Columbus Stainless achieved ISO 9002 listing in September 1992. This listing has been maintained since then and we are currently certified to ISO 9001. Our philosophy for quality is "Prime, On Time, Every Time” and this is communicated to all employees through the Quality Policy, which we have also made available on the downloads webpage for any interested parties.
