Thermoform Packaging: Understanding ISO Certification

Since 1967, the team at Indepak has been creating custom thermoform packaging for our clients. Providing excellent customer service and high quality products are the focus of our operation. When you are searching for a thermoforming company, it’s best to seek one with ISO certification, and we are ISO 9001:14001 certified. Read on and you will discover information about ISO certification and why it is important.

ISO is the International Organization for Standardization, which is an independent group that is committed to setting various standards for all types of businesses. The ISO has created these quality management systems and in order for a company to be ISO certified, this company must adhere to a specific set of standards.

There are many different sections or divisions of standards within ISO. At Indepak, we have ISO 9001:2008 certification and 14001 certification. The first number refers to quality management, which means that a third party has examined our thermoform packaging business and found that it adheres to ISO criteria and has been shown to have a strong customer focus and that our customers consistently receive top quality products.

The ISO 14001 standards are particularly important to a company that produces thermoform packaging as these standards fall under the area of environmental management. Achieving ISO 140001 certification means that our customers can be sure that we are dedicated to minimizing our impact on the environment. This includes making our company a low-waste operation as well as seeking out the latest in renewable and bio-based packaging solutions for our clients.

The ISO had its beginnings in the 1920s as the International Federation of National Standardizing Associations. Although its operations ceased for a time during World War II, the ISO was founded in 1947 and was designed with the goal of creating international standards for all types of businesses in a wide range of industries. More than 150 countries are national members of ISO.

Thermoform packaging is an essential item for thousands of different companies in a multitude of industries. We produce custom thermoform packaging for clients in many specialized markets, including retail and specialty foods as well as companies that produce industrial, agricultural and medical or pharmaceutical products.

We can design virtually any type of thermoform packaging, and in addition to creating your packaging, we also can help with inventory management and fulfilment. To learn more about our services, take a look around our website or call us for a consultation regarding your thermoform packaging needs.
