Argent Associates, Inc. announced the successful achievement of their R2:2008, ISO 14001:2004, and OSHAS 18001:2007 certifications. This accomplishment is part of Argent Associates’ plan to integrate all quality standards into its business eco-system; Q.

“Argent is committed to continuously improving the quality of our products and services, as well as our employee quality user experience. Incorporating quality compliance into the business functions allows us to better protect our environment and improve the health and safety of our employees. We believe that quality at our fingertips facilitates a work environment that is clean, healthy, safe and fun. Not only is it the right thing to do, but with the ensuing initiatives both by corporations and government agencies alike, it’s a growth initiative for our business,” stated Ms. Manetta, Argent Associates President and CEO.

Argent completed its second round of quality enhancements to its business eco-system. It started with ISO9000 and TL9000 Quality Management System (QMS), now it has integrated Environmental, Recycling and Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) standards. R2 (Responsible Recycling) is the leading standard for the electronics recycling industry, setting a high bar for practices including data security, environmental practices, proper e-waste disposal, health and human safety, and the remarketing and reuse of IT equipment. In addition to the R2 Certification, Argent Associates also attained their ISO 14001:2004 and OSHAS 18001:2007 certifications. ISO 14001:2004 is an internationally recognized standard, providing organizations with tools to identify and control their environmental impacts and improve their performance. OSHAS 18001:2007 is a standard developed to help organizations control occupational health and safety risks.

“We wanted to convert quality conformance into real-time business quality management. Achieving these certifications was one of the major goals set for our company in 2015. This goal could not have been accomplished without the hard work and commitment shown by our employees. This achievement reflects our ongoing initiatives to redefine the business and better satisfy the requirements and expectations of our customers, suppliers and community. Q manages processes to ensure a healthy and safe work environment, while empowering our employees to become stewards for environmental protection, health and safety,” said Ray Moya, COO/CTO Argent Associates.
