What are ISO certifications?
ISO refers to the International Organization for Standardization. The story of ISO began in 1946 at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London where delegates from 25 countries met to discuss the future of International Standardization.
ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization that bring together experts to share knowledge and develop standards supporting innovation and providing solutions to global challenges*. An ISO certification, therefore, certifies that a company runs to one of the international standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization.
As mentioned above, we are currently certified on two systems – quality and environment. For more information about these standards, check out the links below.

Nordic Grafting Company (NGC) was founded almost five years ago as a wholly-owned affiliate of the Bjørn Thorsen Group (BTG). The company is utilizing ExxonMobil’s patented Vistamaxx™ performance polymers technologies, under global license granted to BTG, to develop and commercialize superior compatibilizers. Acti-Tech compatibilizer products are for instance used as performance boosters for recyclates and coupling agents for wood plastic composites.
NGC recently expanded in the Asia-Pacific area, via Nordic Grafting & Compound Solutions (NGCS), a production and commercialization joint venture, set up in late 2019 together with its sister company, Customized Compound Solutions (CCS) and Chongqing Techxanadu Industrial Co.td. (TechXanadu).
