CQM's experience in the plastics industry goes back to January 1984 when the company was founded by Larry Kraft. Over the years, we have learned that our customers want quality products, prompt delivery, and reasonable cost. Our 20,000 square-foot facility in Yakima is convenient to the Yakima Airport and Interstate 82, the major freeway that links Central Washington to Seattle, Spokane, Portland, and points beyond. Overseas, a CQM subsidiary, Global-Kraft, has offices in Hong Kong and Hangzhou, where we outsource work, when appropriate, with qualified shops based in and around Shanghai, China.

CQM is divided into four departments: Administration and Project Management, Engineering and Design, Tooling and Mold-Making, and Plastic Injection Molding. Our facility has a clean-room environment throughout, including positive air pressure throughout our building. This equipment purifies the air in our Injection Molding department, allowing us to produce highly cosmetic parts and assemblies. These facilities qualify us to manufacture various kinds of medical equipment.
Our customers typically operate in a tight time frame, with little lead time. They want price quotes the next day. They want us to help them develop ideas, consider manufacturability, engineer an efficient design, build the mold, and then manufacture the product. They want that to happen in a matter of weeks, not months. We are prepared to operate in that dynamic environment. Our clients include individuals and small firms, as well as large corporations such as Alcoa, Boeing, Motorola and Micron
In recent years, we have begun outsourcing some projects to Asia, specifically China. These projects are arranged and closely monitored by CQM. The result has been the same high-quality, on-time product for customers, but at significantly less cost. For some of our customers, our "China Connection" has resulted in savings of 30 to 50 percent!
CQM adheres to these core values: satisfy the customer, produce quality work, be honest, be disciplined, be creative, maintain dignity in the workplace, and be responsible citizens in the community, nation and world. In the end, we take pride in your success. A win for you is a win for us. We invite you to explore the rest of our site to learn more about what CQM can do for you.
