AB Inflatables gains ISO certification

Colombia-based AB Inflatables announced it has earned ISO 9000 Certification.

ISO-9000 is a quality standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization. The primary objective of ISO-9000 is to act as a tool to improve the quality of products, services and operation while proving that quality is important to customers and employees.

"With this certification, we can guarantee to our customers that we are carefully measuring and controlling our production processes," president Ivor Heyer said in a statement. "We have improved lead times for delivery, maintained the highest quality standards in materials and production, and our customer satisfaction levels reflect their confidence."

AB manufactures 35 models of inflatables from 8 to 28 feet.
