ATAS International Upgrades Certification To ISO 9001:2015
Allentown, PA - ATAS International’s operations were certified to the ISO 9001:2000 international quality system standard in 2006. In April 2018, the ATAS ISO certification has been upgraded to ISO 9001:2015 (with design in the Allentown, PA locations). This certification assists ATAS with maintaining industry leadership; utilizing a customer focus and quality improvements that are consistent with continued growth, enhanced customer service and employee satisfaction; and harnessing growth responsibly.
The ISO 9001:2015 certification is valid until April 2021. It is applicable to ATAS’ design and manufacturing of metal roofing systems, wall panels, ceilings, rainware, framing systems, flat sheets, slit coils and toll processed products for commercial and residential construction industries, including products that promote improved energy efficiency. It is also issued to ATAS as a provider of additional materials, components and supplies that are required for a complete system approach to construction projects.
ATAS chose Intertek as their partner to assist in the transition to ISO 9001:2015. Intertek is a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, helping their customers to improve the quality of their products, services, assets and processes.
The ISO 9001 series of certifications is based on seven quality management principles, including: customer focus, leadership, engagement of people, process approach, improvement, evidence-based decision making and relationship management. The 2015 version of ISO 9001 is less prescriptive than its predecessors and focuses on performance. This is achieved by combining the process approach with risk-based thinking and employing the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle at all levels in the organization. Greater emphasis on building a management system suited to each organization's particular needs is applied.
Dick Bus, President of ATAS International, said “We are very proud to achieve this upgrade in our quality management system, to become certified to ISO 9001:2015. The ATAS management team meets monthly to review our progress toward continuous improvement. Everyone is involved and accountable to aligning our quality products and services to our business strategy for growth. This commitment to certification and excellence ensures that we will continue to deliver the highest quality of metal cladding and building components, as well as services, to all of our stakeholders.”
