Quality Assurance System

Distinctive Plastic's quality assurance program is not in a book, it is out on the manufacturing floor. Every time a job is run, a traveler is automatically printed out that follows the job from setup to delivery. This traveler contains order information, setup instructions, operation instructions, prints and even photographs describing the process. The information is constantly updated in the computer by the quality manager so that we have an ever-improving process. You can be assured that every time we run a job we get better, because the data gets better. We have taken the quality assurance out of the office and put it in the hands of the people who matter, the person operating the machine.

Our Integrated Quality Management System provides a comprehensive set of tools and capabilities. Included in the toolbox is Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Corrective Action Requests (CAR), Document Control, Deviation Tracking (MRB & NCMR), Engineering Change Orders (ECO), Gages Repeatability and Reproducibility (R&R) Calibration, Statistical Process Control (SPC), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) and Medical IQ/OQ/PQ process. These tools enable DPI to ensure customer satisfaction and compliance with the most stringent quality standards.

Our Vision

It is the goal of this company to supply quality products and services to our customers in a timely manner and at a reasonable price; and to provide our employees with a safe and pleasant work environment. We are further committed to a company-wide program for continuous quality improvement.
