The International Organization for Standardization was founded in 1946, in Geneva, Switzerland, to create and maintain international standards for the manufacture, testing, and quality of products from credit cards to software to quality systems. Today, the organization is comprised of government, business, and industry representatives from over 100 nations worldwide, and ISO 9001 registration has become the world standard for quality system excellence.
ISO 9001 is the organization's quality standard developed specifically for manufacturing and service companies like The Garland Company. The ISO 9000 family of standards provides a measure by which to judge a company's total involvement in and commitment to a philosophy of continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. In 1994, Garland became the first roofing manufacturer in the United States to become ISO 9000 certified.
