J.A. King serves as a single point of contact for DHM Adhesive’s metrology needs. This has both improved and streamlined their quality process by providing consistency, familiarity, and accountability.

“From a risk-analysis standpoint it makes sense to trust J.A. King, a family-oriented company, to take care of all our calibration, service, and repair needs. These are critical measurement processes that impact our customers, and we need consistent quality,” said Norman Pleger, Director of Engineering & Maintenance for DHM Adhesives. “Because of our long standing relationship with J.A. King, we have developed open communication, trust, and accountability. Our relationship just continues to improve over time.”

Having a single service provider has made it easier for DHM Adhesives to address issues quickly. “When we used several different providers throughout the facility, there was confusion about who to call when there was a problem” said Pleger. This could result in delays while staff determined out who to contact, according to Pleger, “now everyone knows to call J.A. King.”
