SRI Quality System Registrar (SRI) has awarded Doe Run Co.’s Resource Recycling lead facility in Boss, Missouri, with its President’s Award for Commitment. Doe Run is a lead mining and producing company headquartered in St. Louis.

According to a news release, Doe Run was recognized for continuously maintaining International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification for the last 20 years. The lead recycling and secondary lead production facility holds ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications, which recognize standards for continuous improvement in product quality and environmental management systems, respectively.

“A company’s quality management system certification provides evidence to customers, suppliers, employees and its community of its commitment to producing a quality product and providing customer satisfaction,” says SRI President Christopher Lake. “The Doe Run Co. and its employees at the Resource Recycling facility are among the distinguished few that have set the highest standards and excelled for more than two decades.”

“Maintaining our ISO certifications ensures we meet our commitments to quality products and services,” says Bruce Chamberlain, operations manager of Doe Run’s Metals Division. “SRI has been a great partner, and the annual audit process has helped us build a culture and framework to continue to adapt and improve.”

Doe Run’s Resource Recycling facility serves secondary lead metals customers and the battery manufacturing industry. The plant recycles close to 175,000 tons of refined lead-containing products per year. The facility operates a hammermill to break down batteries, furnaces to smelt recycled lead material and secondary lead refining and casting facilities.
