Additionally, in 2003, UniTech’s Springfield, MA location became the first of the UniTech plants to develop an environmental management system and receive certification to the ISO 14001 environmental standard. These quality environmental systems will continue to assure UniTech’s success in consistently providing quality services and products in an environmentally safe manner.
UniTech has operated licensed radiological laundries for nearly 50 years. Presently we have facilities licensed in nine (9) different agreement states. UniTech strives to be self regulating; our Corporate Health Physics Staff conducts rigorous compliance audits at each licensed facility annually.
