- Case Studies
Our QA team has developed a wealth of seal quality expertise over the years. We’ve audited manufacturing plants in 3 continents. We know where and how escapes can happen at every step of the seal manufacturing process and what controls need to be in place and verified.
Our preference is to use PPAP as our gold standard for quality management methodology where the seal is mission critical for our customer.
We secured ISO 9001 registration in 2002, one of the very first in our industry to do so. We were an early adopter of the ISO 9001:2015 standard. We became certified to the IATF 16949:2016 standard in 2021 to support our Tier 1 automotive customers.
