Bryan T. Hall, Extrusion Manager - Cadillac Products Automotive Company
CSM Manufacturing has used CMA for several years and have always found the audit to be beneficial to us for our third party audits. If and when potential issues are found we are notified and are able to correct /improve the EMS system.
Lura Tolliver, Quality Manager, EMS Representative • CSM Manufacturing Corporation
Very pleased with their service. Always prompt on our quarterly storm water audits. Their legal requirement update log helps keep me informed on legal changes.
Bruce Wertenberger, ISO14001 Head & Safety Supervisor • FEDCO
Response to our needs is always quick and CMA has gotten us out of potential “jams” with the information needed and (again) in a very timely manner. CMA caters to our needs. Pricing is very reasonable.
Sherry Harnack, EHS Coordinator • Quality Metalcraft, Inc.
CMA consultants are always updated with the latest AIAG rules and regulations, trained well and communicated them to us. They are customer oriented, making always sure the quality system in place fulfills all customers’ requirements. They always propose recommendations for quality improvement. I will highly recommend them to other friends or colleagues.
Evan Maniadakis, Quality Manager • Sodecia North America
CMA is extremely beneficial to ongoing improvements to our quality system.
Charles R. Bradbury, Corporate Quality • Sodecia North America
Cadillac Products Automotive Company has been using the srvices of CMA since we began developing and implementing our ISO-14001 EHS system (when our customers made it mandatory). Your work in this effort is especially important because we did not have qualified individuals in our organazation with the time to study the regulations, interpret them and apply them. The attention you give to detail has shown us practices we had been doing and never recognized the potential for problems but resolved them quickly once pointed out. The benefit of having the background and training you possess has kept us from having to identify someone and train them to to this ourselves. We are a small company and our associates wear enough “hats” as it is. The work you do for us is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Dennis Gentry, Corporate Quality Director • Cadillac Products Automotive Company
Very informative for me as it was my first audit. I have a better understanding of how to partner better with CMA.
Eric Ebenhoeh, Plant Manager • Cadillac Products Automotive Company
I feel that CMA does a very good job. We use several of their services and are very pleased with their service.
Ken Johnson, Quality Engineer • Aztec Manufacturing Corporation
Experience has been very good. They are on time and I don’t have to remind them of when my audits are due.
Matt Hustek, Engineering Manager • Black River Manufacturing
Conformance Managment Associates (CMA) is a dedicated, ambitious & result driven consulting organization.

Mr. Poplavsky and Mr. Myhrum have a great experience in the consulting arena in multiple domains with a good knowledge on the legal and regulatory requirements.

Best of all, their expertise in customizing the consulting requirements for any size of plant and speeding up the approvals came handy for us, when we wanted to achieve the plant certifications in a stiff time frame. If you ever need someone to deliver under pressure, no slip-ups, just results, CMA is your contact!

Mr. Poplavsky is proactive in understanding the current state and identifying gaps at the first interaction and brings in quick and practical solutions. I recommend him to anyone looking for consulting requirements.
