GameTime Manufacturing Facility Earns PCI 4000 Re-Certification
GameTime is proud to announce the achievement of PCI 4000 re-certification at our manufacturing facility in Fort Payne, Alabama. This marks three consecutive years of certified status. The PCI 4000 Certification Program, administered by The Powder Coating Institute (PCI), is an extensive audit program that evaluates an OEM’s coating-related business practices, process elements, equipment, maintenance practices, and quality control capabilities. Certified OEMs show, through demonstrated audit performance measurement, that they have the capabilities to correctly clean, coat, and cure products to produce quality coated parts.
In order to maintain PCI-certified status, annual audit procedures are required. The certification cycle consists of an intensive on-site audit, followed by two years of maintenance audits which require documentation that ensures processes and procedures evaluated during the on-site audit have been sustained to the level required for PCI 4000 certification. In year four, the intensive on-site audit is repeated. This year a two-day, comprehensive on-site audit was held at Fort Payne Southern Fulfillment Center.
“Process measurement and repeatability are key to giving customers confidence that a certified finishing operation has the processes in place to do the job well,” notes Kevin Coursin, PCI’s Executive Director. “By successfully completing the re-certification process, PlayCore continues to demonstrate that it understands powder coating is a high-performance painting process that must be maintained and controlled to optimize the performance of the finish,” he adds.
“Achieving PCI Certification illustrates our commitment to quality,” states Derrick Haney, Quality Manager. “To be recognized by a third party shows that we have the equipment and procedures in place that enable us to produce the quality coated products that meet our customers’ expectations,” he adds.
