Husky Injection Molding Systems, a leading industrial technology provider to the plastics processing community, has announced its Packaging Development Center (PDC) QC-Laboratory in Shanghai has successfully received ISO 17025 accreditation for preform inspection.
“Husky has always been dedicated to delivering the highest quality products and services to our customers around the world and this certification is another example of this commitment. We are delighted that our diligent work in developing this best-in-class laboratory has been recognized for having world leading standards,” said Benoit Muller, Husky’s PDC Global Manager. “Part of the ISO 17025 philosophy is not only to reach high levels of competency, but to also commit to system improvement, which aligns well with our goal of continuous innovation.”
The ISO 17025 accreditation, audited by China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS), specifies the general requirements for the competence, impartiality and consistent operation of laboratories. It is an international quality standard for testing and calibration laboratories and sets the highest levels on quality management and technical requirements.
Husky first established a presence in China in 2004 with the opening of its Shanghai Technical Center, which serves as the company’s Asia Pacific headquarters. Formed in 2007, Husky’s Shanghai PDC team offers beverage PET packaging prototype sampling, beverage closure piloting and a portfolio of inspection scope and measurements, to help customers in the Asia Pacific region meet the fast changing needs of this market. Supported by Husky’s global PDC organization, the Shanghai PDC QC-Lab offers multiple services with some of the fastest lead times in the industry.
Moving forward, the ISO 17025 accreditation will continue to enable Husky to deliver customers the highest quality, most innovative solutions backed by the industry’s most knowledgeable inspection experts. To ensure Husky’s Shanghai PDC QC-Laboratory maintains high certification standards, the Quality Management Systems are checked once per year internally by the Management Review and externally by the recurring annual audit of an official CNAS auditor.
