Toolingdocs Irish shop first in EU to earn certification
The initial qualification is expected to lead to many more in the region.
Ireland’s Prior PLM Medical (formerly Prior Tool and Die Limited) has become the first company in the EU to qualify as a “Certified Maintenance Provider” for moulds, according to US certification firm Toolingdocs.
The company said it was established in 2001 as a travelling seminar circuit to address mould maintenance throughout North America. The training programme was developed in-house and designed around best practices in mould maintenance and repair.
The company has reportedly established itself as a leading authority on the subject and recently expanded its training excursions to a number of areas outside its initial market.
Toolingdocs is part of the PCIC Group, which also includes Progressive Components, Roehr Tool and AST Technology.
Prior PLM Medical, based in Carrick-on-Shannon, said it specialises in the design and manufacture of measuring equipment for the medical device industry.
