Quality is always part of the picture

How can customers be assured of a consistent quality product? Total Quality Management (TQM) has been incorporated into research, product development, manufacturing, marketing, distribution and customer service areas. They are "a way of life" at Lord.

For example, statistics and basic charting techniques are used to measure consistency and purity of incoming raw materials, to manipulate variables in product development, to monitor sales activity and to more accurately forecast marketing trends and opportunities. TQM methods are helping Lord Corporation to become the highest-quality producer in every market served, and to be recognized worldwide for high-performance products and total reliability as a supplier.

Worldwide markets and services

The transportation industry, including both on- and off-highway vehicles, still constitutes the largest market for Chemlok adhesives. Other markets we serve today include military, aerospace and industrial products.

Since any product is only as good as the people behind it, the Market Development Department works closely with customers, from the earliest stages of product design, right through manufacturing.
