Welding equipment, supplies, and gases supplier Keen Compressed Gas has announced its receipt of ISO 17025:2017 accreditation from Perry Johnson Laboratory Accreditation, Inc.

Accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard is globally recognised as the highest quality standard for testing and calibration laboratories. 

The accreditation recognises Keen’s quality management system, with personnel competent to perform testing and calibrations within the scope of accreditation.

In 2018, Keen began construction on a new automated $6 million fill plant, which includes capabilities for industrial, medical, cryogenic and specialty gases. The plant is fully automated and driven by the latest technology.

Cylinders are filled via a gravimetric process that guarantees accurate and repeatable specialty gases that customers can rely on. Completed in 2019, this state-of-the-art fill plant is now backed by the ISO accreditation.

“This investment in our business, our systems, and our personnel reaffirms Keen’s commitment to our customers. We will continue to provide the industry with the highest level of testing and certification of industrial and specialty pure and multi-component gas mixtures,” said Bryan Keen, President of Keen Compressed Gas Co.

“This is another step toward our goal of being the best and most reliable supplier of specialty gases in our market.”
