Online PR News – 22-July-2011 – – Miller Felpax Corporation, the original inventor and manufacturer of traction motor gearcase seals and support bearing lubricators, for both EMD and GE locomotives, provides the highest quality and most complete line of OEM seal technology for the rail industry.
For over 30 years, Miller Felpax has been the leader in state of the art production of quality, locomotive gearcase seals. With its own in-house testing facility, as well as independent third party testing, Miller Felpax has unmatched gearcase seal technical expertise to stand behind the company’s seal designs. The rigorous testing, lean methodology and manufacturing processes have lead to an extremely high quality product that performs particularly well in a very harsh, demanding environment. While competitors have attempted and continue to attempt to copy Miller Felpax parts, Miller Felpax guarantees OEM performance and quality that others have not been able to duplicate with "knock-off" versions. Any railroad concerned with safety, performance and longevity of parts calls on Miller Felpax.
“Our customers have come to rely on us for locomotive gearcase seals that they know will not leak,” said Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Dave Fisher. “Our quality control is second to none and we stand behind our manufacturing to guarantee satisfaction. When a railroad makes a purchase from Miller Felpax, they know they are getting an excellent product,” Fisher added. "Choosing Miller Felpax isn't only about making the best purchasing decision, it's about the safety and well-being of those involved in the rail industry. An original, high quality part manufactured under the strictest guidelines means peace of mind for our customers."
In 2010, Miller Felpax underwent a major manufacturing facility upgrade to provide increased flexibility, more efficient ordering and increased capacity. The improvements have lead to shorter lead times, and superior product consistency
Miller Felpax holds the Association of American Railroads M-1003 Quality Assurance Program Certification. AAR M-1003 certification demonstrates that Miller Felpax has a rigorous quality assurance system in place to ensure continuous improvement and quality of railway products and services. It enhances the railroad industry’s confidence in the ability of suppliers such as Miller Felpax to provide quality goods and services on a continuing basis.

Suppliers must undergo a complete quality system audit under M-1003 standards to certify that implemented quality systems are in compliance with Association of American Railroads criteria.
