Leading electronic hardware, fastener and component distributor Hi-Tech Fasteners (HTF) recently announced that it has earned its first ISO certification in Canada.
Intertek, a 130-year-old leading quality assurance and control company certified by the ANAB (ANSI National Accreditation Board), awarded HTF’s newly expanded Canadian facility outside of Toronto its ISO 9001:2015 certification in November 2019, confirming the company’s status as a “Master Stocking Distributor and Service Provider of Leading Engineered Fastener, Component and Hardware lines specified by the Electronic, Telecommunication, Medical, and Defense Industries.” “The ISO 9001:2015 designation represents further assurance to our customers that HTF Canada has a stringent dedication to process, quality and continuous improvement.” says Steve Hill, GM of HTF Canada.
ISO, or the International Organization of Standardization, is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 164 national bodies (ISO). HTF met the rigorous international standards created by ISO to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services and systems.
HTF has continuously maintained its ISO certification in the United States since 1998. In addition to its U.S. and Canadian ISO certifications, HTF only represents industry-leading manufacturers who combine excellent product quality and superior customer service. Mark Mertz, COO of HTF says “I am proud, but not surprised, of the hard work and commitment to excellence displayed by our Canadian team members in order to gain this certification.”
