Erie Press Quality Certifications
Erie Press System's commitment to quality stretches all the way back to our beginnings in 1895. We have come a long way since then, but we maintain the same values when building 15,000 ton presses that we did when we were producing gray iron castings. Erie presses represent the best in quality. We build presses that have longer services lives, require less servicing and can be serviced easily when it does become necessary. Moreover, state-of-the-art controls and superior craftsmanship make Erie built presses some of the most precise machines available.
Promising quality is one thing, but at ERIE Press Systems we have had policies in place since the 1980s in order to guarantee it. Since then, our quality management and continued improvement systems have helped us to define and achieve quality in all aspects of our work.
It all starts with the quality management team for ERIE Press Systems. They meet several times a year to set well-defined continuous improvement goals for the entire company. These goals are outlined for our senior management as well as for all Erie Press System employees, ensuring that everyone understands and works toward the same goals.
The quality management team also reviews past performance, and when necessary undertakes corrective action to make sure we continue to improve the quality of our work. The team is also constantly reevaluating the meaningfulness of our measurements so that ERIE Press Systems is always working toward worthwhile goals.
The results of all this work are self-evident in our presses, but they have also led to our ISO 9001-2000 quality certification. This certification represents recognition of the commitment we have always made to deliver the best quality presses to our customers. We are also currently working toward achieving ISO 9001-2008 quality certification, and should have it by fall 2009. At ERIE Press Systems our continuous improvement efforts are always ongoing so that we can always deliver the best presses in the business.
