Quality Magazine recently posted an article related to the importance of quality and other interesting observations regarding their 15th Annual Spending Survey. The article indicates a positive increase in spending where quality is concerned, along with other key indicators showing support and acknowledgment of the importance of quality. Two highlights worth noting include: 1) About half (49%) said the importance of quality has increased compared to a year ago. 2) The top three spending categories were general test, measurement and inspection equipment (69%); gages and gaging systems (65%); and test and inspection services (53%). Michael L. Hetzel, Pro QC’s VP/Americas, was recently interviewed and discussed trends in logistics and supply chain. At Pro QC, we are looking forward to supporting the increasing focus on quality as not only a competitive advantage but a necessity for success in the marketplace. By providing solutions, we reduce quality risk and cost. The full article via Quality Magazine can be found here.
