International Expansion Leads To ISO-9001 Certification

Bringing you information about SQA, Quality Management, and more.

Anderson International Corporation -- a Stow, Ohio manufacturer of dewatering and drying equipment for synthetic rubber producers -- has experienced quite the boom in business over the last three years. Rubber News recently told their story of relocating from Cleveland in 2011 with a team of 50 to their current 78,200-sq.-ft. facility, now with 130 employees.

What prompted such an explosion in their operations? Five years ago, 70 percent of the company’s total shipments went overseas. That number has grown to 84 percent, driven by increasing demand for complete synthetic rubber processing systems by Anderson portfolio companies in more than 90 countries.

With that expansion comes new territory for Anderson. They have become adept at working with the Ex-Im Bank, the official export/import credit agency in the United States, to gain proper certifications across the world. They invested in manually operated CNC equipment, as well as a new ERP system and 3D software that can create a complete picture of a plant’s layout to project the impact of the finishing line.

Anderson’s next step is ISO-9001 certification, so our team will be onsite to audit their operations for certification in February. Read the full Rubber News article, or click here to learn more about ISO-9001 certification for your business.
