Gasco Affiliates, LLC, a leading global producer of precision calibration gas, announced in a recent press release the appointment of a new quality assurance manager and further expansion of its 26,000-square-foot production facility, warehouse and corporate offices. The moves are designed to strengthen the company’s position as an innovator of durable, easy-to-use, environmentally friendly calibration gas equipment and accessories.

Bill Miller, a 23-year quality control management veteran, has been named quality assurance manager. In his new position he will lead improvements across all quality measurement metrics and implement strategies to secure ISO certification. Miller will be responsible for overseeing operations, production methods and processes, training all personnel to ensure commitment to quality, enhancing Gasco’s reputation for quality management, as well as establishing and implementing the company’s ISO Quality Management System.

Prior to joining Gasco, Miller held positions as quality manager at EEI Manufacturing and director of quality assurance at MSI. In addition to being a Value Stream Mapping Six Sigma Expert-Green Belt, Miller is certified by the American Society for Quality (ASQ) and a Certified Quality Auditor. He has achieved four prior ISO certifications. Miller graduated from UCLA with a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering.

Facility Expansion
Gasco has completed a 4,100-square-foot expansion of its warehouse facilities in Oldsmar, Fla. The new addition will house Gasco’s quality assurance department, ensuring continuous quality refinement, and an upgraded shipping department to support faster delivery. The Gasco facility now spans 30,000 square feet.

Gasco president Tom Hanway projects 2011 to be a banner year for the company due to new product innovations, the addition of new distributors and an increased dedication to Gasco products by its national distributor network. “The expansion of our warehouse and the addition of Bill Miller has strengthened our ability to produce and deliver high quality, innovative products,” says Hanway, “which in turn will allow us to lead the marketplace with new technologies and services that will exceed expectations.”
