Ensuring Quality at Every Stage
Columbia Gear’s quality assurance programs have always been integral to our success. In 1994, we were among the first U.S. custom gearing suppliers to achieve ISO 9002 certification. Our ongoing leadership role within the gear industry is also evidenced by our ISO 9001 certification and a comprehensive TQM system including Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, and Value Stream Mapping.
Our Inspection capabilities include: Magnetic Inspection, Ultrasonic Inspection & Electrical Runout Inspection
In addition to these general quality program certifications, we meet the rigorous quality standards of the U.S. Military and leading OEMs serving markets worldwide. Our integrated Quality Assurance Program allowed us to be one of the first United States companies to embrace the stringent international automotive quality assurance practices and requirements of ISO/TS-16949 certification.
