ISO 9001 Certification

Midland Metal Products is proud to announce that it will be seeking ISO 9001:2008 certification of our quality management system.

An internal project team is already working on reviewing our policies and procedures and preparing for our eventual audit. We fully expect to achieve this certification in 2011.

More information about this initiative will be available as the project moves along. This is the next logical step in ensuring that we meet and exceed our customer expectations on each and every project.

Winter of 2010 Midland Creativity Contest

The winner of the 2010 Midland Creativity Challenge is the Cormark Engineering Department.

The premise of the contest was to invite the industry to challenge our sophisticated CNC equipment with their most creative design and to have a little fun. The Cormark Engineering Department answered the call. See below for their entry – a 100% recyclable Christmas tree. The elements of the Christmas tree demonstrate our various production capabilities – tree (laser and press brake), trunk (tube laser), and ornaments (wire forming).

At Cormark’s request, we will be making a $ 1,000 donation to the American Cancer Society. This will be an annual event at the close of every year. Check our blog periodically for details of the next challenge.

Simply the Best

This month, we unveiled an exciting addition to our state of the art CNC laser center. The second laser more than doubles the capacity of our system. Now, the two lasers and a material handling system can operate “lights out” – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our system matches the productive capabilities of the most sophisticated manufacturers in this country. In our industry, our lead over the competition is dramatic – we are simply bigger and better than next best option. Continuing investment in technology gives Midland an even stronger capability to provide the outstanding quality, solid delivery, and competitive pricing you have come to expect from Midland Metal Products. Stay tuned for our next exciting announcement right around the corner.

Plant Tour Video

Occasionally we will share a short Plant Tour Video to demonstrate our capabilities and show just how things work. Our first video shows our Mig Welding Department.

Blizzard of 2011

With the "Blizzard of 2011" behind us, we would like to express our sincere thanks for your continued patience. We greatly value your business, and are committed to addressing your concerns.

In addition to the challenges brought on by the massive snowfall, Midland Metal Products lost electrical service during the night of the blizzard, which was not restored until last night.

Midland Metal Products took the weather forecasters warnings very seriously, and we executed an action plan well before the storm hit. We extended production shifts and made huge headway on our task load. We alerted our vendors to our requirements, taking delivery of necessary materials in advance. We made sure our staff had a chance to make it home safely, so they could return to the operation rested, healthy, and ready for action!

We are responding promptly, and urgently to these conditions, and have continued the extended shift schedule to minimize production delays.

If you currently have a project with us, we can provide information as to the status of your order. If not, please be assured that Midland Metal Products is operating at 100-percent capacity, and is ready and willing to accept your project.

Thanks again,

The entire Midland Metal Products Family
