The article reports that more Hickory Springs Manufacturing Co. facilities will become ISO-9000 certified in 2007 in the U.S. ISO-9000 focuses on quality management, including what an operation does to meet regulatory standards and the quality requirements of customers. The company's foam plant in Commerce, California, will be registered under an ISO program. Its Fort Smith, Arkansas, tube mill will join the ISO fold in October 2007. Three other facilities are slated for implementation in 2008.
