Quality Crescent Plastics uses an APQP approach which ensures that we address what is critical to the function of your part. This information is communicated to our operators and inspectors with documented control plans. Our operators and inspectors then assume primary responsibility for quality assurance by checking dimensions, part function and color during production. We also utilize the latest in technology to ensure a quality part, including: On-line gauges (Go/No Go Gauging) On-line laser gauging Optical comparators SPC charting Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) Color Spectrophotometer (color held to  1 delta unit) Crescent has been certified as an ISO 9001:2008 organization since 2005 . The effectiveness of our quality system is reflected in our excellent quality performance metrics.
