HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past year, GMI Group has continued to build on its already high standards for quality and aggressively expanded its manufacturing capabilities. The company's commitment to quality has allowed the team to quickly break into the aerospace and tooling industries, increase their production capacity, and obtain newly updated certifications far ahead of schedule. This includes earning the ISO 9001:2015, API Q1, and AS9100, which are comprehensive standards for customer-focused quality management systems.
"Quality is the backbone of our business, and our industry certifications are a reflection of our way of life here at GMI," said David Moore, President and CEO of GMI Group. "Now we are taking that a step further for our customers."
The leadership at GMI Group has focused on increasing their internal investments to build a strong culture centered on ensuring safety and continuing to raise product standards. Among many other improvements, warehouses have been upgraded and employee-driven safety meetings have been implemented. The company has also invested in new management systems software to support diligence in regulatory compliance, certifications, and industry licenses. Additionally, more quality assurance team members have been hired at both manufacturing plants. This includes Eric Berger, who oversees and improves processes as the Quality Assurance Director. His extensive experience as an auditor and quality manager will further ensure that each product that leaves the company's facilities is up to the highest standards for quality.
"We've put the right people and tools in place to continue delivering quality products on time to meet our customers' needs," said Akil Bacchus, the Regional Sales Director. In just one year following the organization's efforts for continuous improvement, the team has earned six new certifications for their manufacturing plants in Texas and Louisiana. The company is continuing to bid on aerospace opportunities and build relationships in the industry to support growing manufacturing needs.
