Hog Slat’s Romanian manufacturing operation, located in Arad, received ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications earlier this year. The audit and certification process was performed by SC MS-ISOROMCERTIFICATION SRL., a UKAS accredited auditing company.
Every process and business management procedure in the Romanian operation was compared to ISO 9001 requirements for quality management systems including; documentation control, record keeping, staff training, quality standards and operational conformance to the system. After implementation, continuous internal audits and an annual external audit will continue to monitor and improve operations.
Because of the ISO 9001 certification, Hog Slat’s European customers will see better quality products, improved scheduling and more reliable deliveries.
The ISO 14001 certification provides an Energy Management System to reduce waste and control energy costs.
In addition, the OHAS 18001 certification strives to create a safe work environment for employees and minimize production delays due to workplace injuries.
Congratulations to General Manager, Daniela Minda and the entire Romanian staff on achieving these certifications.
