Sisk Earns Industry Accreditations for Sustainability, Fulfillment from MFSA
FEDERALSBURG, MD—Nov. 19, 2012—Sisk Fulfillment is proud to announce its recent award of not one, but two important industry accreditations: the Sustainability Accreditation and Fulfillment Accreditation. Both are offered by MFSA, the premier mailing and fulfillment industry organization.
“These accreditations are particularly tailored to the mailing and fulfillment industry, and include some very comprehensive criteria to attain prior to being approved,” says Bill Stevenson, director of communications and marketing for MFSA. “Sisk did a superb job of addressing every criteria in the program. The auditor commented that this was a very organized submittal and the onsite audits went very smoothly.”
MFSA Sustainability Accreditation is awarded to companies that meet a set of criteria for “practices and procedures in managing resources to promote environmental sustainability.” MFSA’s industry experts developed criteria consisting of 33 elements (nine required, 24 supplemental) in these areas:
- General Policies
- Materials and Materials Handling
- Production and Mailing
- Utilities Management
- Environmental Savings and Initiatives
“As a mailing and fulfillment service provider, we’re committed to protecting the environment and natural resources,” says Mikie Phillips, president of Sisk Fulfillment. “For years, we have been reducing, reusing or recycling packaging material, production material, print consumables, and other items. We also assist our customers in selecting environmentally conscious mailing and fulfillment services. This accreditation gives our customers the assurances they want when choosing Sisk as their fulfillment organization.”
Sisk Fulfillment also received the prestigious Mailing and Fulfillment Service Association accreditation. This program was in development for seven years by fulfillment industry leaders to help companies assess overall fulfillment operations. The accreditation criteria are based on 168 unique industry elements, and the accredited companies have an obligation to uphold the highest business standards in the fulfillment community.
MFSA asserts that, “the companies that comply with the stringent criteria will be recognized by the industry and customers as being part of a new class of companies who understand the value of world-class inventory control and accuracy, have a focus on quality and a proven continuous improvement plan, believe in training their employees at all levels, are contributing members of the fulfillment community and uphold the highest business standards in the industry.”
