intertekFredonia, WI, May 31, 2017 – Guy & O’Neill Inc., a private label and contract manufacturer, is happy to announce we scored an unheard of 100 out of 100 points on our most recent audit with the Intertek Audit on April 18, 2017. The global average score is a 78 out of 100. 

The Intertek Audit is a Good Manufacturing Practice Assessment Report (GMP) which rates facility performance. Facility performance is an analysis on organization and personnel, facilities and equipment, material controls, production and process controls, and laboratory controls. The performance summary also includes packaging and labeling controls, non-conformance, change control, and document and records control. Between these sections, there were 171 questions. Guy & O’Neill received a 94 on their previous assessment on December 7, 2015 and an 87 on their very first Intertek Audit on December 8, 2013. 

To improve the audit score to 100 out of 100 means that Guy & O’Neill’s facility demonstrates control and compliance with applicable GMP regulatory requirements with high performance. “We scored an unheard of 100 out of 100 points. This is amazing! Auditors do not give perfect scores, but we received one. Yet another example of our outstanding performance, this time it is validated by an outside entity. Regardless of what this report states, we know that we are not perfect. We still have room to improve…and we will,” stated Tom Misgen, Guy & O’Neill’s President and Chief Operating Officer.
