We are pleased to introduce a new member onto our staff. Tony Schmaltz is joining us as a Quality Assurance Manager and will be overseeing the quality department.
Tony comes to us with 23 years of Quality Assurance experience with 20 of those years being specifically in the Aerospace industry. He and his teams were some of the forerunners in getting their organizations AS9100 and NADCAP approved when the Aerospace Industry first required it back in 2003. We were excited to learn about the motto that he uses, “People First, Customer Always”, since he fully believes that when you put your people first, they will always take care of the customers.
He has dedicated a large portion of his career to becoming a better leader and team player through personal and professional development, including many classes, programs, mentors, coaches or similar. Developing the people around him to be ready for the next level of their careers is a huge passion of his, with many team member advancements under his belt.
His vast knowledge of metal finishing and machining allow him to jump right in with our team. He spent 14 years developing or improving systems for Chem Film, Anodize, Plating, Masking, Painting, Powder Coating and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). Then he spent close to 5 years leading the Quality Group at a Design and Manufacturing organization that specializes in precision machining and assembly. We believe that he brings the knowledge and experience necessary for the future success of the Quality Department and Actron.
We are excited to have Tony as part of the Actron team as we grow and keep implementing continuous improvements throughout our shop.
