Quality Control

At Hobson & Motzer, quality is built into every part – not inspected in after the fact. That’s why quality is the responsibility of every Hobson & Motzer team member.

Quality control is decentralized throughout our facility, with 20% of our workforce dedicated solely to quality. We establish a rigorous quality plan for every job, and ensure every part meets your quality requirements. Our main QC lab and 4 satellite quality stations are each equipped with state-of-the-art technology that allows us to maintain quality at the source.
