Sometimes OMEP is brought into a business to help solve one problem — but when we dig deeper, we find that the solution is different than anticipated.

And sometimes, the opportunities are bigger, too.

That’s what happened with QPD (formerly Eagle Precision Sheet Metal).

Eagle Precision Sheet Metal was founded in 2001 in Cornelius, Oregon. Now, as QPD, they deliver the highest quality products to semiconductor, technology, medical and B2B electronic manufacturers and beyond.

The Situation

When OMEP initially engaged with Eagle Precision, the company was teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. Eagle Precision asked for help creating a sales leadership position to boost their revenue and financial stability. 

What initially seemed like a straightforward need for more sales soon evolved into a different assignment. We recognized that, beneath the surface, Eagle Precision had been grappling with issues foundational to its growth and long-term success.

At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic threw a curveball at Eagle Precision — impacting their customer base and intensifying the challenges they were already grappling with.

The Solution

OMEP brought clarity and a roadmap for transformation. The key to the project’s success lay in recognizing that putting sales ahead of operations was not going to fix their problems. Instead, we decided to get their operational foundation in order, setting the stage for sustainable growth.

One crucial aspect of the solution was the creation of more standardized procedures. We recognized the need to establish operational best practices, providing Eagle Precision with the tools and strategies to enhance its operational leadership and practices. 

Continuous improvement became the guiding principle. The pivotal component of this transformation was the development of standardized procedures to create consistency and efficiency in their operations.


The Results

Operational Excellence: OMEP was a trusted advisor, guiding Eagle Precision through complex organizational challenges. The project’s focus on lean manufacturing and continuous improvement laid the groundwork for the company’s future success. Standard work procedures were developed, ensuring consistency and efficiency. Streamlined processes continue to boost overall performance.

Workforce Transformation: The project tackled longtime workforce issues, bridging the gap between the “old guard” and the “new guard” within the culture. This was instrumental in fostering a more positive and inclusive environment that encourages adaptability and welcomes change.

OMEP’s local to global insights have been critical and necessary for our Company to transition from industry 1.0 to 2.0. OMEP’s breadth and understanding of the operational and strategic best practices has allowed QPD to avoid bankruptcy during COVID and thrive during the structural shifts that are happening in manufacturing in America.
