Don McFarland, Inovar�s compliance manager, provided a company overview as well as a tour of the Logan, Utah facility for the chapter members. Don explained that Inovar produces circuit board assemblies for a diverse group of industries. Past company awards include �Best of State� and �Utah 100.� Additionally, he explained that the company has experienced tremendous growth since its inception.
During the tour, The Golden Spike Chapter saw the new layout for Inovar�s recent expansion that was driven by its continued growth. Tour participants were able to see first hand-hand that Inovar�s processes are full of sophisticated equipment to reduce hand assembly errors, an extensive integrated computerized quality tracking system, visual Kan Ban scheduling systems and more.
�I cannot speak for all 13 tour participants, but I personally was on overload by the end of the night and was very impressed with Don�s knowledge and understanding of the Inovar quality systems (including registration to ISO9001:2000, ISO-13485 and ISO14001 in progress) as well as the overall production systems at Inovar,� said Paul Harbath, chair of the ASQ Golden Spike Chapter. �The company definitely is a benchmark for employee involvement with one of its top objectives to be the �employer of choice� in Cache Valley, which is truly a living value.�
