ANSI Welcomes New Members

New York, Mar 31, 2003

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), a private non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardization and conformity assessment system, proudly welcomes the seven new members that joined the Federation during March 2003. The six companies and one educational institution were among the first to join the Institute under a new market-based membership structure that ties investment directly to the level of service and involvement dictated by the specific and unique needs of each member.

The new members include:

Zebra Technologies Desktop Printer: Zebra delivers bar code and specialty label printing solutions to businesses and governments in 90 countries around the world.

WELBRO Building Corporation is a full-service construction management/general contracting company primarily in the hotel/hospitality market with over 35,000 rooms in their portfolio.

Copley Controls, Inc. produces high power amplifiers and high performance motion solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in the semiconductor, medical, pharmaceutical and automated assembly/inspection industries.

Northwest Lineman College provides various elements of power delivery training to over 2000 individuals from across the US and Canada.

Fellowes, Inc. produces mobile, computer and consumer electronics accessories.

Northstar Financial Solutions Group of Ennis: Northstar Computer Forms, Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets internal bank forms, negotiable documents, and custom business forms and services.

Philips Medical Systems has a product line that includes technologies in X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, tomography, radiation oncology systems, patient monitoring, and resuscitation products.

"ANSI membership provides maximum flexibility and value,” said John Kalemkerian, the Institute's vice president of membership, communications and education. Members choose the level of access they desire and select from an extensive collection of service, benefits and ‘a la carte’ options."

ANSI’s mission is to enhance U.S. global competitiveness and the American quality of life by promoting, facilitating, and safeguarding the integrity of the voluntary standardization system. ANSI is the official U.S. representative to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and, via the U.S. National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ANSI currently has offices in New York City and Washington, DC.
