John Evans’ Sons has been granted ISO 13485:2003 re-certification for the manufacture of standard and custom spring products, wire forms and spring reel products for the medical device industry. This is in addition to ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100C (aerospace). This places John Evans’ in a very prestigious category as only a handful of spring manufacturers in this country have achieved all three ISO certifications.
ISO 13485:2003 is the established quality standard for manufacturers of finished medical devices and/or critical components within a medical device platform. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the world’s largest developer and publisher of international standards for the implementation of quality management systems and various other technical and operational procedures.
According to Bob Catlett, Sales Manager, “being recognized for our rigorous approach to developing and manufacturing our products gives John Evans’ customers further reason to trust their critical medical designs to us”.
“Our decision to become ISO 13485 certified was fueled by our long established history for providing our customers with the best spring products in the medical device industry,” states Sam Davey, Co-President. “Our certification to this standard further confirms to the international community that our products are manufactured with the highest level of traceability and quality control.”
