Chantilly, VA - May 1, 2006 - InfinityQS® International, the leading provider of statistical process control (SPC) software, today announced that Kohler Co. has selected InfinityQS to provide SPC software and services for select plants in the United States. InfinityQS software solutions empower manufacturers to monitor, control and improve the quality of manufacturing operations across a site, an enterprise or an entire supply chain.

Kohler has used InfinityQS’ SPC at a plant located in Kohler, Wis. for many years. Based on those positive results, the decision was recently made to implement InfinityQS software as the standard across additional plants located in Wisconsin, Arkansas and Mississippi. The InfinityQS SPC software will be used to monitor, control and improve components of their products, as well as calculating machinery processes for capability studies to justify machine re-builds.

"Our SPC software and technical services will assist Kohler in locating key areas to target for process improvement, thereby helping Kohler enhance their already high quality standards and ensuring their continued success in the marketplace," said Michael A. Lyle, president and chief executive officer of InfinityQS.

InfinityQS is a sponsor of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) World Conference on Quality and Improvement, occurring from May 1 to 3, 2006, in Milwaukee, Wis., and the company will be exhibiting its latest software. On Tuesday, May 2 at 11:00 a.m., Doug Fair, director of statistical applications, and Steve Wise, director of statistical methods, will be giving a presentation entitled "How to Drive Winning Quality Through Your Supply Chain."
