Solution

High Purity NE engaged with Polaris MEP to support the ISO Certification preparation process. Sales growth was supported by solid business processes, required as their manufacturing processes became more complex, but the company lacked experience with the requirements of ISO 9001 certification. The Polaris MEP team includes a former employee from one of the largest global 3rd party ISO auditors. This expertise was critical to support the High Purity NE preparation process in a highly efficient manner – generating only that documentation critical to the certification. The Polaris MEP team engaged with the High Purity management team to complete the Quality Manual and supporting documents, auditor trainings, and management reviews. The documentation supported existing business processes and confirmed their quality without adding unnecessary overhead. High Purity NE became ISO 9001:2008 certified for the design, development, manufacturing, and distribution of disposable assemblies. The Polaris MEP team was instrumental in supporting the High Purity NE ISO certification which, in turn, led to a $300k opportunity and future related growth opportunities.
