The Columbus plant manufactures lithographic printing plates that supply customers throughout North and South America. The International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 9001 is the most comprehensive of the internationally respected ISO standards. It applies to industries involved in the design and development, manufacturing, installation and servicing of products or services.

"In both products and service we always looks for ways to better fulfill our customers' needs and expectations. Kodak Polychrome Graphics is dedicated to documented quality control systems." To maintain ISO 9001 certification, audits will be conducted at the Columbus facility every six months. Audits examine the documents and records that make up the quality system, and the way the people in the organization work and the knowledge they have about the operation of the quality system.
