Quality Systems

ISO 9001-2000

Goldens’ Foundry & Machine Company has been ISO certified since December of 1997 and is currently certified to the ISO 9001:2008 version of the Standard.  Our ISO program is based on the commitment by senior management to meet and exceed customer expectations and is maintained by frequent internal assessments and the employment of both “Lean Manufacturing” and “5S Program” techniques. Copies of our certificate are available to all current and prospective customers.

Quality Control

We effectively monitor each aspect of our production process to identify areas we can improve. In order to be a leader in ductile iron and gray iron castings, we must continually learn from our difficulties and accomplishments. Our dedication to continuos improvement guides our quality control department. Each department is audited at least twice during the calendar year. We ensure that processes are followed and quality objectives achieved. Corrective Action Requests are issued, as appropriate, based upon audit findings. We maintain a working body of knowledge, always accountable, so that we will improve. Management Review Meetings are held during the course of the year in order to verify that all aspects of our Quality System have been addressed.
Leadership meets weekly to discuss our tasks at hand, achievements in each department, and areas to improve. Likewise, department heads meet weekly with their teams to offer and solicit ideas for improvement.
