QSI is growing in more ways than one!

Building Expansion Complete!

QSI’s 16,000 sq. ft. expansion is complete and all departments have either moved  into  their new space or soon will be. It  took time, planning, and patience to make this happen, but was well worth the short term inconvenience.

Come see us for a tour.

New faces & new rols for the QSI Team.

We are pleased to announce that Ben Long has joined QSI’s team as an Automation Project Manager. Ben will be filling one of two Automation Project Manager positions for us. Ben started his automation career over 18 years ago and comes to QSI with a wealth of knowledge in engineering, automation, and project management.

Zac Baker, who has been with QSI for more than 25 years, has accepted a new role also as an Automation Project Manager. Ben and Zac will work in tandem to manage our current and future automation growth.

We are also pleased to announce that Mark Garrison has re-joined the QSI team and will be our Mold & Machinery Sales Manager. Mark was part of the QSI team several years ago and we are happy to have him back! He has worked for several plastics equipment manufacturers including Autojectors, Milacron, Van Dorn and Conair. His 30-year career also includes several years with the Plastics Industry Association in Washington, D.C

We have also added other support personnel to strengthen our capabilities so that we can continue to grow and help our customers be successful.

Re-Investing in our future.

QSI has recently invested in equipment focused on our mold making capabilities. Our toolroom, and their capabilities, are an integral part to QSI’s success. It is imperative that we keep up with customer demand and technology. The recent building expansion has opened up the space required for this new equipment.
