Last week, Lifecycle Biotechnology announced certification achievement of their medical grade bold mold plastic manufacturer brand, VI Plastics. Awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification, VI Plastics has been recognized as having international standard requirements for a quality management system (QMS) which is based on the plan-do-check-act methodology. This important certification provides a process-oriented approach to documenting and reviewing the structure, responsibilities, and procedures required to achieve effective quality management in an organization.
“Achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification is recognition of the growth and improvements made by VI Plastics in both machinery and facility, ” said Michelle Stahla-Quintana, Senior Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at parent company, Lifecycle Biotechnology. “VI Plastics is making high quality products combined with high levels of service and the ISO 9001:2015 Certification is one more milestone in their tremendous progress.”
Specific sections of the ISO 9001: 2015 standard contain information on topics such as:
- Requirements for a quality management system, document control, and determination of process interactions
- Measurement, analysis, and improvement of the QMS through activities like internal audits and corrective and preventive action
- Risk Management, leadership, personal development, customer-centric practices, etc.
VI Plastics specializes in large part manufacturing and custom blow molding design, developing superior strength and durable products across the medical industry. Using innovative and cutting-edge technology, VI Plastics is involved in the whole process, from design and mold making, to the actual manufacturing and assembly of the final part. Based in San Antonio, TX and operating out of their 35,000 sq. ft. warehouse, the groundbreaking company was acquired by Lifecycle Biotechnology in January 2016.
