Policies, Standards and Certifications

Environmental and Quality Management

MPS is ISO-certified and operates under an integrated Quality and Environmnetal Management Systems (QEMS), meeting the requirements of the standards of ISO 14001:2004 and 9001:2008. The ISO standards and our QEMS have been an integral part of the major reorganization and growth initiative we began in 2009. As a result, we have seen significant and positive changes in our leadership team, management philosophy, business processes, operations and in the continued growth of our company.

The purpose of our QEMS is to:

  • Help our organization operate with increased effectiveness and consistency.
  • Reduce the impact of operations, activities, products and services on the environment.
  • Achieve customer satisfaction.

Our MPS Farmington Hills facility is certified through TUV SUD America, Inc. The scope of our certificate includes:

The Development and Provision of Services for Environmental
Program Management, and Industrial Cleaning Management.

Our certificate expires September 14, 2018. We will be updating our program to the ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 standards through routine surveillance and transition audit in June of 2018.

It is every MPS employee's responsibility to ensure quality services are provided to our customers as well as identifying, eliminating or controlling our operational impact on the environment. The QEMS program is our business operating tool for accomplishing this. Our policies encapsulate our commitment and focus on what is important to our organization, which provides a framework and direction for establishing corporate performance metrics and improvement objectives.
