Intertape Polymer Group (IPG) Looks to GENEDGE in Preparation of ISO 9001/ISO 14001 Recertification

With the help of: GENEDGE


Intertape Polymer Group (IPG) is a global provider of packaging and protective solutions across a diversified set of geographies and end-markets. The company develops, manufactures, and sells a variety of solutions including paper and film-based pressure-sensitive and water-activated tapes, stretch and shrink films, protective packaging, woven and non-woven products, and packaging machinery.

The Challenge

As IPG continued to scale its global presence and diverse range of products, the IPG facility in Danville, Virginia, sought ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 recertification. Facing resource constraints to conduct internal audits and recognizing the importance of maintaining both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 recertification's, IPG Danville sought the expertise of GENEDGE, a valuable partner in their pursuit of operational excellence and part of the MEP National Network™.

Working with GENEDGE was instrumental in helping us achieve our ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 recertification goals. Their expertise and guidance empowered our team to not only achieve recertification requirements but also improve our overall operations and environmental practices. GENEDGE provided valuable resources which positively impacted our quality and environmental management systems. We continue to be well-positioned to deliver top-notch, environmentally sustainable solutions to our customers across diverse geographies and end-markets.
— Philip Kauneckas, Operations Manager

MEP's Role

GENEDGE collaborated closely with IPG Danville to ensure that their robust quality and environmental management systems aligned with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 requirements.

GENEDGE’s expertise provided a fresh perspective and recommendations to improve IPG’s quality and environmental management systems and supported IPG’s successful recertification process. 


IPG successfully navigated the complexities of preparing for the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 audits and, today, IPG stands as a certified ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 organization, showcasing its commitment to quality, environmental sustainability, and continuous improvement in the development, manufacturing, and sale of packaging and protective solutions worldwide.
