The Jefferson Industries Corporation Approach


What does it take to run an effective, cost-efficient and employee-minded operation that has thrived for more than 25 years? Well, we can spell it for you in four letters: SQCD. Learn more about our comprehensive approach to high quality performance below!

 

Safety.

Our employees are the lifeblood of the operation. For this reason, safety is the primary pillar of Jefferson Industries. We are compliant with all OSHA, ISO and other relevant governing body regulations. We believe in training each individual in a comprehensive manner to ensure their safety. We adhere to the ISO/TS 16949 technical specifications, which was created by the International Automotive Task Force for the purpose of continuing improvement of machine safety and minimizing the risk of malfunction.

Quality.

Our quality control team is on standby at all times, ready to review and judge the qualities of each factor that is involved with the production of our automotive components. We take a comprehensive approach because quality control is such an important facet of our operation. We focus on the following areas to ensure a great product every time:

  1. Controls: the efficiency and quality of each process and product that we manufacture.
  2. Competence: the complete understanding of the operation by each employee and the assurance that all individuals are knowledgeable, skillful and qualified to perform the tasks at hand.
  3. Teamwork: the focus on team motivation, integrity, confidence, culture and quality working relationships that makes JIC great.

Cost.

To help cut costs for our clients, we perform routine audits to find exactly where we can improve our operations. We have an in-house audit team that oversees everyday processes, but we will also outsource the audit duties to third parties (both from the United States and Japan) to ensure we leave no stone unturned. JIC is a high-efficiency operation, which allows for competitive component pricing.

Delivery.

We are a “Just In Time” manufacturer, meaning we have adopted a professional methodology that is primarily aimed at reducing costly flow times with our production systems, as well as long response times from clients, suppliers and customers. We fully comprehend the need for a timely delivery, which is why we have it all down – to the minute! Not a second of manufacturing time goes by that is not accounted for.
