Process and Quality Control Solutions LLC

I’m Dave Lehrschall. I’ve started this consulting business because I thoroughly enjoy working with teams to solve process and quality problems. Process and Quality Control Solutions LLC has only one employee, me. I’ve gone through the exercise of formally setting up this business so that I may qualify to work with Automotive O.E.M.’s, their suppliers, and similar businesses.

Process and Quality Control Solutions LLC is a certified organization by the State of Indiana. I have established federal and state tax identification numbers. I have also acquired General Liability and Professional Liability insurance to work as a consultant. “Bonding” does not apply because I am an insured owner-operator directly covered by the liability policies.

Training and Certifications

M.S. in Manufacturing Management – Kettering University

B.S. in Computer Science – Park University

Four year Journeyman Tool and Die-maker apprenticeship
