Commitment to Quality
Alinabal's Commitment to Quality
At Alinabal, quality is not a static concept. From top management to every employee, combining quality improvement with increased productivity is a continuous process of growth and improvement. The company's ongoing investment in "Achieving Excellence" takes a number of forms.
Alinabal's ATIP culture is evidence of the company's quality commitment. Headed by a diversified group of employees and chaired by the company president, ATIP provides the means for every employee to participate both individually and with others in the ongoing effort to improve products, processes and services.
Just one example of the success of ATIP is Alinabal's unparalleled on-time shipping performance averages better than 98%. In another case ATIP recommended procedural and tool modifications which reduced a die changeover from two hours to a minute. For additional examples of ATIP accomplishments look at "Right First Time, Every Time" in our News section.
Alinabal's strategic decision to implement quality management systems (ISO 9001:2000, ISO/TS16949:2002, AS9100 certifications), resulted from ATIP.
Alinabal is transitioning waste to cost-advantages and our customers are reaping the benefit from these initiatives.
With Alinabal's already well established ATIP program, the transformation to a lean management system represents the perseverance of Alinabal's commitment to continuous improvement.
