Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) & Cleveland recommended in their letter dated July 11, 2013 that PDI participate in the Alternative Release Program. This allows PDI to release shipments before obtaining a Quality Assurance Representative signature on the Wide Area Workflow, Receiving Report. This program is for contractors who have demonstrated the capability to maintain a satisfactory Quality Program or Inspection System.
PDI's ISO 9001:2015 Certification (cert. 99-1613k-07) was issued by Intertek in February 2018. Our Quality Management System is specifically applicable to the design, development and manufacture of Munitions Handling Units, weapons handling/transport/storage and counter-measure systems, and other ground support equipment.
PDI has manufactured approximately 3,000 MHU-110/M and MHU-141/M munitions trailers through Foreign Military Sales and Direct Commercial Sales programs, including programs managed by PROS IV and V, Raytheon, BAE Systems and others.
PDI has consistently earned awards for quality and timeliness of deliveries through the Defense Supply Center (DSC) offices in Columbus, Richmond and Virginia. PDI currently contains a 100% DLA rating for all contracts delivered between mid-2013 and the present.
On behalf of the U.S. Small Business Administration, PDI Ground Support Systems has been awarded the 2017 Exporter of the Year for Region V, which covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.
PDI received the President's 2018 "E" award for export excellence at a ceremony held in Washington, DC, on May 21, 2018.
