Quality Mould Inc. was established in 1983 as a specialty mold shop out of Greensburg, Pennsylvania. We are now centrally located in Latrobe, Pennsylvania and have grown into a skilled manufacturing facility with many diversified capabilities.
We are a small business with twenty plus employees working two shifts year round. Our workforce of trained and certified machinists are all capable of setup, programming and manual inspection which enables us to function under the unique practice of multiple machine operations. This is where the machinist is able to run two, three or more machines simultaneously on a shift to increase productivity and cost efficiency.
To further enhance our future workforce, QMI seeks to hire highly motivated individuals to participate in our apprenticeship program sponsored by the NTMA through the Westmoreland County Community College.
We are proud members of the NTMA, the NCDMM and the Latrobe Chamber of Commerce!
Brian Gray of Latrobe runs five machining stations at once during the second shift at Quality Mould.
“I am the second shift,” said Gray, one of 26 employees at the Unity company that has expanded its facility and its workforce with the help of a low-interest loan approved through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.
Gray switched to the day shift Friday as Dennis Davin, secretary of the state Department of Community and Economic Development, visited the 33,000-square-foot plant during a Jobs that Pay tour.
Quality Mould, Inc. manufactures a wide variety of products out of traditional and modern materials in Westmoreland County. They were seeking to expand into new customer markets which would require larger manufacturing facilities and additional machinery and equipment to accommodate this goal. Catalyst Connection’s Eric MacDonald facilitated a session with Quality Mould management and staff to document the process flow for the new 33,000 square foot Eastpointe facility. They used lean techniques to maximize the value-added flow of materials and to minimize travel distances. Customized training and coaching was delivered to the staff to provide a solid foundation in basic lean principles and 5S, including hands-on experience with a focus on improving visual controls across the facility.
Manufacturing is making a comeback. D.J. Danko, president of Quality Mould, claimed the region's Entrepreneurial Impact award in ceremonies held May 30, 2014.
Quality Mould took a major hit when light bulb manufacturers such as General Electric went overseas for glass molds.
“We're one of the last glass mold manufacturers in the country. All of our competitors went out of business, and we've just gone into other avenues,” Danko said. “Three years ago, GE shut down one of their plants. That was a million dollars a year we lost. That was a third of our business.”
