Roll-Kraft, a worldwide supplier of tooling and equipment for the tube & pipe and roll forming industry, has just participated in the latest audit by the International Organization for Standardization and has successfully been re-certified as "ISO 9001:2000 With Design." Roll-Kraft has been certified to the ISO standards since 1997.
Auditors recently spent three days on-site, investigating the strict procedures and requirements set out in the Roll-Kraft ISO Manual, governing the internal procedures for manufacturing roll forming and tube & pipe tooling. The auditors determined the company has again earned their endorsement and continued approval of the program. Roll-Kraft maintained its on-going history of completing the audit with no non-conformances. This is the result of the company's emphasis on compliance, with various teams of internal auditors who perform regularly scheduled audits throughout the year, and by diligently seeing that all records are up-to-date and maintained as processes change and improve.
