Audit Passed by a Private Auditing Firm 2014

Again for the year 2014, our ISO 9001:2008 audit passed by a private auditing firm and we did very well with no findings. Another thing we have done was setting up the Ariba System for the Accounting Department.

For this year, John Davis, V.P., and Tom Bruce, Metallurgist, will be attending the annual SVC Show being held in Chicago from May 5-8. However, we will not be exhibiting.

Audit Passed by a Private Auditing Firm 2013

Our ISO 9001:2008 audit passed by a private auditing firm and again we did very well this year. There were no findings.

We have decided to change some things within the Company and our website is one of them. Our goal is to keep current on our news postings. A new posting is that three associates will be attending the SVC Show this year in Providence, RI, from April 23rd through April 25th. MSI will not set up their booth as in the past but rather walk the show and re-aquaint with customers, vendors and business friends made throughout the years of working together. Hope to see you there. We will do a follow-up posting when the show is over.

Quality Audit Done by a Private Company 2012

We had our ISO 9001:2008 Quality Audit done by a Private Company in March and passed with no findings. Again, we are proud of this accomplishment and are compelled to write it down as news.

Andrew Miller as a contributing writer at “This Week” wrote about our company on July 19, 2012.

Materials Science International has been helping keep people cool and green for more than 30 years. Columbus-based MSI uses a machining process to create fine metal and ceramic particles, which can then be applied to surfaces such as glass and solar panels, to increase efficiency and durability of the surface ….. to read more (see on the PDF files section “Keys to Success.”) 

During the early part of September, Bill Bailey, our Excutive Vice President decided to step down and retire after 15+ years of service. We were all sad to see him leave but he was ready and he and his wife, Jan, are taking on new jobs as travelers and relaxers. We wish them both well.

The Company hired Mr. John Davis to take over Bill’s position. He has metal forming, human resources, international management and an accounting background.

MSI ANNEX – 1400 Norton Road Renovation

The renovation to our Annex at 1400 Norton Road was completed during 2011. One of the renovations was the installation of numerous sunlights throughout the 50,000 sq. ft. structure to give the machinists more natural light as well as cut down on electricity. The facility has already seen a considerable savings on energy bills from the new insulation and roof. This is also to help us become more “green” for the environment. We also replaced all the doors and rebuilt the loading docks while repaving our 7 acre parking lot, which not only makes driving smoother, but it opened up more space for us to gain better access to our private rail spur.

The renovation to the Annex was not going to overshadow our main building; so we added a new insulated roof with skylights and again to help cut down on energy bills as well as the natural sunlight that gives the workers a better well being. The most significant addition to the main building was the design and addition of our clean room. This has cut down a considerable amount of shop dust not only for the sake of cleanliness but we obviously care about the overall health of our employees and to help the environment.

During this year we made a concious decision to go “green” as much as possible. We are recycling every possible aspect of material: whether it is paper, plastic, aluminum pop cans or old machinery that is taken apart piece by piece.

We also had 4 of our employees make visits to our customers from as far west as Oregon, making stops throughout the country along the way, traveling to all four corners. It was nice to see everyone again.
