Our wide customer base, ranges from Fortune 500 companies, to home town printing shops. Gavco Plastics product and process diversity, along with our commitment to customers’ quality requirements, is what sets us apart from the average plastic injection molding shop. From parts weighing just a few grams to parts weighing several pounds, our range of Injection Molding presses handles it all. Filtration, petrochemical, marine, home products and items found in everyday use are just some of the products we make every day.
Gavco Plastics has been ISO 9001:2008 certified since July 2002, and also gained AS9100 certification in December 2005. Gavco Plastics is an OASIS approved company for Aerospace services. Gavco Plastics was accepted for certification to the ISO 13485 Medical Device Standard on 2/8/2010. From purchase orders through contract review, verification of purchased product through product realization, Gavco Plastics has set up our internal processes to validate the integrity and quality of all products we produce for our clients. Starting with contract review we work with the client to establish the foundation of quality attributes that they want in their product. Then we develop a control plan for the products, so both parties can see the entire process from raw materials to delivered products. Work instructions, quality attributes and the frequency of the monitoring is then put in place. Traceability from raw material to finished product is a key part of product realization, and just about all of our clients require we document and keep track of this. We are compliant with the companies that require control of their products through the use of Statistical Process Control charts. From startup to in-process through final inspection every aspect of the products we produce is documented and records are maintained.
Gavco Plastics keeps abreast of the latest regulatory compliances and works with our clients to keep all required documentation current. NAFTA, RoHS, PPAP, FMEA, FAI, COA and COC are just a few of the documents that are required by our clients.
