Beardow Adams’ latest production facility has been awarded its first ISO certification for the manufacture of hot-melt adhesives.
Beardow Adams Hot Melt Werk GmbH is a multimillion-euro production facility that opened in 2019 as an extension to the adhesive company’s UK production site. It was designed to help Beardow Adams better serve mainland Europe. This world-scale manufacturing site has now received the ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Beardow Adams Hot Melt Werk is Beardow Adams’ second facility in Frankfurt and is now the company’s final factory to be awarded an ISO certification. Beardow Adams’ UK, Swedish, Spanish and US sites have already received an ISO certification with some also receiving an ISO 14001:2015 certification.
The ISO 9001 Quality Management certification is known as the world’s most recognised QMS standard. It is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system and helps businesses to improve efficiency and profit margins, win and retain business and stand out from competitors.
Being awarded this certification marks Beardow Adams’ latest formal step in the development of its Hot Melt Werk business. The certification helps to ensure that the products manufactured from this facility are of the quality its users come to expect and demonstrates to customers that Beardow Adams is committed to continual improvement.
Of this achievement, Michael Wakeman, Director of Operations at Beardow Adams, has said:
“This is a major milestone in the short history of Beardow Adams Hot Melt Werk GmbH. The ISO certification underlines our commitment to the market, emphasises our continual improvement, and provides our customers and Global Partners with high quality hot-melt adhesives.”
