In November of 2013, PMI was awarded the very first San Diego Workforce Improvement Bureau (WIB) Grant, to assist in facilitating their ISO and AS9100 certification. Over the next year, PMI refined its existing quality policies and practices and in December of 2014, they received their ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100C certification from DNV.
As standard practice our company keeps meticulous records of conformance for all raw material, processing services and load-tested purchased goods in addition to certifications for all parts load tested in-house.
