We congratulate Dave Russell on 24 years of dedicated service and success and wish him all the best as he heads off into “retirement”. Dave has been in the label printing industry for more than 30 years and was instrumental in helping start CLI as one of its original owners. It was calculated that Dave had most likely been involved in well over 50,000 quotes in his 24 year tenure at Commerce Label. Dave’s plan includes consulting for CLI, gardening, spending time with his children and family and “taking naps” when and wherever he wishes.
We wish Dave all the best and once again thank him for an unbelievable ride!
Commerce Label Inc. is well on its way to achieving the quality “Gold Standard”–ISO certification! Due to the customer demands and assurances of our mission statement, CLI is working hard to achieve the ISO 9001:2008 certification and has recently completed its second Third Party Audit engaged to help meet the certifications rigid requirements. Along with the pre-audits, which helps to analyze the status of our QMS (Quality Management System), CLI has also revised its company Quality Policy manual which includes reviewing all procedures, work instructions and various form documents. CLI has also held several employee training sessions verifying employee quality understanding and revisions to the quality documents.
And last, but certainly not least, CLI has re-written its quality policy statement: “Commerce Label, Inc will maximize customer satisfaction by delivering quality products, on time, and with a concerted effort towards continuous improvement.”
All this effort toward improving our quality process has been led by CLI Quality Manager Brian Rezac. Give Brian a call anytime if you wish to discuss our quality standard and promise. Brian and the whole Commerce Label Inc. team can be reached at 763-533-2226.
