Powder Metallurgy parts manufacturer Clarion Sintered Metals, Ridgway, Pennsylvania, has been recognised by the SRI Quality System Registrar with the President’s Award for Commitment. According to the SRI, this award honours companies which have held continuous registration with the Quality System Registrar for twenty or more years.

“This is a great accomplishment for our employees and for our company,” stated Dave Bosnik, Vice President of Operations at Clarion Sintered Metals. “Our customers recognise us as a leader in continuous improvement. The award and certification are validation of our commitment to quality.”

In addition to this award, Clarion announced that it has recently received certification to the automotive industry’s new quality standard, IATF 16949:2016, in addition to recertification under the ISO 9001:2015. The company has two manufacturing facilities in Ridgway, both of which were previously certified to technical specification ISO/TS 16949:2009, which the revised IATF standard replaces.

Established in 1984, Clarion Sintered Metals is said to be one of the largest independently owned PM parts producers in the world. Specialising in high‐volume ferrous‐based manufacturing, the company offers a range of design solutions for automotive, industrial and agricultural applications.
