ISO Achievement for West Des Moines

All-State Industries, West Des Moines facility, attained ISO certification in July.  This accomplishment was achieved by a commitment from the entire staff of all three divisions, Die Cut, Plastics and Urethane.

Our management team met with the lead auditor on June 5 to review our QMS (Quality Management System), documentation, corrective/preventive actions, and internal audit records.  On July 9 & 10, employees demonstrated their dedication to following our instructions and procedures during the certification audit.  West Des Moines received zero NCN’s (Non-Conforming Notices) and were also commended for numerous areas of strength.

Annual ISO surveillance audits will challenge us to continually improve our production processes, increase our efficiency and lower the RGA’s and internal scrap totals.  Improved communication, planning and administration processes will lead to increased consistency in quality and delivery of our products and services.

Benefits of ISO certification include enhanced customer satisfaction and loyalty, leading to repeat business.  It provides confidence to customers in our consistency, effectiveness, and commitment to continually improve.
