Altex Coatings, which also recently achieved ISO 9001 accreditation, joins 33 other manufacturing sites in Australasia and the South Pacific as APAS-recognized manufacturing units. APAS contains more than 200 technical specifications and 2000 listed and approved products. Participating organizations are required to maintain a quality management system for corporate activities and laboratory accreditation for technical activities.
Mike O’Sullivan, Altex Coatings’ managing director, said APAS “gives our customers the confidence that our products will protect as intended. Adding APAS to our credentials ensures we can continue to participate in tenders and contracts that require such approvals. It also sends a message to customers that our manufacturing facility and processors adopt industry-recognized best practices.”
