Eriez was first awarded certification of their quality system to ISO 9001 in 1992 making them the first manufacturer of magnetic separators in the world to attain the international quality standard.“Since their first accreditation in 1992, the company has continued to meet the ever-growing customer demand for the highest levels of quality. Eriez’ quality improvement plan aims to detect any areas that need improvement and set up the appropriate corrective actions to ensure high standards are maintained.”Andrew Church, Quality/Health & Safety Manager at Eriez commented, “Eriez has invested significant effort into developing a quality policy that ensures we meet our customer needs.  All employees at Eriez have a clear set of processes and measurable objectives which are reviewed on a regular basis.
