Kopp Glass, Inc. Announces ISO 9001-2008 Certification

Kopp Glass, the world’s leading manufacturer of precision molded, technical glass lenses, announced today that its Quality Management System has been certified as compliant with ISO 9001:2008 standards.

This certification marks a significant milestone for Kopp Glass and the company’s on-going efforts in continuous improvement. Our Quality Management System will serve as the foundation that we will build on to continually improve our value proposition to customers.”- Hugh Reed, Kopp’s Director of Technical Services.

Kopp’s custom engineered borosilicate lenses are found in products used throughout the world in many different industries.  They include aerospace, airports and anywhere that a harsh environment, such as heat, chemicals or abrasion, demands a precision crafted, durable glass lens. 

Becoming ISO certified was the next logical step to take in Kopp’s 85 year history in order to remain the industry leader in technical glass manufacturing.  “Because the business environment is changing, potential customers around the world are more selective than ever as far as qualifying and selecting the types of companies that they choose to partner with.  They want to conduct business with a stable, quality oriented company that focuses on continuous improvement and innovative design and development.”- Darin Bernardi, Kopp’s Sales Manager.

Offering registrations since 1995, P.R.I. is a quality systems registrar accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board.  Kopp selected P.R.I as the registration body because they are an active, reputable certification body for aerospace, environmental, and safety registrations and because Kopp is a major supplier of lenses used in the aerospace industry.
