Jotun Philippines Inc., a local subsidiary of Jotun A/S, one of the world's top producers of paints and coatings based in Norway, has recently been awarded ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certifications for the following - 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems, 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems, a major feat made in just two years after the inauguration of its modern manufacturing plant in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.
Stamatis Solomokos, General Manager of Jotun Philippines Inc. said these certifications are further proof that the firm is serious in upgrading its already globally acclaimed facilities, plants and business processes to world’s best standards and practices.
“The Philippine market is important for us because we see good growth prospects in the future especially with the steady increase of investments in business areas where Jotun is relevant such as infrastructure, energy and marine,” he added.
In 2017, Jotun launched its first manufacturing plant in the country which costs more than a billion peso to build. The inaugural event was graced by no less than her royalty Princess Martha Louise of Norway and top officials of Jotun A/S including the owner/Chairman of the Board, Odd Gleditsch D.Y.
The local certifications were part of Jotun’s global certification initiative, awarded by Intertek, a global leader in quality assurance testing.
