LA PORTE, TEXAS (February 8, 2005) - Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips Chemical) announced today that its RytonŽ PPS Compounding Facility in La Porte, Texas has achieved Global Automotive Quality System ISO/TS16949:2002 certification.ISO/TS16949:2002 certification expands upon the requirements of ISO 9001:2000 to include standardized technical specifications and a quality system approach applicable to the worldwide automotive industry. "As a supplier of high performance engineering thermoplastics to the automotive industry, this certification emphasizes our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction," said RytonŽ PPS Product Manager, Bob Goodman.
