Grinding Technology LLC, a KOMET SERVICE® Partner, is now ISO Certified


Grinding Technology LLC of Houston is the latest KOMET SERVICE® Partner to attain ISO 9001 certification, providing customers an unmatched level of assurance that solid carbide tools refurbished or manufactured there will be of the highest quality and adherence to geometries.


HOUSTON (May 20, 2015) – Grinding Technology LLC, a KOMET SERVICE® Partner, proudly announces their ISO 9001 certification, which serves as an extra level of quality assurance to the customers who trust them for their solid carbide tool refurbishment and simple solid carbide tool manufacturing needs. Grinding Technology proved themselves to be a leader in tool grinding in the South Central U.S. when they joined the KOMET SERVICE network in autumn 2014, and they are raising the bar once again with this certification.


“While we have always valued precision and quality and felt that our work spoke for itself, joining the KOMET SERVICE network really brought us to the next level. However, ISO certification is the ultimate testament to our dedication to quality, and it sends a strong message to our customers and soon-to-be customers, alike,” says Adolfo Perez, President and CEO of Grinding Technology LLC. “We are the best solid carbide tool regrind shop in the south central market, and we’re open and ready to impress.”


Tom Whennen, Director of Channels at KOMET of America and Manager of KOMET SERVICE in North America, is also excited about this development, saying “While our recent growth across the continent has been stellar, we haven’t forgotten one of our core values: quality. Grinding Technology has worked very hard to earn this recognition, and they will continue to work hard to go above and beyond their customers’ expectations. Grinding Technology is the latest in an ongoing string of KOMET SERVICE Partners who have been or will soon be ISO certified. With a quality offering like KOMET SERVICE, it’s an exciting time to be involved with the solid carbide tooling industry.”
