Quality is our number one priority at Plastech. We work one-on-one with our customers to understand their requirements and establish controls throughout the entire production process to ensure quality expectations are met. Our dedication to quality has established many long-term and loyal partnerships with our customers.
Plastech is ISO 9001:2015 certified and has been ISO 9001 certified since 1994, boasting a mature Quality Management System (QMS). We also work with UL, CSA, and other regulatory bodies as required.
Plastech utilizes First Article Inspection Reports (FAIRs) and/or a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) to qualify initial product samples. These inspections are performed in our metrology lab which checks dimensional and cosmetic requirements per customer specifications. This information is provided to the customer for review and approval. Upon approval, the job is released for production. During production runs Plastech completes “In-Process” inspections per established Control Plan specifications. These inspections are completed within our IQMS ERP system which maintains the data and can provide Statistical Process Control (SPC) graphing for all prior inspections.
