Rail Component Division of White Systems is now White Rail

The board of directors of White Systems, Inc. has voted to accept an offer for the purchase of the assets of White Systems’ Rail Component line.

Under the terms of the offer, DureX Inc. (Durex) has assumed the manufacturing and sales of White Systems’ branded slick-rail components, which will now go under the brand “White Rail”. Durex, a privately held ISO 9001 registered manufacturer founded in 1946, has an extensive history providing products through high-quality metal stamping, sheet metal fabrication, CNC vertical machining, powder-coat painting, electro mechanical assembly, and finished products located in Union, New Jersey.

“These slick-rail components mesh well with our existing synergies as a turnkey contract manufacturer of sheet metal and custom components. Durex has long had a commitment toward forming professional, mutually beneficial relationships with our customers. Combine that with more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing stamped parts and assemblies, and the system is already in place that will allow us to reliably provide slick-rail components, assemblies, and systems to enable our clients to be as successful as they can be.” said Robert Denholtz, Durex President/CEO.

White Rail’s goal is to become the preferred slick-rail brand competitively and consistently providing high quality parts for that time critical project. Due to Durex’s large-scale production capacity and expertise, they can custom design products to meet their client’s every need. Adding White Rail’s product line with Durex’s pre-existing manufacturing facility will create a unique environment for slick rail systems and their providers. BOTTOM LINE: Working with White Rail will deliver consistently high quality products while we work together, manufacturer and integrator, to secure that next project.

ISO 9001 Quality Standards

ISO 9001 Quality Standards

White Rail’s products are all made to the same standards as their parent company Durex, Inc, which is ISO9001 certified.

ISO is a family of standards for quality management systems. ISO 9000 is maintained by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization and is administered by accreditation and certification bodies. The rules are updated, as the requirements motivate changes over time. Some of the requirements in ISO 9001:2008 (which is one of the standards in the ISO 9000 family) include

  • A set of procedures that cover all key processes in the business
  • Monitoring processes to ensure they are effective
  • Keeping adequate records
  • Checking output for defects, with appropriate and corrective action where necessary
  • Regularly reviewing individual processes and the quality system itself for effectiveness
  • Facilitating continual improvement

ISO 9001 is implemented by organizations in 176 countries and has become the global benchmark for quality management systems (QMS). The standard is used as a framework for providing assurance about the supplier’s ability to satisfy quality requirements and ISO 9001 certification is often a market requirement for suppliers to participate in supply chains or to bid for procurement contracts. It is also widely used as a marketing argument by companies selling goods or services to consumers.

Quality is a “culture” – ISO 9001 “Quality” is an important accreditation to achieve, it is also essential for maximum benefit that information is shared so that the culture of the business ensures that the Quality culture is embedded throughout the entire company.
