Leading Sustainable Packaging Company Receives New ISO 9001:2008 Certification

SOLON, OH – (March 20, 2009) CardPak Inc., the Solon-based manufacturer of environmentally sustainable packaging products, announced today it has achieved certification to the new ISO 9001:2008 standards, based upon the results of a 30-month independent surveillance audit. ISO 9001:2008 certification is a globally implemented standard for providing assurance about the ability to satisfy quality requirements and to enhance customer satisfaction in supplier-customer relationships.

An independent ISO auditor noted significant improvement in CardPak’s management system over the past 7.5 years. According to Mike Wrost, CardPak’s quality assurance manager, the audit found no Non-Conformances (NCRs), Areas of Concerns (AOC) or Opportunities of Improvement (OFI). This is indicative of a company that is highly “customer-focused” evidenced by the customer reviews in an industry wide customer satisfaction survey. CardPak outscored its competitors in 35 out of the 36 areas surveyed.

“CardPak is proud of Mike Wrost’s efforts to improve our product quality and our processes,” said Tony Petrelli, CardPak president. “Mike and the entire production team ensure that our customers receive the highest possible quality in both the products and services that we deliver.”

CardPak's certification is part of an overall strategic plan for continued growth and expansion. ISO certification continues to be increasingly important to compete in the global consumer packaging industry. The company is also ISO 14001:2004 certified for Environmental Management Systems.
