Quality Standards

Our Quality Policy

The Surmotech team is committed to meeting our customers' quality requirements. We will achieve this goal through exceptional employees, customer satisfaction and operational excellence.

Quality Management System

Since securing lasting relationships with our clients is our primary goal, Surmotech has a Quality Management System in place and follows strict policies, processes and procedures. From quoting and development to final inspection, every product must meet rigorous criteria prior to shipment. At Surmotech, we're continuously striving to surpass the goals we have set for ourselves as well as the expectations of our customers.

  • We obtained our ISO 9002:1994 certification in September 1999 and, in January 2012, recertified our Quality Management System to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. 
  • Conflict Minerals Statement:  
  • The ESD control program at Surmotech complies with all the mandatory requirements of the ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard.
  • We're actively involved with IPC and are compliant with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) legislation. We have specialized equipment exclusively for RoHS products - and offer a suite of services to assist our clients in becoming lead-free compliant.
  • We proactively look for ways to secure inventory. Our KANBAN system and distributor support programs further ensure inventory will always be available. We also have bonding programs in place.
