Recent Investments in Training and System Redesigns Pay for Themselves Within the First Year and Lead to Remarkable Ongoing Savings for Qualtek
Qualtek is a family-owned business in Colorado Springs that is represented by three generations of manufacturers. Specializing in metal manufacturing for the medical device and aerospace industries, Qualtek has a solid reputation for innovative problem solving and highly customizable solutions designed to meet a wide variety of unique client needs.
Having recently conducted a thorough process of market analysis coupled with internal exploration into how and where they wanted to focus their efforts, Qualtek decided to capitalize on the great success they have experienced in the medical device field with such clients as GE Healthcare. Additionally, they identified the need to target more customers who would benefit from the unique vertically integrated manufacturing system that they have adapted to meet the needs of all production industries here in Colorado.
Qualtek had previously received training and assistance from Manufacturer’s Edge (then CAMT) in a variety of areas, so it was an easy decision to consult with them again for assistance with moving forward and better positioning themselves to reach their target goals. One tool that they knew they could put to use immediately was ISO 13485 and 14001 Certifications, which they will complete this summer, that has already allowed them to help one existing customer and attracted the attention of several new potential customers.
The money we invested with Manufacturer’s Edge not only paid for itself within the first year, but has also allowed us to access new markets and address previously unmet needs.” Christopher Fagnant, Vice President of Business Development
