Quality Assurance

We are dedicated to creating a culture embracing lean manufacturing, continuous improvement, and leading-edge technology to ensure product/process control. Instilling discipline and documentation to follow ISO/TS guidelines proves quality assurance is a main priority at Viking Plastics.

Quality is our guarantee. All of our team members are steadfast in their commitment to stakeholders’ satisfaction and demonstrate this commitment by exceeding our customers’ requirements.

Building quality products is truly a never-ending process. It starts with equipment and processes that are specifically designed to maintain stringent parameters. In order to utilize a full-picture approach to quality, we utilize all manners of gages, calipers, profilometers, spectrophotometers, coordinate measuring (CMM), statistical process control (SPC), first article inspection (FAI), and 3D laser scanning equipment. We also operate in an RoHS-compliant facility.

Quality Policy: All Employees of Viking Plastics are committed to stakeholders’ satisfaction by meeting or exceeding our customers’ requirements through continuous improvement of our productivity and quality systems.

Our Quality Engineers practice a rigorous Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process that involves cross-functional teams. However, at Viking Plastics, quality is the responsibility of each and every one of our team members. Our Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is key. Quality Engineers work with Quality Technicians and Inspectors to validate new products, investigate improvement opportunities, and diagnose other issues a product might have.

Viking Plastics reviews all products and raw materials that we purchase to make sure they are meeting requirements. Once a product’s quality has been approved, we apply an internal lot number that is traced through our entire process and then recorded on the label. In some instances we’ve implemented serialized traceability that is applied directly to the product.

At Viking Plastics we strive for an environment of continuous improvement. We regularly review our abilities in the lab to measure tight tolerances and utilize advanced technology. It’s our commitment to continuously improve, ensuring our ever-growing customer requirements are always met with quality and professionalism.

Where standard measuring tools fall short, Viking Plastics employs other technologies to ensure quality.
