Company Hires Chevelle King
CHARLOTTE, NC – February 25, 2020 – Quality Products & Machine, LLC, a leading manufacturer of precision metal components and fabricated assemblies, announced Tuesday that it has hired Chevelle King as its Office Manager effective immediately.
“Chevelle comes to us with previous experience as an office manager working in a manufacturing environment,” said Kevin Farmer, Quality Product’s President. “She has a great background in accounting, payroll, HR, and shipping, plus she is a team player.”
King began her career with Hyundai Merchant Marine, working initially as an accounts payable specialist before being promoted to export/import coordinator. She then was employed at Chiron America, a major manufacturer of CNC machining centers. Chevelle served as Chiron America’s service office manager for six years. She attended Strayer University in Charlotte and majored in accounting.
“I am extremely excited to work for Quality Products,” stated Chevelle. “Everyone has given me a very warm welcome. I am looking forward to being the best office manager I can for this company.”
“Chevelle was the best candidate we considered after interviewing a long list of highly qualified applicants,” explained Gary Holcomb, CEO of Compass Precision, LLC, the parent company of Quality Products and its sister firms Advanced Machining and Tri-Tec Industries. “She has extensive knowledge of SAP, QuickBooks, and Microsoft Office. Chevelle is very smart and friendly, attributes which will serve her well as Quality’s office manager.”
Quality Products operates from a 47,000-square-foot facility in Charlotte, NC at 4600 Westinghouse Boulevard. It manufactures complex prototype and low-to-mid volume metal parts, with a focus on power generation and defense markets.
Quality Products was founded in 1962. ZP Enterprises, LLC, an Atlanta-based firm, acquired majority interest in the company in 2010, then purchased the remaining ownership in 2018.
In 2019, ZP Enterprises decided to seek new ownership for three of its portfolio companies, including Advanced Machining & Tooling, LLC of Salisbury, NC and Tri-Tec Industries, Inc. of Charlotte, NC as well as Quality Products. It quickly reached an agreement with Main Street Capital Holdings, a Pittsburgh-based private equity firm. Main Street acquired Quality Products, along with its two sister firms, and placed them under a new umbrella company, Compass Precision, LLC.
