EQI facilitates APQP “Best Practices” Seminar

On Tuesday, July 18th, EQI hosted an APQP best practices session with three of West Michigan’s finest organizations (Cascade Engineering, Pliant Plastics, and Grand Haven Stamped Products (GHSP)).   The event focused on how each company’s respective APQP processes function — promoting shared learning of APQP methods, communication strategies, metrics, and IT tools.  “The event successfully identified strengths and continuous improvement opportunities for all participants to consider, implement, and share in future sessions with other West Michigan companies and customers alike” stated Matt Kline, EQI Quality Manager.  “The dialogue at the meeting stimulated great opportunities for improvement and certainly justified further meetings/conversations going forward” 


Special thanks go out to the participants for their willingness to contribute, challenge, and, ultimately, openly share ideas.  This type of activity continues to demonstrate why West Michigan remains one of the greatest places to work and do business in the entire country.” says Matt Kline, EQI Quality Manager.
