Emerson Power Transmission Standardizes on InfinityQS
Chantilly, VA - September 27, 2006 - InfinityQS® International, the leading provider of statistical process control (SPC) software, today announced that Emerson Power Transmission (EPT), a major producer of mechanical power transmission drives, components and bearings, has selected and deployed InfinityQS SPC software. EPT Bearings decided to standardize on InfinityQS' SPC solutions after achieving successful and measurable results and ROI at its plants in Aurora, IL and Valparaiso, IN. The company purchased additional licenses at these plants, as well as nearly two dozen licenses for its plant in Guadalajara, Mexico.
EPT products are frequently designed for specific applications and are used across a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, construction, healthcare, food and beverage processing, HVAC and air handling, exploration and drilling, solar power and textiles among others. The company has gained a strong foothold in its industry and is experiencing steady growth with its well known branded products such as Browning, Kop-Flex, SealMaster, McGill and Rollway.
"Not only do InfinityQS SPC products provide the flexibility and power we need, but we also aren't required to purchase any additional proprietary hardware or cables, saving dollars from the onset," said Matt Mersman, manager of strategic programs and quality bearings at EPT. "We have a tradition and promise to uphold to our customers, so we evaluate our quality products very closely. InfinityQS' software and support services made the installation and setup easy, allowing us to increase work production while saving money and time."
"Manufacturers remain the largest contributors to the U.S. economy, but each year the industry is predisposed to losing upwards of $8 billion in product recalls," said Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO at InfinityQS. "Manufacturers such as EPT are leveraging SPC products to increase their monitoring and control to improve and preserve quality production from start to finish. We believe it to be a great validation that EPT has fully engaged with InfinityQS and is standardizing on our SPC software to assure its quality production and to remain globally competitive."
