Huntington Beach, CA, June 6, 2006 – Precision Resource, Inc., a leader in the supply of precision metal components manufactured with the fineblanking technology, today announced that its California Division has achieved Certification of ISO/TS 16949:2002 compliance.
ISO/TS 16949 is a quality management system standard for automotive related manufacturing companies. ISO/TS 16949 is a process-approach methodology with a focus on achieving customer satisfaction. This standard follows the outline of ISO9001:2000 with added automotive specific requirements.
“We have always strived to exceed our customers’ expectations and the QS/TS 16949 standard will help us to continue our focus on our customers’ requirements and improving our products and services,” said Robert Fitzgerald, Division Manager of the California Division. “We are very proud of the effort that the entire PR-CA team made to transition to our systems to comply with the QS/TS 16949 standard.”
Located in Huntington Beach, CA, the California Division specializes in the supply of high-volume fineblanked components, machined components, and assemblies. The division markets its products primarily to the automotive, electronics, and cutlery markets. The division employs a wide array of secondary finishing technologies, including grinding, lapping, welding, automated assembly, and CNC machining in order to supply complete ready to assemble component solutions to its customers.
Fineblanking is a high precision metal forming process used extensively in the automotive, heavy duty, electronics, medical, lawn and garden, and general industrial industries. This unique process creates parts with very tight dimensional tolerances, excellent flatness, and with very little variation from part-to-part throughout long production runs. These characteristics lead designers to specify fineblanked components for their most critical applications.
Precision Resource has seven production facilities in the United States and Canada. In addition to the facility in California, the company operates plants in Ft. Lauderdale, FL; Vernon Hills, IL; Mt. Sterling, KY; Cambridge, Ontario; Kitchener, Ontario; and Shelton, CT, which also houses the corporate headquarters and the Tool & Machine Division.
