RIKER PRODUCTS CERTIFIED AS AN ISO 9000 APPROVED SUPPLIER BY VOLVO/GM

 RIKER PRODUCTS CERTIFIED AS AN ISO 9000 APPROVED SUPPLIER BY VOLVO/GM
 TOLEDO, Ohio, March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Riker Products, Inc., one of the country's best-known manufacturers of heavy-duty exhaust systems and air inlet components, has received an ISO 9000 certificate of registration and is approved as a Class "A" supplier by Volvo/GM, a major world-wide producer of trucks.
 The ISO 9000 standards address the preformance of total quality management systems. First published in 1987 by the International Standards Organization, ISO 9000 was drafted to respond to the need for uniform quality standards among members of the European Economic Community. Since that time, the standards have been adopted world-wide, particularly by companies involved in international marketing. The U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. based manufacturing companies also have endorsed the ISO 9000 standards and the U.S. military has adopted them as a replacement for Mil-Q-9858A.
 Registration as an ISO 9000 APPROVED SUPPLIER follows a rigorous auditing process that includes management responsibility; quality system; contract review; design control; document control; purchasing; purchaser supplied product; product identification and traceability; process control; inspection and testing procedures; inspection, measuring and test equipment; inspection and test status; control of nonconforming product; corrective action; handling, storage, packaging and delivery; quality records; internal quality audits; training; servicing; and statistical techniques.
 Riker CEO Philip C. Meuser, commenting on the company's ISO 9000 registration, said, "Our people worked hard for this recognition, but the effort and investment were certainly worth it. It's one thing to talk about world-class quality, but by achieving our ISO 9000 registration, we feel that Riker products are now acknowledged to be among the best available anywhere."
 Riker offers more than 60 years of engineering experience in the design and manufacture of heavy-duty mufflers, air inlet/delivery systems and exhaust systems, including related accessories and components.
 Since June of 1990, the company has been a member of The Brenlin Group, a widely-diversified Akron, Ohio, based management firm that includes 17 manufacturing companies involved primarily in the areas of steel production, metal stampings, axles and brakes, and a wide range of diversified products.
