Kleiss Gears announced its recent accreditation to ISO 9001.
According to Rod Kleiss, company president, the certification was necessary for several of the companys customers.
"We already had many of the requirements in place that ISO wants,"he says. "We document requirements, keep inspection records, maintain machinery on a scheduled basis, etc. ISO did force us to look at each individual task and put down in writing what we intend to do and how we intend to do it. There were some areas that needed attention, and Im not sure we would have discovered them so quickly without this process."
