We hope that this certification shall reaffirm to our customers, employees, distributors and the community our firm commitment to continuous quality improvement across all facets of HVR's business operations."

Added Ron Wills, Quality Assurance Manager, "The full commitment, participation and effort of our team were among the most critical elements to achieving certification. Our future plans involve further improvements to our Quality Management System, and transition from ISO 9001:2000 to ISO 9001:2008 by May 2010."
