Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc. (QCMI) is pleased to announce that it is one of nine companies participating in the inaugural Sustainability Circle™ in San Diego. The program is developed and facilitated by True Market Solutions (TMS).

True Market Solutions Sustainability Circle Program offers an innovative, peer-learning approach for small and mid-sized businesses that is affordable, accessible and action-oriented. The core outcome of the program is a customized Sustainability Action Plan created by the participants themselves over six months, guiding them towards greater profitability, employee engagement and competitiveness.

QCMI expects its participation in the Sustainability Circle Program to help it develop a customized Sustainability Action Plan. The plan will address four key objectives: the kick-off of company-wide sustainability efforts; a decrease in the manufacturing facility’s carbon footprint; achievement of the energy star certification; and an investigation in the benefits of incorporating renewable energy by going solar.

The nationally recognized metal working company produces components with complex shapes, contours, exacting tolerances and stringent quality requirements. It manufactures parts and assemblies for the aerospace, power generation, Department of Defense (DOD), oil and gas, marine and heavy equipment industries.
