MELVINDALE, Mich. October 17, 2022 — Evans Distribution Systems, a provider of third-party logistics and supply chain solutions, added its seventh facility to its ISO 9001:2015 certification. This facility is located on Enterprise Drive in Allen Park, Michigan.
The ISO 9001:2015 certification provides the fundamental concepts and principles for quality management systems. These principles are applicable to any organization seeking a method for continuous improvement and to demonstrate that their product or service will meet customer expectations. All service areas and departments within Evans are involved in the certification process—requiring process improvements and performance reviews to be completed company-wide.
“Adding the Allen Park location under our certification is a testament to our people and their commitment to our customers and quality,” says Doug Ashley, Quality Systems Manager at Evans. “Through the auditing process, we have improved many of our practices including automating and digitizing our time sheets, improving on-time delivery performance, and implementing a digital check system to ensure order accuracy.”
The facility located on Enterprise Drive in Allen Park has 265,000-square-feet of warehouse space, 18 dock doors, and is rail-served by Union Pacific Railroad. It is located adjacent to I-94 and a few miles from the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport.
