Sauget, IL (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
FW Warehousing, a Warehousing and Distribution leader, recently announced that its annual inspections by AIB International recently took place in late December 2010 at the firm’s facilities in Centreville, Illinois and on Bond Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois. The result: FW Warehousing was able to maintain its Superior AIB rating at both facilities.
“We’re very proud of the work the entire team at FW does to maintain such high standards for our customers,” said Mike Cusumano, Safety and Compliance Officer for FW Warehousing. “This year the AIB implemented an even more stringent rating system. Faced with these stricter standards many companies dropped from a Superior rating to an Excellent rating this year, but we were not one of those companies.”
“Maintaining our Superior AIB rating is a responsibility we take very seriously,” added Mark Cusumano, President and CEO of FW Warehousing. “FW was founded as a professional public warehouse for food and food-grade additives. It’s one of our core strengths. Keeping our Superior rating is vital to our entire warehousing and distribution business.”
AIB International is a pioneer and leader in food safety auditing and education. AIB audits are backed by more than 60 years of expertise in the field of food manufacturing, beverages, ingredients and packaging. AIB conducts audits in more than 120 countries worldwide for firms ranging in size from giant multinationals to small independent producers.
For 2010, AIB put in place a new audit process and scoring system in conjunction with their new updated standards. Only facilities scoring in the top 25 percent of all scores in their business category are awarded a “Recommendation of High Achievement – Superior”. As you would expect from a leader in the field of warehousing and distribution, FW Warehousing maintained its Superior rating, as it has on a continual basis.
FW Warehousing has been a mainstay in St. Louis Warehousing for more than 40 years. It currently serves local, regional and national customers with warehouse distribution centers in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, totaling more than 2.5 million square feet.
