Quality is a word we are all very familiar with. A word that can prove many different meanings and be portrayed in many different fashions. Companies leverage their marketing efforts around the word ‘quality’ but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a part of their actual process. Today’s world is filled with endless varieties of products available with many companies vying for your money, so you may be wondering whether or not quality still matters and the answer is… YES, 100% YES.

We don’t just talk about quality here at Yazoo. We live, breathe and manufacture it. We have a reputation for high-quality products that are manufactured to each customer’s specifications. Our highly-skilled team works together, day in and day out, to find innovative ways to manufacture our products more efficiently, while maintaining a top-notch level of quality.

Regardless of what industry you’re in, customers aren’t going to choose you solely based on price but rather on quality. Consumers expect Yazoo to deliver on our promise of manufacturing high-quality paper tubes and cores and as a team, we always exceed that expectation. We provide a high-level of confidence with every order that leaves our manufacturing floor.

Managing quality effectively is a crucial part to being a successful business. That’s just one reason why Yazoo has remained an industry leader for over 119 years.

       

Ever since the very beginning [115 years ago], Yazoo has always kept quality control as a top priority in the company.  We understand and realize that it’s not about the quantity that a customer orders but about the quality they receive with every single product they order.  From raw materials to finished products, we demand quality.  Quality, reliability, and consistency are a way of life at Yazoo.

All of our products are manufactured from 100% recycled paperboard which comes from the best-in-class mills in North America.  We hold all of our raw material suppliers to
very strict tolerances in order to produce high-quality, consistent products for our customers.

We have a quality control system in place for inspecting and testing of all raw materials before and during processing.  This system provides assurance that the materials continue to meet the physical, chemical, functional, visual, and dimensional requirements needed for the customer.  Our employees complete inspection checks and testing on all materials that are used to manufacture our products.  We also do testing on finished paper tubes and cores as well.  Our quality assurance streamlines production and helps ensure that the final products meet our quality criteria.  Our employees perform many extensive tests outlined in our Quality Assurance Manual.

A few benefits of quality control are: increased customer loyalty, ability to gain repeat business as well as new customers from referrals, strengthen market stance, reduction in production cost, encourage quality consciousness, and much more.
