VT Hackney’s Montgomery PA manufacturing facility, which exclusively builds both insulated and refrigerated truck bodies and trailers, has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification for quality management systems. The Montgomery plant is dedicated to manufacturing the Kidron product line and is the only VT Hackney manufacturing center to produce Kidron’s refrigerated trailer product.
ISO 9001:2008 is globally recognized as the leading quality system guideline. It assists in developing processes to establish requirements and to monitor and improve product quality. The goal in achieving ISO 9001 certification is establishing a process for continuous improvement that translates to higher levels of customer satisfaction.
“All of our Kidron products shipped out of Montgomery serve customers who transport perishable food and beverage items to consumers across the country, so it is important that we can show them our continued efforts to maintain the highest quality standards,” said Michael Tucker, president of VT Hackney.
VT Hackney has already started the process to achieve ISO 9001 at its other facilities that produce Kidron truck bodies and Hackney’s beverage body product line.
A company of VT Systems, VT Hackney manufactures specialized truck bodies and trailers that service multi-stop food and beverage service distributors and municipal emergency rescue departments. Access www.vthackney.com for further information.
