At Storti Quality, we provide solutions to all your concerns regarding polyethylene pipeline fusion training. Our mobile fusion training unit is designed to provide our clients in the gas distribution industry the ability to train their technicians on site. With Storti quality, we guarantee hands-on services that will enable our clients to learn the different techniques, the documentation and the procedures needed to ensure the proper fusion of polyethylene pipes.

“As an element to an existing contract with the local utility company, our Company was instructed to create a Quality (QA/QC) Plan which we did not have in place at that time. I chose Storti Consulting because they were highly recommended by other companies in the industry. In just a few months, our Quality Plan was designed to meet the requirements of our Utility Contract for all applicable policies, procedures, and standards. In the same time frame, it was also presented, approved and implemented, by the utility company. Our Storti QA/QC plan was designed to be multifunctional. It can be adapted to other areas of our business. By having this plan already in place, our company has the opportunity to pursue and acquire more business opportunities. Storti Consulting doesn’t stop there! They are always available to assist with any needs that we have for our QA/QC plan. The utility company, with whom we are affiliated, audits the Quality Plan bi-annually to adjust, modify, and make additions to it. Storti is available throughout the year to consult and revise the plan as needed, ensuring us an up to date QA/QC Plan. Thank you, Storti Consulting for all you do for our Company and the great plan that you designed for us.”

“Crall products contacted Storti Quality Consulting for initial program building and certification of the very rigid process for API Q1 compliance and API monogram system. Storti Quality Consulting has been the most thorough and competent consultant Crall Products Co. has ever used. Everything provided to us including the education of compliance to our employees was superior in every aspect. On initial certification the majority of applicants do not receive certification. We at Crall Products Co. not only passed our initial inspection, there were no recommendations or concerns from the auditor. Every year since the initial certification we have passed with superior marks. Storti Quality Consulting will assure your company that it is in compliance with which ever program you wish to be certified to, and give you the knowledge to function on a daily basis. Storti Consulting is also forward looking so as to be prepared for the future”.

“Keeping up with a Quality Assurance / Quality Control Program was a daunting task for us. We had a program in place early on because we “had” to have one. Once we decided that a Quality Program is not just an “on the shelf” dust collector, we wanted to develop a program that reflects all the best practices for our industry. We didn’t know where to begin or what questions to ask, then Storti Quality Consulting, Inc. stepped up to the plate and helped us develop a true QMS program that helps our company to continually excel in what we do and to show our customers that we are on the leading edge of our industry. Ralph has put together a team of experts that could truly help any company accomplish what they need to do to be successful. Thank you Ralph and your entire team for helping ULS get to where we need to be”.
