Keen Receives ISO Accreditation
WILMINGTON, DELAWARE (May 12, 2020) – Keen Compressed Gas Co. is pleased to announce its receipt of ISO 17025:2017 accreditation from Perry Johnson Laboratory Accreditation, Inc.
Accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard is recognized as the highest quality standard in the world for testing and calibration laboratories. Accreditation determined Keen has implemented a quality management system, with personnel competent to perform testing and calibrations within the scope of accreditation.
In 2018, Keen Compressed Gas began construction on a new automated $6 million fill plant, which includes capabilities for industrial, medical, cryogenic and specialty gases. The plant is fully automated and driven by the latest technology. Cylinders are filled via a gravimetric process that guarantees accurate and repeatable specialty gases that customers can rely on. Completed in the fall of 2019, this state-of-the-art fill plant is now backed by the ISO accreditation.
“This investment in our business, our systems, and our personnel reaffirms Keen’s commitment to our customers.
