SUWANEE, Georgia, November 12th, 2016 – Durable label and die-cut adhesive manufacturer Tailor Label Products announced today that the company’s Suwanee, GA plant has now achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification. This demonstrates TLP’s ongoing commitment to providing customers with exceptional levels of quality products and services. TLP had originally secured ISO 9001 certification for its Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin plant in 2003.
ISO 9001:2008 certification confirms that TLP’s Atlanta facility has met all the ISO standards and requirements for the company’s Quality Management System.
Jeff Kerlin, President & CEO, remarked “Obtaining ISO certification is a rigorous process that requires months of preparation, reviews and audits. Achieving high levels of customer satisfaction and establishing processes for continuous improvement are important components of the ISO 9001:2008 certification process and align with the TLP’s commitment to excellence in the delivery of products and services.
“A great effort was put forth by our quality department and team at TLP Atlanta to earn the proud distinction of ISO 9001:2008 certification. We will continue to improve upon the delivery of label products and services to our customers in the southeastern United States as we seek to exceed customer requirements and expectations”, noted Kerlin.

SolidWorks is a 3-D modeling CAD software system that TLP frequently uses us make things easier for our engineering customers. Many of our more technical custom adhesive and labeling projects benefit from sophisticated modeling techniques.
As an example, TLP may be preparing a product to be placed on a gasket that has a layer of adhesive, a layer of foam as a protectant, another layer of adhesive, an under-liner and then a release layer. That can be difficult to show in 2-D, but Solidworks allows us to accurately show and model each layer.
In addition, SolidWorks software allows TLP engineers to be more creative and innovative during the design process, trying different design concepts before they are produced, which can significantly accelerate the design process and reduce costs.
The CAD models let the engineers that we supply part to, to test those parts in simulated real-world conditions to be sure the design is correct before the product is built.
“Since many of our items are auto applied, having precise measurements is crucial to ensure that the production line flows smoothly and there are no jams or mis-feeds. Each layer is clearly seen and modeled, as well as the thickness of each layer, so specific items can be adjusted before being manufactured,” says Jim Brown, a Senior Manufacturing Engineer at TLP.
“The 3D modeling & prototyping capability enhances the relationship we have with many customers as they can view their projects in a new way,” says Jim. “We see this as the future in many manufacturing applications, so we are working to stay ahead of the curve.”
