Evansville Tool & Die

Evansville, Indiana


Since 1959, Evansville Tool & Die has manufactured high tolerance tooling.  In recent years, an extra emphasis has been placed on thermoform molds, trim tools, prototypes and large run production machining. The company prides themselves on precise conformance to customer needs, and utilizes the many years of experience to provide technical support into and through installation.

Situation

Evansville Tool & Die wanted to implement a certified QMS for some time, but with a short staff and little extra time, it was an extreme challenge to do alone.

Solution

Purdue Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) spent approximately 8-10 day onsite assisting in an ISO full implementation.

Results

Evansville Tool & Die recently completed the phase two audit for ISO certification. The company had zero non-conformance hits on the audit. It would have been impossible without the assistance of Purdue MEP.

Testimonial

“With Purdue MEP, we were able to seamlessly implement our QMS system and the whole team learned a lot through the process. We received outstanding training, hands on and classroom, from Purdue’s Subject Matter Experts. They were available throughout the whole process--anytime we had questions and most of the time it was after hours. They will always be an extended part of the team, and we hope to do more projects in the future. We are seeing the benefit already doing more work with our automotive and government customers. It has made our inspection process expected much smoother and throughout. We hope this opens more doors in the future.”
