Atlas Pressed Metals, DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, has been recognised by SRI for its twenty-year continuous association with the quality standards auditing company. During a recent in-house audit for the company’s IATF 16949 certification, SRI Auditor Robin Dudash presented Atlas President Jude Pfingstler with a ’20-year Crystal Award’ in honour of the occasion.

In addition to internal auditing for all quality, safety, and environmental standards, SRI, based in Seven Fields, Pennsylvania, offers a range of focused training courses and on-site training.

Christopher H Lake, SRI President, stated, “Atlas Pressed Metals and its employees are one of the distinguished few that has set the highest standards and excelled for more than two decades. [Their] commitment to quality and management systems demonstrates [their] dedication to meet and exceed customer expectations and continually strive for excellence.”

Robin Dudash has been visiting Atlas since 1996 as SRI’s lead auditor. Asked to describe Atlas Pressed Metals, she stated, “If I could sum it all up in one word, I would say, integrity.”

Since SRI started recognising clients for the 20-year recognition in 2014, they have awarded 96 companies for their continued commitment and relationship with SRI to date. On receiving the award, Pfingstler he was “both surprised and honoured” by the recognition.
