When Chris, our long serving QA manager retired, it was one of those moments in business where you sweat. Quality is the centrepiece of our service and our customers have come to expect the best. Finding a new QA manager with the same attention to detail and dedication was going to be tricky, particularly since we needed them to hit the ground running.
We then found Stephen Doherty, who fit the bill perfectly. Little did we know how similar he was to Chris! In a classic ‘Adelaide Moment’, we found out later that not only did Stephen share Chris’s attention to detail and focus on excellence, he also shared a birthday, went to the same schools and shared their apprenticeship at Simpson’s. So good for the job he was practically the same man we joked.
Stephen’s career to date has been broad, developing expertise in maximising quality both hands on as a tradesperson, then manufacturing manager and QA Manager. His career started in whitegoods, moved into plastics and then metal fabrication and defence. He brings this broad experience to Precimax and will help ensure that Quality continues to be core of our service.
‘You might say I have a deep knowledge’ Stephen says with a smirk. He is talking both about quality and his hobby of SCUBA diving in caves. Stephen also believes that local manufacturing is stronger than many people think and that you can still make goods in South Australia and Thrive. Stephen’s view is that an organisation which is customer focussed and investments in quality will provide customer satisfaction delivery after delivery by giving them exactly what they want every time.
Precimax’s quality record and your products are certainly safe in his hands. Welcome Aboard, Stephen. Contact Peter McCall to discuss how you can take advantage of our product Quality and reliability at Precimax.
