SAI Global issued the certificate of registration on June 19, 2018 consequent of their in-depth four-day on-site transition audit earlier in the month.  No non-conformances were identified.  Positive aspects noted by the auditor included:

  • All employees interviewed were knowledgeable and understood how their work impacted commitment to the Quality Policy.
  • Production area demonstrated excellent housekeeping. Work stations, complete with monitors for access to email and drawings [models]. New press for the molding area and refurbished grinders were all excellent improvements.
  • Congratulations on meeting your Quality Objectives for last fiscal year.
  • Paulson Room (training software for plastic injection molding) was most impressive, with ability to monitor completion rate of 40hrs/employee.
