A quality control system at a company which manufactures equipment is a much needed tool. Without good quality, faulty parts may be shipped to a customer. How happy would your customers be if the parts shipped to them were low quality or broken? Cryogenic Vessels Alternatives had just such a problem. The company decided to use a quality system called ISO9001. However, no one had the knowledge needed to receive and maintain the certification for ISO9001.

Don met with the executive group as well as the regular working employees. He set up various training classes preparing them for the auditing process. Don trained the first group of internal auditors onsite and helped them lead some of their own audits.
“He is a really strong trainer. He speaks with authority. He has a lot of experience and personal anecdotes that he can add,” commented Larry Pinder.
“I would recommend him to people because it would make me look better knowing that caliber of a person. Don is really confident. He knows what he is doing. He’ll call it like it is… Don is forthright and honest. He looks out for the best interest of the company.” – Larry Pinder, CVA

Larry Pinder said, “Folks had awareness of what it (quality management) was and wanted to get there…We went from complete ignorance to every one having a solid grasp of what it is.”
