PORTLAND, Oregon—(March, 2021)— ZincFive, the world leader in nickel-zinc (NiZn) batteries and solutions, today announced that its battery manufacturing facilities have achieved ISO 9001 certification, which it uses to produce Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certified products. ISO 9001 is the global gold standard for manufacturing quality control systems.

“With increased penetration of batteries into the markets ramping production to record levels, battery quality has become more important than ever, particularly in mission critical applications. End-users need confidence that the scaling of battery manufacturing to meet this demand is being done with strict quality control in mind,” says Jeff Phillips, ZincFive VP Operations & Technology and Managing Director. “By adhering to the stringent ISO 9001 and UL standards, customers can have confidence in ZincFive’s manufacturing processes as well as our ability to scale production, while maintaining world class quality control.”

The ISO 9001 certification is the world’s most popular quality management system standard based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, leadership, process approach, and continual improvement. By meeting ISO 9001 standards ZincFive has proven itself to deliver consistent, good-quality products and services to its customers[1].

In addition to the prestigious ISO 9001 certification, ZincFive adheres to stringent UL testing standards. As part of this process, UL reviews ZincFive’s manufacturing facilities on a periodic basis to ensure ongoing observance to UL product certification requirements, which are used to assess products, test components, materials, systems and performance[2].

Tod Higinbotham, ZincFive COO said “At a time when all of our target markets are increasing their demand for batteries due to the continued need for global electrification, this is an extremely important achievement for ZincFive. The proven ability to manufacture to the global gold quality standard will help set us apart further from the competition as more industries make the shift to reliable and sustainable battery power technologies.”
