Quality Assurance and Control

Mendell's QA and QC staffs are an unusual bunch of professionals. While their colleagues in Manufacturing and Engineering would grin and offer replies containing phrases such as, "That's true" or "Obviously", further explanation reveals the true nature of their uniqueness.

First, the amount of professional experience in the Quality disciplines is impressive. With an average of almost 19 years, it’s very rare for an unfamiliar challenge to arise, be it measurement systems or process characterization.

The Medical Device and Aerospace manufacturing sectors are the primary sources of this team’s Quality education, training and experience.

Currently, the team has members who hold the ASQ certifications of Certified Manager of Quality and Six Sigma Black Belt.

And lastly, Mendell Quality Control employs the most advanced inspection equipment available. Both contact and visual measurement technologies are effectively utilized in the verification of product conformance.
