Team Quality Services, Inc. Awarded INSafe Training Contract

Team Quality Services, Inc., of Auburn, has been awarded a contract with INSafe, a division of the Indiana Department of Labor (DOL), to provide health and safety training courses throughout the state.  The courses are being offered to help Hoosier businesses create and maintain safe and healthy workplace environments that are compliant with the standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The Indiana DOL is expanding its occupational safety and health training reach throughout the state by awarding scholarships to Hoosier businesses.  These scholarships provide critical training to employers and employees who may otherwise not be able to afford to participate in these training courses.

Team Quality Services worked closely with the Indiana Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) to identify the INSafe contract opportunity as well as training space throughout the state.  The PTAC coordinated with the Indiana Small Business Development Center (ISBDC) network to allow Team Quality Services to utilize training facilities at the various ISBDC regional centers.  “Utilizing resources the State already has paid for only makes sense,” commented Chris Straw, president of Team Quality Services.

Team Quality Services also brought in the help of Safer Worker Systems, a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), to assist in execution of the contract.  “I am excited to work together with Team Quality Services to promote safety throughout Indiana,” said Thomas Black, owner of Safer Worker Systems, which is based in Fort Wayne.

Team Quality Services is a Service Disabled, Veteran Owned Business (SDVOB) and an industry leader in third-party quality and safety services for manufacturing, energy and construction industries.  With offices in the U.S, Canada and Mexico, Team Quality Services offers a comprehensive line of services designed to improve product quality and safety throughout the supply chain.

Telectro-Mek Inc.

Telectro-Mek, Inc. was founded in 1960 by Daniel G. Russ, alongside wife and business partner, Ruthie. Equipped with a handful of patents and a head full of dreams; Telectro-Mek opened its doors to furnish the world’s first Net Thrust Meter and Combined Contaminated Fuel Detector to military and commercial aerospace industries alike.

Indiana’s PTAC was first introduced to Telectro-Mek by Gil Perry in January of 2010. In the years following, Telectro-Mek has been guided through such successes as obtaining an ISO Certification, beginning participating in the Bid Match Program, and continued advancement in the expansion of engineering resources.

Such advancements have contributed greatly to the realization of the patented ECONOTHRUST System; a product envisioned by Daniel G. Russ long before the existence of necessary Full Authority Digital Engine Control system architecture existed on multi-turbine aircraft.    

Since Daniel’s passing, Telectro-Mek continues operations as a Small, Woman-Owned Business under President and Contract Administrator Ruthie Russ. With the addition of Steven Kelso as General Manager, Telectro-Mek is preparing a bid to the United States Navy on a Research and Software Proposal for its Intelligent ECONOTHRUST System claiming to reduce overall fuel consumption by 2-3% in multi-turbine aircraft.

Telectro-Mek was recently awarded a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract for its Combined Contaminated Fuel Detector by DLA Troop Support Philadelphia
