Sterling manufactures success through unique and innovative solutions.

Our commitment to service means you'll receive your orders on time, complete and with the quality you expect. We achieve this through a smart combination of people, process and technology, tracking our results so that we can ensure the desired outcome.
Sterling’s quality management team of engineers and inspectors are involved throughout the manufacturing life-cycle with all of our production orders. They ensure that the components that we produce are to specification every time. Additionally, our production staff contribute directly to our service excellence with in-process inspections, using detailed work instructions and key performance indicators that monitor and deliver consistent, excellent results.
Our Design Transfer Process, Quality Systems, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and detailed work instructions ensure that all of our operations support a final product or component that is produced to your specifications every time.
