Prudential Maintains Cleanroom Certification
Prudential Cleanroom Services recently announced that it has completed its surveillance audits for ISO 9001:2008 through TUV SUD America Inc. This certification applies to Prudential’s corporate headquarters and its national network of six cleanroom laundry processing facilities located in Los Angeles and Milpitas, CA; Mesa, AZ; Austin, TX; Richmond, VA; Portland, OR; and the company’s Distribution Center in Cerritos, CA, according to a news release.
“The entire organization is extremely proud of the cleanroom division’s ISO 9001:2008 certification, and our first certification for our Distribution Center,” said Prudential Overall Supply President Tom Watts. “This reinforces Prudential’s ongoing commitment to providing best-in-class quality products and services.”
Prudential implemented a Quality Management System (QMS) in accordance with ISO 9001:2008. The scope of the QMS includes providing cleanroom apparel and other contamination-control products and services for use in controlled environments.
“This year’s audits included the Austin, TX, processing plant becoming the first plant to bring its industrial process under the ISO Management System, and the first certification for the Distribution Center in Cerritos, CA,” said Dianne Knitter, director of quality assurance at Prudential. “Prudential is looking forward to moving to the ISO 9001:2015 standard in 2018.”
The company’s QMS received its initial certificate of registration to ISO 9000:1994 in March 2000.
