"Our company has always been committed to the highest standards in manufacturing our products. However, to meet the challenges of a growing global marketplace and to ensure the highest quality to our customers and the people who use our health stations 500 million times each year, our manufacturing facility in Winchester, Tennessee underwent an intensive audit designed to make certain that our internal quality control mechanisms conform to international standards. Every procedure and protocol - from how we handle paperwork to our manufacturing operations - was reviewed to guarantee compliance with ISO certification requirements," said Tara McCoy, Senior Vice President of Manufacturing for Lifeclinic International in making the announcement. She added, "This certification effort demanded the participation and dedication of everyone here at our facility."
