Optimize Your Business Operations: Enhance Efficiency and Boost Revenue with Our Expertise

Quantum Associates, Inc was founded by Willie Carter in 1998 and is a certified Minority Business. Our process improvement approach draws on the disciplines of lean manufacturing,  lean six sigma,  and constraint management to help our clients minimize or eliminate costly non-value-added work to improve their bottom line and execute faster, flawlessly, and affordably.

Businesses today are under constant pressure to do more with less. Consumers demand more personalization faster, flawlessly, and affordably. Shareholders are demanding stronger revenue growth, but sooner and with less capital. Leading companies are confronting these challenges by launching aggressive new programs to improve their administrative/support processes, improve manufacturing efficiency, and speed up time to market. We have both consulting and management experience in manufacturing and service organizations helping them do more with less to create and sustain value.
