“Bringing quality training to Malaysia is carrying on our vision to make quality a global priority,” said Paul Borawski, executive director and chief strategic officer of ASQ. “The circle of quality is not bound by geography, and the Genaxis partnership will allow ASQ to disseminate its body of knowledge to a broad range of corporations and work force in Malaysia. Our hope is to advance Malaysia's quality of goods and services as part of our effort toward a worldwide environment of quality.”
The agreement will give Genaxis a license to market and deliver ASQ Six Sigma Executive, Champion, Black Belt and Green Belt trainings to organizations throughout Malaysia. Laurel Nelson-Rowe, ASQ managing director, will sign the agreement on behalf of ASQ at a ceremony March 17, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
