PIONEER-STANDARD WINS ISO CERTIFICATION, ISO-9002 REGISTRATION

 CLEVELAND, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Pioneer-Standard Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIOS) today announced that it has won International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification and ISO-9002 registration. Only about 600 U.S. companies and 25,000 companies worldwide are ISO certified. The company said the certification was an outgrowth of its extensive and continuing quality management initiative called FutureStart, which has been underway for several years.
 ISO comprises the national standards bodies of 91 countries presently. Its goal is to promote standardization on a global basis to improve the exchange of goods and services, and to provide standards in the area of quality management and quality assurance. ISO certification affirms that a company documents its quality policies and procedures, trains its people consistent with documentation, and audits processes to ensure compliance.
 The certification and ISO-9002 registration followed an audit of Pioneer's quality management system by Bureau Veritas Quality International (BVQI), the ISO third party assessor for North America. Pioneer said the scope of the registration was extremely broad for a distributor. BVQI's evaluation included Pioneer's Corporate Distribution Center, sales offices, corporate purchasing, and the company's military warehouse -- all of which were examined to assure that the company meets its quality commitments to customers.
 Pioneer said the ISO certification is a substantial confirmation that it has the quality management system in place to meet its commitments to customers.
 Pioneer-Standard and its 50 percent-owned affiliate, Pioneer/Technologies Group, Inc., serve most of the nation's major markets from 38 locations, supplying technical support and electronic components and computer products. Their sales rank third among the nation's approximately 1,500 industrial electronics distributors.
