Gurtler Receives ISO Certification
Gurtler Industries Inc., South Holland, IL, recently received an ISO certification (ISO 9001:2008) for its Quality Management System (QMS), according to a news release.
“Being ISO certified is a major milestone in Gurtler’s commitment to quality,” says President Greg Gurtler. “My father established our laundry chemical business over 40 years ago with an overriding philosophy that the Gurtler name would stand for top quality laundry chemicals and service. And this certification demonstrates our continued adherence to that philosophy.”
That efficiency has helped Gurtler, a privately held, owned and operated business, grow into a large specialist in the laundry chemical supply industry, the release says. The company follows well-defined and documented procedures, setting annual quality goals, tracking and evaluating data, and taking any necessary corrective action.
The benefits to customers are numerous, says Steve Tinker, senior vice president of research and development for Gurtler. “The ISO process has helped us focus on developing shorter order lead times, higher delivery reliability, and consistently high-quality services and products. We also expect to be more efficient and competitive in meeting the demands of today’s marketplace.”
