Congratulations to KARLEE: A TL 9000 Certified, Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award Recipient

This story was featured in our recent Q2 edition of THE STANDARD, but we also wanted to provide access to this story on our blog.

Do quality systems, certifications and frameworks matter to an organization?  You bet they do.

While they’re not a client, a fellow WBENC and QuEST Forum member company, KARLEE recently celebrated their 40-year anniversary.  Many of you know KARLEE as a shining example of a company dedicated to ICT Quality.  As Treasurer of the QuEST Forum Executive Board, KARLEE CEO JoAnn Brummit, is focused on driving supply chain excellence.

If you’re not aware, BIZPHYX President and CEO Sue Clancy and KARLEE CEO JoAnn Brummit, lead the Small Business Group in QuEST Forum.

As a result of this 40-year milestone, JoAnn was recently featured in a Dallas Business Journal article and FACETIME video.  You can watch JoAnn’s video by clicking the image link below:
