April 2, 2013
BURLINGTON, ON, April 2, 2013 /CNW/ – EcoSynthetix Inc. (TSX: ECO), a renewable chemicals company that produces a family of commercially proven bio-based products, today announced it has received separate certifications for Quality Management and Environmental Management Systems from SAI Global in accordance to international standards from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The registration states that EcoSynthetix operates a "Quality Management System" and an "Environmental Management System" in accordance to the requirements of the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards, respectively.
"Attaining these certifications fits with our offering which starts with a great product. Our EcoSphere® biolatex® binders offer comparable or better performance at a lower and less volatile price compared to traditional petroleum-based binder alternatives," said John van Leeuwen, Chief Executive Officer of EcoSynthetix. "Our approach to customer service enhances our offering. We work with customers to help deliver custom solutions that allow them to expand their use of bio-based binders. These recognized international certifications are simply another means to demonstrate to our customers and prospective customers the standard in which we operate and manufacture our bio-materials."
The Quality Management System standard, ISO 9001:2008, is based on eight principles from ISO, including strong customer focus, motivation and implication of top management, process approach and continual improvement. The standard ensures customers receive consistent, good quality products and services. The Environmental Management System standard, ISO 14001:2004, provides an environmental framework for certified companies to provide assurance to customers that environmental impact is being measured and improved.
