What is FMG Certified Program? For those who want their remanufactured pumps to work right the first time, and keep their line technicians focused on maximum tool productivity, FMG Certified ProgramTM is a validation process of the technical competencies and expertise needed to plan, deploy, support, and service FMG’s Pumps. The FMG Certified ProgramTM is a structured certification with emphasis on precision, reliability, durability and performance. Each Rebuild Pump that leaves FMG has been thoroughly inspected by our factory certified technicians and backed by our Certification process. FMG has geared up to be equal if not better than the factory specifications for high quality Rebuild Vacuum Pumps. FMG CertifiedTM assures that you will get products as good or better than new because FMG goes the "extra mile" at every step.
