Pinnacle Data Systems, Inc. Announces Recertification of Quality Systems Registrations

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -   Pinnacle Data Systems, Inc. (PDSi) (AMEX: PNS) today announced it has successfully completed a full recertification audit of its quality systems registrations, which include its ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems; ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems; ISO 13485:2003 Medical Devices-Quality Management Systems; and TL9000-H,V R5.0/R4.0, a telecommunications standard published by the Quality Excellence for Suppliers of Telecommunications (QuEST) Forum. Independent auditors confirmed PDSi's compliance with all of these quality standards.

In addition to the general quality management standards of ISO 9001 and the environmental governance of ISO 14001, PDSi operates under the guidelines of ISO 13485, which addresses specific regulatory requirements associated with the medical device industry. Several large medical system original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) include PDSi-built computer platforms in their high-end diagnostic and analytic products.

In conjunction with ISO 9001, TL9000 certification establishes quality systems and product quality standards to protect the integrity and use of telecom equipment and directs PDSi's service of its many telecom customers. The upgrade to this registration is consistent with PDSi's daily involvement with major telecom network equipment OEMs.

"We are proud to see that our continuous improvement methodology and business system disciplines have been independently validated," said Timothy J. Harper, Chief Operating Officer of PDSi. "Our performance and high level of customer satisfaction are built upon the fundamentals of the ISO standards."

These certifications reflect PDSi's ongoing commitment to quality, and place it among the best-in-class companies that have achieved and sustained the high quality systems standards required for these registrations. PDSi first obtained its ISO 9001 registration in 2000. ISO 14001 registration was first awarded to PDSi in 2003. The Company's medical device ISO 13485 certification was attained in 2004, and it initially achieved TL 9000 registration in 2005. PDSi retains these registrations through its continuous focus on quality, documentation, metrics and root cause analysis. Both independent agencies, as well as PDSi's OEM customers, regularly audit compliance.
