Arpico PVC, Sri Lanka’s leading manufacturer of PVC pipes and fittings, recently became the first PVC pipes and fittings manufacturer in the country to be bestowed with the ISO 9001:2015 certification.
The accreditation was awarded in recognition of the quality management systems and standards upheld by the company. The company, which strives to exceed customer expectations by providing them with durable, high quality products at affordable prices, is also certified in SLS 147 for PVC pipes, SLS 659 for fittings and SLS 935 for solvent cement.
Expressing his thoughts on the achievement, Arpico Local Manufacturing and Distribution Sector Managing Director Sunil Liyanage said: “Arpico PVC is committed to ensuring that our customers receive the highest quality products and value for money when it comes to pipes and fittings; be it for household or industrial use. Because of this, as a company, we continually challenge our quality processes to meet internationally accredited standards. Our latest achievement is a testimony to this. We are proud to become the first PVC (pipes and fittings) manufacturer in Sri Lanka to achieve ISO 9001:2015 standards. We believe that this accreditation will help us further to deliver the highest standards of products, while putting our customers first and working more efficiently.”
Arpico PVC Senior Business Development Manager Gayan Wickramaarachchi expressed that: “The ISO 9001:2015 standard sets out criteria for a company’s production process and is based on quality management principles. As such, receiving the certificate affirms that Arpico PVC has been recognized for its observance of strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach, investment in high end technology and skilled labour and continuous focus on improvement. Going forward, the company plans on expanding their businesses both locally and internationally with the factories manufacturing Arpico water tanks and Arpico mattress also already ISO 9001 certified to meet international standards.”
