(JBT Org.: Chicago) -- JBT Corp., a leading technology solutions provider to the global food, beverage, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries, is proud to announce its A&B Process Systems business unit has received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)'s 9001:2015 certification, the world's most widely recognized quality management standard.

This certification validates JBT’S commitment to relentless continuous improvement and its unique role as a full-service partner, providing solutions that exceed the quality expectations and requirements of its customers.

ISO 9001:2015 focuses on quality management systems and performance.

The certification enables operating efficiency, customer focus, and employee engagement, allowing organizations to provide high customer satisfaction and drive continuous improvements.

“The ISO implementation positions us to be more proactive with our risk mitigation—it focuses on preventive measures and standardized processes,” says Bruce Deemer, quality manager at A&B Process Systems. A&B Process Systems continuously strives to provide the highest standard of quality in our products, services, and solutions for each customer and sector we serve. The honor of being ISO 9001:2015-certified is proof that we are meeting that goal.”

Founded in 1973, A&B Process Systems is an industry leader in the design, fabrication, automation, and installation of stainless-steel process systems used in a variety of industries. The company was acquired by JBT Corp. in 2015, and serves customers in the food/beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical/personal care, bioenergy/ethanol, and chemical/industrial sectors.

“This accomplishment for A&B Process Systems is a true testament to the hard work of our team and will accelerate our ability to best serve our current customers and further expand critical sectors such as pharmaceutical,” says James Logan, president of A&B Process Systems. “Customers know A&B is focused on providing optimal quality, and we’re proud to continue to do so with this certification and following the ISO 9001:2015 standard.”
