As a commitment to quality and meeting stringent standards, Packers Plus achieved ISO 9001 certification for our manufacturing operations and our engineering research and design process at our manufacturing centres in both Edmonton, Alberta and Houston, Texas. We are also API Q1 certified at our Edmonton facility.
The award-winning Edmonton facility is more than 250,000 square feet, over 80% dedicated for the shop floor, and comprises manufacturing engineering personnel, component storage, automated and manual assembly, automated torque and testing, pressure testing, quality assurance, quality control, raw material procurement and an automated inventory rack system. The automated inventory system learns which items the assembly robots use most frequently and repositions inventory for quicker access. Automation ensures Packers Plus tools are built consistently and a high quality product is delivered to our customers every time.
Our Houston manufacturing facility is 88,000 square feet and is modeled after our manufacturing facility in Edmonton. These hi-tech facilities provide Packers Plus tools and systems for operations around the world. We have the ability to significantly increase production to meet the demand of all our customers through our extensive network of quality machine shops across North America.
Packers Plus has also developed partnerships with industry-leading vendors in coatings, threading and heat treating. This network of partners provides us with superior workmanship and skilled tradesmen who interact with our team on a daily basis. These strong relationships are a key aspect in our ability to meet and exceed customer demand.
