This manual is an overview of the documented quality management system that is in place at SMI. The quality management system is designed to establish controls throughout the entire manufacturing process from sales proposals to product delivery and on through to customer acceptance. The Quality Assurance Program complies with all requirements of ISO 9001:2000, and may comply with other government and industry standards as applicable. Suburban Manufacturing, Inc. strives for continual improvement.

Customers, management and employees of SMI shall use this quality manual as the primary reference point for understanding the quality system. in addition there are procedures, work instructions and quality related forms that are part of the system. These documents describe how a process or requirement is performed and who is responsible for each action. All personnel are required to receive training in regard to these procedures, work instructions and the quality manual.

Scope: The following processes and operations are performed by/at Suburban Manufacturing and would fall under this control:

  • Metalworking: turning, milling, sawing, broaching, honing, finishing.
