Qualtrax, Inc. Welcomes Colortech as Newest Customer
CHRISTIANSBURG, Va., January 24, 2012 — Qualtrax, Inc. recently welcomed Colortech to its growing customer base. Colortech manufactures color and additive concentrates for the plastics industry. Its products have a wide range of uses, from everyday household consumer items to industrial materials and agricultural applications.
Quality assurance is a critical part of the operations of Colortech, an ISO 9000-certified company. Colortech will use Qualtrax software to reduce the amount of administrative time currently involved in maintaining ISO certifications. It will also assist the company in setting up workflows.
“Colortech is growing,” says Melissa Bailey, Continuous Improvement Engineer at Colortech. “Using a manual process to ensure we were meeting our quality standards was a lot easier when we only had a few people, but as we add more staff Qualtrax will be especially important in managing workflows and the documentation required to maintain our ISO certifications.”
Colortech plans to use Qualtrax to maintain documentation within its quality department and to automate its business processes. Colortech has two facilities: one in Morristown, Tenn. and the other in Brampton, Ontario. Qualtrax will help them ensure that workflows are followed no matter where the work is being done.
“Colortech is a welcome addition to our family of customers,” said Amy Ankrum, Director of Qualtrax. “We look forward to helping them maintain their quality goals.”
