"As Director of the American Metal Stamping Association, now known as the Precision Metalforming Association, then HK Metalcraft’s Vice President Raymond Hopp visited Japan in 1981.  Hopp was immediately impressed with the quality controls that were in place there.  Seeing the implications of it, Hopp set out to incorporate those principles into his company. When ISO certification became prominent in 1994, HK Metalcraft was on the forefront and was certified two years later in 1996.  The company has been current ever since.  It’s continuous improvement process included adding QS9000 and ISO/TS 16949 certification (specific to the automotive industry) and Lean manufacturing to its TQM toolbox.  HK’s successful implementation of TQM was a result of genuine commitment to it by management and a complete buy in from its workforce.  When HK started the process they experienced a high reject rate, which was inline with industry standards at the time. Recently, HK had shipped approximately 170 million pieces with zero defects over a thirteen month period."
