Clayton Obtains ISO 14001 for All Its Factories

Clayton, one of the largest home builders of modular and manufactured homes and builder of site-built homes, recently announced that all 36 of its home building facilities in existence in 2015 have attained ISO 14001 registration by implementing the sustainable building guidelines of the International Organization for Standardization.

One of Clayton's guiding principles states, "We will leave Clayton and the world better than we found them." It is no doubt this statement holds true as Clayton home building group became the first manufactured home builder in the U.S. among members of the Manufactured Housing Institute to receive the ISO 14001 certification when its building facility in Rutledge, Tenn., achieved the distinction during the first quarter of 2015.  

The company has since been working hard to have all of its home building facilities follow Rutledge's lead.  In 2015, the company made a commitment to have all 36 of its home building facilities ISO 14001 registered by the end of 2016 in order to promote greener building practices and builder safety. It has achieved that goal.

One facility purchased in 2016 has not yet attained the ISO 14001 certification, but will in the near future.
