Cole Kepro International, LLC reorganizes Quality Department, hires Rick Vargeson as Quality Manager.

 

Cole Kepro has reorganized its Quality Department to better meet the needs of its customers. The Quality organization previously was structured within the Operations division, and created an unnecessary separation from Sales, the department closest to the customer for feedback and expectations. Therefore, the Quality Department is now reporting to Sales, led by Chris Colwell.

 

“This is an necessary move for our business as it continues to expand and introduce many new product lines for customers Cole did not have several years ago. It is essential to ensure the customer’s needs, wants, and expectations are met, so aligning Quality with the customer makes sense internally at this juncture. Let me be clear, that Quality has always been essential, but this subtle move just allows for even greater customer advocacy,” said Frederick Cook, Chief Executive Officer.

 

The department shift also brings process changes as well as new leadership. Mr. Vargeson joins the team from Norgren-Kloehn and brings over 30 years of experience in developing manufacturing and quality standards and procedures with emphasis on quality control and technical aspects of production. He has worked on all aspects of production planning and manufacturing leadership which allows for any process changes necessary to be assimilated easily. His primary tasks will be focused on material quality, handling internal and external customer quality inquiries, and maintaining internal and external quality standards, and process re-engineering.

 

Letty Ochoa, Senior Vice President of Operations for Cole Kepro commented “Mr. Vargeson is an important leader to join the Cole Kepro team. As our company has grown, we must plan accordingly, and Rick will provide the necessary leadership to ensure the diverse needs of customers are always met by setting even higher quality expectations within the plant.”
