Continental’s industrial hose plant in Granby, Quebec has received a major sanitary standards certification from 3-A SSI for a selected range of food and beverage hoses.

The 3-A SSI is an independent, non-profit organization that leads the development of standards for equipment and accepted practices for processing systems through a modern consensus processes based on ANSI (American National Standards Institute) requirements.

The certification No. 3727 and the designation 18-03 (for rubber and rubber like materials) received by Continental’s Granby plant places them in a unique category.

“There is a distinct difference between compliance and certification,” said Laszlo Dobo, Continental Product Manager for Industry Hoses in North America. “Anyone can claim ‘compliance,’ but certification comes only from an independent organization.  3-A SSI has very strict standards because they represent the end-users and the public. They provide special knowledge resources on hygienic equipment design to enhance professionalism and to serve the public health sector.”
