Inc., a manufacturer of concrete mixers, batch plants and refuse truck bodies, has been certified as meeting the newest ISO 9001:2000 standards. Less than 2% of the nearly 40,000 companies currently certified as meeting the International Organization for Standardization meet these new rigorous standards."Our customers are our bosses. And they depend on McNeilus for its commitment to quality. They insist on it," said Dan Lanzdorf, president of McNeilus. "That's why our entire engineering, manufacturing, sales and service processes are centered on producing products that take on some of the toughest jobs – pouring concrete and collecting refuse."McNeilus received its ISO 9001:2000 Certificate of Compliance on July 7. Certification was issued following multiple assessments of McNeilus' design, manufacturing and service functions for all three McNeilus product lines.McNeilus is among the first specialty truck body manufacturers to achieve this status. ISO standards are the worldwide benchmark for quality and are recognized in more than 90 countries. Certification provides public evidence of a company's internal discipline for quality. Oshkosh Truck is also certified to the ISO 9001: 2000 at its Oshkosh, Wis., production facilities, and at its subsidiary, Pierce Manufacturing Inc., the leading manufacturer of custom fire apparatus.
