Vertis Chicago Facility Achieves ISO 9001:2000 Certification

Press release from the issuing company

BALTIMORE, MD – Vertis, the premier provider of targeted advertising, media, and marketing services, has certified its quality management standard to International Organization of Standardization (ISO) 9001:2000 at its Vertis Print Solutions facility in Chicago, IL. Vertis Print Solutions, which delivers a broad range of full color sheet-fed offset production for short- and medium-run direct mail and advertising collateral, had to analyze its established workflows and quality control processes in order to achieve the ISO 9001:2000 standard. Following this analysis, an audit of every department was conducted by SGS Systems and Services Certification (SGS S&SC), a global leader in verification, testing, and certification services. The ISO’s 9001:2000 quality management standard proves Vertis’ ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable regulatory requirements. “Vertis Print Solutions has developed and maintained an effective quality management system. The focus on the system and efforts to get the basics solidly in place over a short period is exemplary,” said Steve Zakrzewski, lead auditor at SGS S&SC. David Colatriano, group president of Vertis East, added, “With the comprehensive production services available at the facility, quality must be assured at each step of the process. Achieving ISO 9001:2000 registration demonstrates Vertis’ commitment to upholding and maintaining the highest standards in production and business practices.” Vertis Print Solutions joins the ranks of six other Vertis facilities that were recently upgraded to ISO 9001:2000: Monroe Township, NJ; North Brunswick, NJ; Chalfont, Pa; Bristol, Pa; Rochester, NY; and Craig Adhesives and Coatings in Newark, NJ. In addition, Vertis Europe mailing houses in Swindon, Croydon, and Leicester, UK, were awarded the Quality Standard Mailing Production accreditation in 2003.
