KOMET SERVICE® Partner Breckers Cutting Tools earns ISO certification



Breckers Cutting Tools of Roseville, Michigan is the seventh KOMET SERVICE® Partner to earn ISO 9001:2008 certification, a major step for both Breckers Cutting Tools and KOMET SERVICE®, as both companies push for increasingly higher standards of quality assurance.


Roseville, Mich. (July 21, 2016) – Michigan-based KOMET SERVICE® Partner, Breckers Cutting Tools, and KOMET of America, are pleased to announce that Breckers Cutting Tools has attained ISO 9001:2008 certification. All KOMET SERVICE® Partners are currently working to obtain ISO 9001:2008 certification and Breckers Cutting Tools is the seventh Partner to have completed the certification process. This certification, established by the International Organization for Standardization, ensures that customers receive goods of a consistently high quality, and that all regulatory requirements are met, regardless of the nature of the product or the industry. A certification with such broad applicability naturally carries with it a great degree of steps and requirements; as such, Breckers Cutting Tools certification shows the commitment to quality and customer assurance that they share with KOMET.


“We are delighted that Breckers Cutting Tools has received their ISO certification, but it is equally exciting and motivating for us all at KOMET SERVICE®,” said Tom Whennen, Manager, KOMET SERVICE® North America. “All of our Partners are aggressively working towards ISO certification, and we are getting closer each day to all of our Partners obtaining certification. Breckers Cutting Tools’ accomplishment shows the dedication we all have towards being ISO certified. ISO certification is an added stamp of quality and reliability, and it is what sets KOMET SERVICE® apart in the solid carbide tooling market. Our joint dedication to quality and to customers is unparalleled.”


“We at Breckers Cutting Tools put quality control and customer service at the forefront of our interactions with our customers,” Breckers Cutting Tool CEO George M. Buhler said. “Our quality management system was written with this concept in mind. Being ISO certified adds a system that places our customers where they should be: at the core of our company being serviced by all of our teams to the best of our ability." Breckers Cutting Tools joined the KOMET SERVICE® network in May 2015, but Breckers Cutting Tools has been a Detroit-area staple since 1953.
