Geiger Brothers hosts ASQ section’s monthly program

Nearly 50 local quality professionals, primarily members of the American Society for Quality’s (ASQ) local Scioto Valley Section, toured the Geiger Brothers fabrication shop April 28, 2011. The program and tour served as the monthly program of the regional ASQ Section, which serves 17 counties in south central and southeastern Ohio, eastern Kentucky, and southwestern West Virginia.

The dinner program and tour began at Iron City Pipe & Supply and finished in the Geiger Brothers piping and structural steel fabrication shops.

Following registration and networking, ASQ section members and guests toured and heard about the quality aspects of pipe, valve and fitting (PVF) distribution at Iron City Pipe & Supply.

Following dinner, the second part of the program was a tour of the fabrication shop at Geiger Brothers, where company officers Scott Massie and Erik Massie talked about piping-based work packages, material certifications, and receipt and welding inspections. Guests then observed a demonstration of submerged arc pipe welding.

Attendees included ASQ section members, guests, and management and staff of the two companies, as well as special guests including two Jackson County commissioners, the mayor of Jackson, representatives of the Jackson County Economic Development Board, and local news media.

The evening provided opportunity for these special guests to learn of the services and activities of Iron City Pipe, of Geiger Brothers, of the American Society for Quality, and of the local Scioto Valley Section.
