AGS Achieves IATF Certification

By on October 28 2018

Over the last year, the AGS Technology team has been working hard to make the transition from ISO/TS16949 to the new IATF16949 standard.  Over three days in August, the AGS Quality Management System was put to the test by its third party registrar.  The result from these efforts was a recommendation for certification with formal certification on October 2, 2018.

AGS Technology Adds Tool Room Equipment Capability

By on January 16 2018

More injection molding machines means more injection molds.  Optimizing production time requires a robust maintenance department that has the right experience and the right tools to help maintain and repair new and existing molds quickly.  The Maintenance Team at AGS identified the need to add a milling machine to help lower cost and lead times on small tooling related projects.  Top management listened and to kick off the New Year a Bridgeport milling machine with two axis digital readout was acquired and installed in the tooling room.  In a very short time it has become a valuable resource when it comes to fabricating and tuning mold components, gages, and fixtures.  The return on investment will not only be short, but more importantly it is a new in-house capability that allows AGS to continue shipping on-time and on specification to its customers.

UPDATE 10/28/18:  Based on the significant cost and lead time reductions achieved with the Bridgeport milling machine, AGS has since added a Boyer Schultz 6×12 surface grinder, a Troyke cross slide rotary table, a Gorton 375-2 tool & cutter grinder, a Deckel single lip tool grinder, a Powermatic variable speed drill press, and a Torit dust collector to help keep our busy tooling room clean.

IQMS ERP Investment Streamlines AGS’ Operations

By on October 10 2015

AGS Technology has always been a lean company with strong systems to manage contract review, customer orders, scheduling, production, quality control, shipping, and accounting.  These systems have served AGS well as evidenced by its excellent on-time delivery and quality record over the last 20 years.  However, the company continues to grow and the end products are becoming more complex with increasing offline assembly operations, product customization, and drop ship requirements.  In addition, customers are also pushing compliance to MMOG/LE (Materials Management Operations Guideline/Logistics Evaluation) to validate that robust material planning and delivery processes are in place to support overall business objectives.

The AGS Management Team recognizes that this level of coordination requires an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system that takes an integrated view of AGS’ core business processes using common databases.  Applications for Sales, Purchasing, Manufacturing, Quality, Maintenance, Accounting, etc… can then share this data across various departments facilitating the flow of information between all business functions.

AGS Technology has already installed the hardware infrastructure and has just contracted with IQMS, a leading authority on manufacturing ERP software systems.  This partnership with IQMS will enable AGS Technology to stay lean, agile, and competitive while continuing to serve the needs of its customers.

AGS Celebrates 20 Years

By on September 28 2015

On Saturday September 26th, AGS Technology celebrated its 20th anniversary.  Twenty years ago, George Staniulis and Chris Racelis leased a 20,000 square foot facility in Schaumburg IL that was completely empty…not even a paper clip.  As George canvassed the Midwest and beyond to drum up sales with customers, Chris ordered, installed, and ramped up the recycling and injection molding infrastructure.  Through hard work and perseverance, the company grew and hired its first full-time employees.  Many of these early employees are still working for AGS Technology and continue to perform at a high level.  Perhaps the greatest source of pride for both George and Chris is the fact that not a single full-time employee was lost when AGS Technology moved from Schaumburg to the new Batavia facility.  We want to thank all of our employees for their trust and dedication to making AGS Technology a great company to work for and do business with these last 20 years!
