CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y.—Universal Photonics, a global manufacturer and distributor of surfacing and polishing technology, announced that its Central Islip, N.Y. manufacturing and distribution facility has earned ISO 9001:2015 certification. While Universal Photonics has always operated under strict standards, certification of the Central Islip facility completes the goal of companywide ISO 9001:2015 certification. UPI’s Vernon, N.Y. facility, JH Rhodes, certified since 2001, was the first New York manufacturer of precision surfacing materials to achieve ISO 9001 certification. It is currently certified with the latest ISO 9001:2015 version.

ISO certification is accepted as a global standard for quality system management. It signifies that Universal Photonics and its divisions, including JH Rhodes Polishing Pad Manufacturer, Nuvite Chemical Compounds, CV Nanotechnology Precision Polishes, Aquabond Technologies, and JI Morris Polishing Textiles, meet or exceed global requirements for quality in operations.

“The ISO standard safeguards customers and users of Universal Photonics’ products and services, ensuring operational consistency, reliability, and ever-improving products and services,” said company president Neil Johnson. “It demonstrates the existence of an effective quality management system that satisfies the rigors of an independent, external audit. Most importantly, ISO 9001:2015 certification assures customers that Universal Photonics and its divisions are fully committed to providing the very best in surfacing science.”
