As a premier manufacturer of molded silicone and thermoplastic components, PTG Silicones continues to showcase its commitment to excellence through FSSC 22000 certification.

Adhering to the rigorous requirements of the Global Food Safety Initiative, FSSC 22000 meets the highest standard of international food industry acceptance with worldwide recognition by all pertinent Accreditation Bodies. Notably, FSSC 22000 is supported in the U.S. and abroad by organizations like the American Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA, now known as the Consumer Brands Association) and FoodDrinkEurope (FDE).

As a FSSC 22000 certified organization, PTG is now free to utilize its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to meet all direct food contact packaging requirements, including the essential areas of Food Fraud Prevention, Food Vulnerability, Food Safety, and Pest Management. With world-class equipment—including Arburg® molding, Stäubli® robotics, and Mitutoyo® video CMM—and a class 100,000 cleanroom, there is a solution for any possible problem. After meeting and exceeding the high standards of FSSC 22000, PTG has committed to the ongoing expansion and refinement of its FSMS processes.

“We are a better organization because of the process that led to certification. Applying our expertise in materials and manufacturing automation to a FSMS has made us a stronger and more valuable partner to existing and future customers.
