"You cannot inspect quality into a product, it has to be designed and built into the product."
-Randy Winegard


As products are developed, there are gated processes that are adhered to which drive designs to be robust and reliable, and also manufacturable. Throughout the development process, the designs undergo rigorous performance, reliability, environmental, regulatory and packaging testing.

Transitioning product designs into the manufacturing phase brings them into the comprehensive quality system that ensures product quality. There are many activities ingrained in the Winegard system that are the foundation of product quality: product specific work instructions, incoming product inspection, daily process and product audits, product functional and live testing operations. It is Winegard's objective to ensure all customer requirements are met prior to shipment.

Continuous Improvement at Winegard is a mindset that is part of the overall business objective. There are resources and tools in place to drive continuous improvement including a corrective and preventive action system. There is a commitment to improve our products, processes, systems and methods in order to provide customers with the best products and services.

After a product is successfully launched, Quality continues to be a key focus at the manufacturing level as well as customer service.
