Berlin Packaging Recertified to ISO 9001:2008
Berlin Packaging LLC has announced that it has been recertified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard from Perry Johnson Registrar. The supplier of plastic, glass, and metal containers and closures reports that it has had seven consecutive years of monthly 99+% on-time delivery of its warehouse shipments and 25 months of 99+% on-spec product quality.
In 2004, Berlin Packaging was the first rigid packaging supplier in its sector to achieve ISO certification. Berlin Packaging's systems and practices have been recognized with various awards, including CIO Magazine's "Top 100 Innovators" award.
Berlin has also developed its own quality metric -- Positive Income Impact. Positive Income Impact quantifiably demonstrates how customers benefit as a consequence of doing business with Berlin Packaging, the company explained in a press release. The Positive Income Impact is highlighted during semi-annual Strategic Planning Presentations with select Customers; 2010 yielded $56.9 million of net income generated by customers because of Berlin Packaging.
"Of the 400+ audits that I have done, none of the companies mentioned enhancing customer income as part of their quality policy. Berlin, you are the first," said Maria Williams-Bell in the press release. She is an auditor for Perry Johnson, a leading registrar for international quality standards.
“As we say at Berlin Packaging, ‘we are often pleased, but never satisfied.’ This ISO certification exemplifies our desire to offer world-class products and services and ensures we will continue to improve and become a better company," added Andrew Berlin.
