TriStar Plastics Achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Quality Management of Custom Fabrication and Composite Bearing Manufacturing

SHREWSBURY, MA, (January 8, 2013) — TriStar Plastics announces it has earned the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) 9001:2015 certification for implementing quality management systems for the custom fabrication and manufacturing of composite self-lubricating bearing materials.

ISO 9001:2015 is an independently-reviewed quality standard with international recognition, and it designates TriStar’s custom fabricated and manufactured products as consistently meeting customer and regulatory requirements.

“The ISO 9001:2015 certification is the standard that defines quality, and we are proud to provide our manufacturing partners with further assurance that our bearings undergo a rigorous quality-control process,” said Richard Cedrone, CEO of TriStar Plastics. “Because we realize that in the industries we serve ― including construction, agriculture and railroad ― the quality of bearing materials has a direct impact on equipment uptime, production rates and ultimately, profits,” Cedrone cites.

ISO certification was issued by TÜV SÜD America, Inc., a premier inspection and technical service company for the industry, product and transport sectors. The certificate can be downloaded from our website.
