ISO-9002 certification demonstrates continued commitment to manufacturing and service excellence


December 22, 2005 (Norristown, PA) – Philadelphia Gear, a full-service provider of gearing and power transmission solutions, announces the completion of ISO-9002 (2000 Standard) certification of its new Houston, TX Gulf Coast Regional Service Center’s quality management systems standards.


In the past 18 months, all five of PG’s regional service centers throughout the country have undergone NQA audits, leading to independent ISO certification or recertification at each individual facility. This is in addition to the corporate certification that is held by its company headquarters and technical center in Norristown.

“With the completion of the Houston ISO certification, all PG sites around the country are now certified, showing our dedication to the best business practices and manufacturing processes a company in this industry can implement,” says Rod Francis, Director of Quality for Philadelphia Gear Corporation. “Equally as important to our company, is the outstanding customer satisfaction component the ISO certification also stresses, once again emphasizing our commitment to our customers and their needs.”


Francis continues, “At PG, we are continuously striving to improve our audit process as well as the quality system, including the quality manual and all supporting materials such as, online Standard Operating Procedures, Engineering standards and Quality Assurance Programs.”


ISO-9002 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization:


1. Needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable regulatory requirements, and

2. Aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable regulatory requirements.


“With the recent opening of our new, larger state-of-the-art Houston facility, PG is confident we are better able to serve our customer’s needs,” comments Carl Rapp, President and CEO, Philadelphia Gear Corporation. “The new facility is located, literally, in the backyard of the HPI sector and allows us to provide a more complete range of services to our Gulf Coast customers.”
