The UTEP office of the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC) recently honored MIRATEK, a local technology information systems, business and engineering firm, for attaining ISO 9001 certification.

MIRATEK’s certification, a quality standard that will allow them to grow and seek new contracts, was achieved with support from UTEP’s TMAC office and Raytheon’s Mentor Protégé Program.

TMAC is a statewide industrial extension program funded through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology – Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program.

TMAC centers are located at seven universities throughout the state. The UTEP center is responsible for five far-west Texas counties. The UTEP center is housed in the College of Engineering’s Institute for Manufacturing and Materials Management and provides technical assistance and resources to small- and mid-sized manufacturing companies.
