True Position Manufacturing earns ISO 9001:2015 certification

Within its first year of business, True Position Manufacturing Inc. has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification.

Headquartered in Davenport, Iowa, True Position Manufacturing is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) that focuses on Lean Six Sigma manufacturing and fabrication of metal parts. The company offers a wide range of capabilities from CNC machining and lathe work to sawing and light-duty welding.

True Position Manufacturing opened its doors in February 2016. Earning ISO 9001:2015 certification within its first year of business marks a significant and aggressive milestone for the start-up company.

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. ISO 9001 is a standard based on the idea of continual improvement. The standard sets out the requirements for a quality management system, helping businesses and organizations to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. ISO 9001:2015 is the newest version of the standard, replacing the previous version, ISO 9001:2008.

As a Lean Six Sigma manufacturer and fabricator, True Position Manufacturing is focused on efficiency and continual improvement, which aligns directly with ISO 9001.

“Quality is extremely important to us and a differentiating value we provide for our customers,” said David Stires, president and co-founder of True Position Manufacturing. “Each one of our employees takes pride in their work, and being certified to ISO 9001:2015 is an additional reason our customers can be confident in partnering with us.”

True Position Manufacturing is actively involved with the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce and a supporter of Q2030, the region’s vision for retaining talent, growing jobs and the economy. The company is also part of the Quad Cities Manufacturing Innovation Hub, which helps businesses grow, diversify and stay competitive.

True Position Manufacturing was proud to serve as a sponsor for Olympic Steel’s annual Make-A-Wish event at Modern Woodmen Park in July. The Quad Cities River Bandits won the ballgame against the Clinton Lumberkings, and attendees also enjoyed a beer and wine tasting, silent auction, and raffle.

All proceeds benefited Make-A-Wish Iowa. A portion of the pre-purchased tickets helped grant the wish of Brandon, an 8-year-old from Clinton, Iowa, who is heroically fighting non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt lymphoma. His wish is to visit LEGOLAND®.

This is the 3rd year that Olympic Steel Iowa has partnered with The Quad Cities River Bandits to host its annual event. Along with True Position Manufacturing, sponsors for the event included: The Quad City Times, Nucor Steel Indiana, CRST Logistics, Alter Metal Recycling, Northwest Carpet One, R.I.A. Federal Credit Union, Chicago Tube & Iron and Classical Graphics.

This is the 13th consecutive year that Olympic Steel has teamed up with Make-A-Wish Iowa for its annual Working for Wishes campaign, where the company raises money to grant the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses. Since 2004, Olympic Steel has had the pleasure of granting the wishes of 100+ very special children through over $822,000 in financial contributions.

Kudos to Olympic Steel for another successful Working for Wishes campaign! True Position Manufacturing is honored to be part of such a caring community!
