“Maintaining a strict level of quality, plant-wide, from the beginning of each project to the end has always been a priority for Service Stampings,” said Rob Stohlman, Vice President of Sales for the Willoughby-based metal stamping manufacturer.
While Service Stampings has received numerous quality awards from its customers, the company felt that ISO certification would be an important validation of its quality management system, he said.

ISO 9001 covers all aspects of a company’s activities, from initial contact with a customer or prospect through product delivery and on to customer service. “Our certification clearly demonstrates to our current and future customers that Service Stampings is committed to quality,” Stohlman said.
He noted that adhering to the ISO standard provides important benefits:
- Increased efficiency
