Q: What’s your role at S&D?
A: I’m the Quality Assurance Manager. I oversee the quality department between all our divisions. My department’s job is to make sure that the raw materials coming in and finished parts going out are good. I also strive to make sure our company is continuously improving and to make sure we are utilizing best practices and meet all ISO and TS 16949 industry standards.
Q: What’s interesting about your job?
A: My job is fast paced and I find that interesting. I get to interact with all the departments and interface with our vendors when any issues occur. It’s also challenging (and rewarding) to come up with new ways to tweak our already efficient processes to make sure we are continuously improving the company, all while providing high quality products to our customers.
Q: How do you “make it happen”?
A: I’m at the office at 6:30 most every day. I’m usually busy hopping around the plant overseeing my department and looking for ways to improve our quality processes.
Q: What’s your favorite Seal & Design product?
A: If I had to say anything I’d say PORON XRD is a fairly interesting product. It’s soft, yet firm at the same time, used as shock protection in sporting equipment, yet suitable for use in commercial applications. We rarely have any complaints about our PORON family of products because it’s of high quality. And we love high quality products in my department!
