Midwest Prototyping Achieves ISO 9001 Certification

BLUE MOUNDS, Wis., July 11, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — Midwest Prototyping, LLC, announced today its operations have been certified compliant with the ISO 9001:2015 standard, an internationally recognized achievement for operational excellence. One of the nation's largest additive manufacturers, it's the first independent service bureau to achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification.

"For us, obtaining ISO certification is a natural next step," said Steve Grundahl, President and founder of Midwest Prototyping. "As our operations and the additive manufacturing industry have continued to grow, we've seen an increasing number of production and end-use orders for printed parts. This [ISO 9001 certification] is a critical step to create a manufacturing facility for 3D printed, end-use products. If we are going to compete with traditional manufacturing processes, we need to meet them at their level."  

Midwest Prototyping has spent close to 18 months working to ensure its quality management system meets the extensive criteria associated with the standard, which centers on enhancing customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. National Quality Associates, Inc., an independent accredited registrar, verified Midwest Prototyping's compliance to the standard.

"At its core, ISO 9001 is a business improvement standard," explained Nate Schumacher, Project Leader and ISO 9001 implementation coordinator. "Realistically, what we've done is taken our existing QMS and reshaped it to let us take a closer look at our operations at every level, allowing us to improve them as we continue to grow."

Centered in Geneva, Switzerland, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental international organization which develops and publishes International Standards in collaboration with 163 national standards bodies. Its documentation provides guidelines that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.

Founded in 2001, Midwest Prototyping is one of the nation's largest independent additive manufacturing service bureaus. Named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies for the last 5 consecutive years, the Blue Mounds-based organization was recently a 2016 Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year award winner. Offering multiple 3D printing technologies, urethane casting, and extensive finishing services, Midwest Prototyping has consistently provided quality products and unrivaled customer support, enabling clients of all industries to make better parts, faster.
