Cormack Packaging have successfully completed their ISO 9001 compliance audit, raising existing certification levels from the 2000 standards to the current 2008 standards.

Ongoing commitment to the highest levels of quality standards throughout the Cormack Packaging organisation were echoed in the comments made by the auditing officer,

"The management and staff at Cormack are dedicated and committed to providing resources, tools, new technology and continual improvement programs to achieve quality and business objectives" he said.

Management and staff have embraced the total quality concept- a mutuality that has resulted in significant achievements for the organisation, reflected in the levels of certification. Implementation of tools such as 5S, Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma continue to provide framework to ensure the delivery of our customer's products of the highest quality, and that the business continues to grow through efficiency and productivity.

"It is especially pleasing to receive the auditor's positive assessment of our ISO systems and our upgraded certification to ISO 2008. Cormack's use the structure of the ISO and its robust auditing processes as an integral and supportive structure for our business operations and processes; this is a clear barometer of not only the value we place in our processes and our continuous improvement culture, but also an independent health check that we can use to develop further. "

"Our business has a very simple goal to be "The preferred supplier to our customers", you can only achieve this position with a dedicated focus on communication and unity of purpose. Our Cormack Values, Processes and ISO specifically support that unity of purpose by providing a robust structure for our daily activities and a platform that supports continuous improvement." Mathew Cormack, Managing Director said of the certification upgrade.

Quality at Cormack packaging is not only an investment in the latest technology including the recent implementation of the Vision Measuring System, but also in the capability development of people. Quality Assurance and Manufacturing staff are trained to understand and implement the robust quality assurance guidelines that Cormack has established in accordance with ISO guidelines. This provides Cormack customers with the confidence that they will receive the highest quality closure to exacting specifications every time. As a leading supplier of complex closure systems into the Pharmaceutical industry, comprehensive manufacturing guidelines have set a benchmark for the production of all closures at the Cormack Packaging manufacturing facility.
