Quality at Every Step, from Every Team

At Grid Automation, our quality culture is built on providing exceptional experiences to our customers through every interaction with our people and products. Quality is core to our DNA, our policies, and procedures. We start by listening intently to our customers, understanding their current and future requirements, and applying learnings to future innovation with humility and integrity.

 

We believe and support 3 pillars to quality: people, process, and routine validation.

Empowering our People

Our people are the ambassadors of our brand. We actively invest in the right training curriculum and process support tools for our teams. Ongoing mentorship allows employees to grow and develop the skills necessary to drive a “receive no defect, create no defect, ship no defect” culture. Our employees are accountable to our customers and are empowered to stop the line whenever they have concerns about quality.

Data Driven Decisions

We set the bar high and measure success at each step of our product lifecycle whether it's design validation, supplier qualification, manufacturing measurements or customer satisfaction. Continuous improvement initiatives are data driven, using eight disciplines of problem solving (8D) and 5-Why methodologies.

Our people, processes, and state-of-the art systems work together to ensure we deliver on our quality promise for customers around the world.
