With ISO certifications, Americhem provides you with the peace of mind of working with a company that values quality, safety and process control.

ISO 9001

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an internationally recognized quality systems standard organization. ISO 9001 is the model for quality assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing. Americhem's first manufacturing site was registered to ISO 9001 in April, 1994.

All of our manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001:2008 certified, achieving the standard's requirements on the first audit:

• Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
• Concord, North Carolina
• Liberty, North Carolina
• Mansfield, Texas
• Dalton, Georgia
• Manchester, United Kingdom
Suzhou, China

ISO/TS (Technical Specification) 16949:2009

Automotive Quality System Requirement

The ISO/TS 16949:2009 was jointly developed by the IATF members and submitted to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for approval and publication. The document is a common automotive quality system requirements catalog based on ISO 9001:2009, AVSQ (Italian), EAQF (French), QS-9000 (U.S.) and VDA6.1 (German) automotive catalogs.

Our Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and Manchester, United Kingdom automotive manufacturing plant are certified to the ISO/TS 16949:2009 standard.


ISO 14001

ISO 14000 is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organizations (a) minimize how their operations (processes, etc.) negatively affect the environment (i.e., cause adverse changes to air, water, or land); (b) comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and (c) continually improve in the above.

ISO 14000 is similar to ISO 9000 quality management in that both pertain to the process of how a product is produced, rather than to the product itself. As with ISO 9000, certification is performed by third-party organizations rather than being awarded by ISO directly. The ISO 19011 audit standard applies when auditing for both 9001 and 14001 compliance at once.

Our Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and Suzhou, China manufacturing plants are certified to the ISO 14001 standard.


ISO 13485

ISO 13485 is an ISO standard, published in 2003, that represents the requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices. 

Our Suzhou, China manufacturing plant is certified to ISO 13485:2003.
