Parker Pen Company initiates Panoramic sintering division to manufacture porous metal pen components and from here they expanded into the outside sinter markets and today, SSI is still the market leader for this application.
Parker Pen sells the sintering division to a private group of investors who re-name the company SSI Technologies, Inc. and expands material and process offerings with development of Full Density and Metal Injection Molding (MIM) product lines featuring stainless steel and tool steel materials. During this decade, SSI developed a line of tone wheel products to the support emerging Anti Lock Brake industry.
SSI pioneered the conversion of automotive exhaust components from wrought products to stainless steel sintering products earning several industry awards and earning coveted QS-9000 quality certification.
SSI strategically invested to expand their capabilities and become an industry leader in terms of secondary machining capabilities. SSI earned TS 16949/ISO 9001 Quality Certification, ISO 14001 Environmental Certification and numerous supplier of the year awards. In support of rapid growth, SSI invested in two more building expansions as well as purchasing a second building in Janesville increasing total manufacturing square footage to a level of 150,000.
Commitment to Quality
SSI invested in additional manufacturing equipment and building space increasing their manufacturing square footage to its current level of 250,000 while expanding their sales in five countries and two more product lines.
