Approximately 11 years ago, we contacted ATN with a request to help us install ISO 9001. Thanks to the help of an ATN representative (Michael Crews), the program was installed as a success. The following year, we contacted ATN with a request to help us install ISO 14001. Once again, ATN representatives were on our premises to help with the launch of this system (Les Bales, Alan Hill, and Bruce Perdue). Of course the new standards of 2015 came along within the next few years. ATN sent representatives to help with the upgrade of each program. The bottom line is that we initiated these programs on our own as a means of continuous improvement. But, over the years, one of our largest customers has basically created a quality system that requires all vendors to be ISO registered for 9001:2015 as well as 14001:2015. Both programs are reviewed by this customer through factory assessments. There are minimum scores that must be obtained to remain in good standing as a supplier. Thanks to ATN, we have no problems meeting that minimum score.
