CB HYMAC, a full-service hydraulics, machining and chroming operation located in central Pennsylvania, was recently awarded API Spec Q1 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications for its quality management system from the American Petroleum Institute (API).
“After two years of focused concentration by our team at CB HYMAC, I was very pleased and proud to receive the news that we were awarded our certification,” said Thomas Lang, Vice President of Product Support. “This new registration will help us to provide our expertise to a broader range of customers in the oil and gas industry throughout the United States.”
The scope of the registration and the approved quality management system applies to the hydraulic cylinder repair, rebuilding, machining, laser cladding, hard chrome plating, welding and component re-manufacturing, all performed at the Camp Hill location.
API has developed many standards for the oil and gas manufacturing industry. It is highly regarded in the oil and gas space as it’s the only such trade association of its kind. The API certification programs provide companies with the opportunity to meet global demands and to operate in an increasingly competitive business environment. The API Spec Q1 certificate in particular is intended for companies who manufacture components and equipment used in oil and gas applications. Companies awarded this certificate demonstrate that they have the ability to consistently provide reliable products and manufacturing-related processes that meet customer and legal requirements.
In order to be qualified to apply, companies must have a quality system in place for at least four months prior to submitting an application. They must then submit their quality manual for approval and participate in an audit conducted on-site by an API official. Because of the stringent requirements of API Spec Q1 certification, Cleveland Brothers was also awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certificate. The extensive process for CB HYMAC was coordinated by Jeffrey Matson, Quality Control Manager.
“Our team has spent countless hours over the past two years working toward this, from the quality system we had in place to the application process and the actual audit,” said Dennis McGinley, Hydraulic Business Manager. “I am proud of the efforts of our team, in particular Jeff [Matson], Brianna [Hershey, Mechanical Designer], Justin [Price, Service Supervisor] and our dedicated work force, and look forward to providing current and new customers with our expert capabilities.”
