BATON ROUGE– Gulf South Machine Inc. was named Louisiana's Small Manufacturer of 2017 by MEPOL in a reception held at the Governor's Mansion in Baton Rouge. GSM was recognized and honored for its initiative in improving its quality management system in response to an area and industry-wide economic down turn brought on by the recent low price of oil. "Gulf South Machine, Inc. successfully navigates unprecedented challenges in the supply chain and leads the way as contract manufacturing enters a new era."
"We improved efficiencies in our production and delivery processes and then partnered with MEPOL to achieve ISO 9001-2015 certification, ultimately documenting the high standards GSM customers have been relying on for the years.”
