BANGALORE: In this year 2013, Zuari Cement grinding centre in Chennai has won two unique recognitions in a row in the fields of quality and environment.
In January, it received the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system certification by NQA, a leading assessment, verification and certification body working in partnership with a wide range of businesses, government departments and organisations to help improve performance in quality, environment and health and safety management.
In April, it was the first unit in its area to be certified in compliance with the environment management system ISO 14001:2004.
These certifications represent a very important achievement for the Chennai plant also because they have been obtained in record time. As a matter of fact, the unit was commissioned in 2011 and it has been recognized as compliant with the ISO procedures within a very short period.
This multi-awarded grinding unit is situated in Attippattu, about 35 km from Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu state. It has a capacity of one million tons and is strategically located to serve the southern part of India.
