Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) & Cleveland recommended in their letter dated July 11, 2013 that PDI participate in the Alternative Release Program. This allows PDI to release shipments before obtaining a Quality Assurance Representative signature on the Wide Area Workflow, Receiving Report. This program is for contractors who have demonstrated the capability to maintain a satisfactory Quality Program or Inspection System.
PDI's ISO 9001:2008 Certification (cert. 99-1613k-04) was originally issued in November 1999. INTERTEK assessed and approved the Quality Management System (QMS) at PDI, for the ISO 9001, BS EN 9001, and ANSI/ASQC Q9001-1994 quality assurance standards. Our QMS is specifically applicable to the design, development and manufacture of Munitions Handling Units, weapons handling/transport/storage and counter-measure systems, other ground support equipment, and assembly of electronics for weapons and re-manufacturing.
PDI has manufactured over 2,500 MHU-110/M and MHU-141/M munitions trailers through Foreign Military Sales and Direct Commercial Sales programs, including programs managed by PROS, Raytheon, BAE Systems and others.
PDI has consistently earned awards for quality and timeliness of deliveries through the Defense Supply Center (DSC) offices in Columbus, Richmond and Virginia. PDI currently contains a 100% DLA rating for all contracts delivered between mid-2013 and the present.
On behalf of the U.S. Small Business Administration, PDI Ground Support Systems has been awarded the 2017 Exporter of the Year for Region V, which covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.
