Midtronics is committed to providing our customers with innovative, cost-effective and reliable products and services that meet or exceed their requirements and are delivered on time.

 

The purpose of the Midtronics quality management system is to continually improve our processes with the goal of providing products and services that our customers will regard as the best quality in our industry. We began formalizing these processes in 1997 to align with the ISO-9001:1994 standard and achieved our first quality certificate for this standard through DNV Certification. In 1999, we added QS-9000:1998.

 

Our current quality management system is based on ISO-9001:2008, and our team utilizes aspects of TQM, Cost of Quality, Lean, and other quality management tools to advance continuous improvement.

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know a battery is chemically discharged at 11.72 Volts?

 

Did you know that the chemical abbreviation PB – Plumbum, which is Latin for lead – does not mean that it is a lead-acid or regular flooded battery?

 

Did you know that maintenance free doesn’t actually mean battery management isn’t necessary? It refers to the times where we still filled up batteries. We don’t do that anymore…

 

Did you know that Lead-Acid has been used since 1886 and is still the best alternative for vehicles? Although it contains lead, it is one of the best recycled products in the world.

 

Did you know batteries are influenced by how they are used, state of charge, temperature, and other influences of their surroundings?
