While Universal Photonics has always operated under strict standards, certification of the Central Islip facility completes the goal of company-wide ISO 9001:2015 certification. UPI’s Vernon, NY facility, JH Rhodes, certified since 2001, was the first New York manufacturer of precision surfacing materials to achieve ISO 9001 certification.
