Simplex Manufacturing: It’s good to be all wet

Posted in 1 on October 13, 2009 by Peter

Mobile Precision Tool Service recently finished calibration and certification for a company whose highly specialized products are seen the world over:  Helicopter-mounted firefighting equipment.  When you see hundreds, or even thousands, of gallons of water dropped all at once on a hot spot, there’s a good chance the tank doing that work was made in East Portland.

Because of the dangerous work they do, and the severe conditions their products encounter in the field, Simplex has exceptionally high quality requirements.  To help them meet their AS9100 standards, MPTS provides them with an additional layer of traceability and quality control:  Individual tool certification sheets.  Ask us about them when you contact us, if your company must meet aviation or MIL-Spec standards.

Like their product, Simplex is a unique company.  Find out more about them at
