CASA GRANDE, Ariz., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading commercial drainage company, ACO, has become the first and only drainage company to obtain NSF/ANSI 3A 14159-1-2014 certification for its products from NSF International - a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization which is a world leader in standards development, product certification, education and risk-management for public health and safety.
The NSF/ANSI 3A 14159-1-2014 standard refers to the hygienic requirements in food processing. This certification shows that the hygienic performance of ACO's drainage systems and products comply with the strict standards of the NSF. It shows ACO's ongoing commitment to very high standards of manufacturing and to research-led product development. All of ACO's hygienic floor drains, hygienic floor troughs and hygienic cast and ladder grates for the hygienic floor drains will now display the NSF certification mark.
Commenting on the certification, Vaclav Tikalsky, President of ACO Polymer Products, Inc. in the USA, said, "We are delighted to receive NSF certification for our products. ACO is committed to raising standards across every part of the hygienic drainage process to help food and drink manufacturers, foodservice outlets, healthcare facilities and operators of other hygiene-sensitive environments put hygiene first. We are committed to the very highest operational standards at all of our manufacturing facilities worldwide. NSF certification reflects this commitment to high standards throughout every part of our operations and also our commitment to championing improvements throughout our industry."
As a leading advocate of hygienic design, ACO also has EN 1253 and EN 1672 certification for its Hygienic Floor Drain and Hygienic Trench Drain product ranges and all products are CE marked. ACO's stainless steel drainage products apply hygienic design principles that are normally reserved for food contact surfaces - as listed in EN 1672 and EN ISO 14159. With a strong collaborative relationship with the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG), ACO also follows the best practice design principles of EHEDG documents numbers 8, 13 and 44 and was the first drainage manufacturer to become a member of EHEDG.
