Patents and Certifications
We take quality very seriously at Techmer PM, and as such, have taken the necessary steps to ensure our company is certified as compliant with management systems that improve our business processes. Certifications also position us for success when creating new additives and colorants, enabling us to be a leader and compete in the marketplace.
Techmer PM Certifications
Techmer PM, LLC is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company. We achieved this certification in August 2010 after being ISO 9001 certified since June 1996. Certification was awarded by Intertek, under ANAB accreditation. The entire ISO certification process took just over 18 months.
The majority of the time was used to unify the quality systems of the two existing plants in Clinton, TN and Rancho Dominguez, CA. Personnel in both locations were assigned to work with each other to develop the best procedures. The result was one quality system for the entire company.
Ultimately, our certification offers and ensures our customers consistency between manufacturing sites. Unlike other companies, Techmer PM, LLC chose to be certified under one certificate. We felt it was critical every plant followed the same quality system with the same policies and procedures. Although one certificate meant that all plants had to pass before any certificate could be issued, we were dedicated to achieving the same level of quality no matter where the product was produced.
