Cullman, Alabama based Rusken Packaging Inc. announced that its Great Southern Industries (GSI) division in Jackson, Mississippi, is now ISO 9001:2015 certified. Beginning this project in January of 2022, the company strived to implement guidelines that adhere to the ISO standards by their September 26, 2022 audit deadline.
As a Quality Management System (QMS), the ISO certification encompasses document control and planning, management responsibilities, utilizing resources, product realization, corrective and preventative actions, as well as risk management. To better serve its customers and partners, achieving this certification allows for continual improvement processes, as well as greater standardization of policies and procedures.
These focused efforts support Rusken’s quality policy and efforts to ensure that its customers receive the highest quality products, which encompasses everything from the raw materials to the manufacturing processes, and ultimately, the final delivered product.
GSI represents Rusken’s second ISO-certified facility. Rusken was founded by Bobby Rusk in 1974, and today operates 17 facilities in eight states.
In recent years, Rusken has announced several acquisitions, including Select Products Inc. in Manchester, Tennessee; D&D Packaging Inc. in Olive Branch, Mississippi, in 2022; and Nelson Packaging of Cowpens, South Carolina, in 2021.
