Quality Engineering Services

Add more manufacturing engineering fire-power
to your Quality Engineering support — and get out of containment faster

Continental Quality Engineering (CQE) is built on a twenty-year history of Manufacturing Engineering capabilities. Our familiarity with the world of automotive component suppliers has enabled us to respond to the need for detecting and containing parts that do not conform to manufacturing specifications. Our real value lies not in sorting, containment or inspection activities, but in the ability to end the need for such activities.

Containment is a quarantine process for parts that do not conform to the original specifications that were required by the customer — including specific levels of inspections and sorting to remove non-conforming parts from shipments, and inspector certification markings to indicate that a part has been inspected and approved for shipment to the customer.
