Champion President Goran Haag said in the press release, “I am thrilled that we are able to add ISO 45001 to our list of ISO designations including 9001 and 14001. We value our manufacturing team and their health and safety in fulfilling our company’s mission. These certifications signal to others that we take seriously the safe and sustainable manufacturing of quality products.
