The Case IH tractor plant in Racine, Wis., was recently accredited with ISO 50001 certification for energy management. The certification is intended to provide organizations with the framework for integrating energy practices into their management procedures.
To achieve ISO 50001 certification, the Racine tractor plant was audited by a third-party firm, UL-DQS, which recommended the plant to the American National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Under its current energy management system, the plant will continue to improve its energy efficiency and has formalized its process, tools, roles and responsibilities to ensure the system’s sustainability.
“This accreditation for ISO 50001 recognizes the Racine plant’s continuous improvement in energy efficiency and Case IH’s long-term commitment to reducing its environmental impact,” says Steve Tyler, Racine plant manager. “This certification is another testament to this world-class manufacturing facility and can be a source of pride for our employees and the community.”
The ISO 50001 certification for energy management is the Racine plant’s fourth certification. It also has been certified ISO 9001 for quality management systems, ISO 14001 for environmental efficiency and OHSAS 18001 for health and safety. The plant was also named a "Plant of Excellence" by Societe Generale de Surveillance (SGS), a leading company in inspection, verification, testing and certification.
The Racine plant is home to the Case IH Magnum Series tractors and also produces transmissions and final drives for Axial-Flow combines and Module Express cotton pickers, cabs for the Patriot sprayers, and axles and valves for Steiger Series tractors. For more information, visit www.caseih.com.
