label

July 10, 2003

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s mold operations have received ISO 9001:2000 accreditation.

The ISO 9001 certification applies to companies that perform design, development to production, installation and servicing, according to Cooper officials.

Cooper's mold department began the process in May 2002 and passed its final audit this past February.

The Findlay, Ohio-based tiremaker has invested more than 4,000 hours in the process.
