PCI Plant Certification is your only practical means of confirming that a manufacturing plant has an ongoing quality assurance system in place.
With this program the plant must consistently demonstrate their commitment to quality principles and practices. A 120-point audit examines all aspects of the plant operation including engineering practices and management commitment.
Numerical grading is uniform coast-to-coast and large plant to small. Independent engineers make the appraisal. Grades are non-negotiable. Failures require a thorough review of improvements with an extra audit within 60 days.
But most plants don't fail. They're committed to doing it right the first time, on time, every time.
Without PCI Plant Certification, there's no assurance that a plant has any quality commitments or controls in place, much less a program approved by an entire national industry; a program that has continued to grow and develop since its inception more than 35 years ago.
You can join a peer group with other producers outside your marketing area thus providing a forum for helping to solve production and day-to-day operational problems. This collective knowledge of peers with secular interest offers precedence as a guide and helps assure your success.
PCI Plant Certification is your assurance of confirmed capability, and a commitment to quality.
