We ensure that our manufacturing and processing quality performance meets or exceeds customer expectations.
All Vertex Precision Manufacturing sites’ business strategies have customer satisfaction at the core. So, we have fully integrated our AS9100C / ISO 9001:2008 certified Quality Management System (QMS) into the corporate business management system.
The overarching Vertex Business Management System (VMS) drives operational excellence into all aspects of the corporation. This ensures that our customers’ needs and requirements are properly identified and converted into products and/or services, all while complying with statutory and regulatory requirements in a cost effective manner.
Our “VMS” encompasses all of the traditional aspects of a QMS which results in exceptional product integrity and on-time delivery, at a highly competitive cost. Our QMS is robust enough to stand alone, yet flexible enough to accommodate specific customer requirements.
Vertex companies operate under the philosophy that product integrity is an integral responsibility of the individual fabricating the product or providing the service. Every site’s Quality Inspection Department resides in a temperature controlled inspection area, which is fully equipped with a vast range of standard, conventional, mechanical inspection gauges and measuring equipment.
The equipment is calibrated to NIST standards and comply with the ISO 10012 standard. High-precision Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) are used by Quality Inspection to perform independent verification of features using the solid model via the CMM. Each solid model is verified to its partner drawing in order to prevent modeling errors.
Vertex companies employ a variety of tools and programs which ensure that Quality and efficiency is built into the process, including:
- Quality Inspection Plans
- Lean Manufacturing Practices
- Kanban & Dock to Stock Programs
- Material, Document & Process Controls
- Continuous Improvement Program
