PennWhite ISO 9001 Certification Renewed.

Earlier this month Intertek Certification carried out an in depth re-certification audit of PennWhite’s ISO 9001 Management Systems.

Afterwards Intertek were able to confirm that the policies and procedures in place at PennWhite remain in compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 and subsequently extended our certification for a further 3 years.

Technical Director Mark Humphries commented that "The principles and objectives of ISO 9001 are well entrenched within our business and even after all these years still help us to improve our products and service . ISO 9001 contunues to deliver benefits for both PennWhite and its customers, year after year."

PennWhite Certified Kosher For 14th Year.

Rabbi Kay from the Manchester Beth Din visited PennWhite on 17th April to perform his annual inspection of our Middlewich facilities.

PennWhite Offer In-House COD Testing

The recent expansion of PennWhite’s laboratory has enabled the business to create a Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) testing station on site.

COD tests are used to indicate the mass of oxygen consumed per litre (mg/L) of aqueous solution. Development Chemist Anthony Burgess explained further, “Essentially COD tests measure the amount of oxygen within a water based solution that is used during the breakdown of the active agent within that solution. This information can be very useful to customers who use a dilution of our product in their process or application.”

COD testing is available on request for the majority of the PennWhite product range, please contact our technical team for further details or to request a test.
