Our manufacturing philosophy will center around a team concept.  A team, assisted by the latest in automated assembly, SPC quality control systems and 100% final testing, will follow an engine from the first stages of its construction through its completion.  This team of people will then sign off on each engine that they build.  They will also be responsible for following-up any field quality problems. This will drive production efficiencies, pride of workmanship and overall quality.  This philosophy will also produce a work force that will have all the skills necessary to “pitch hit” in the event of absences.
