Texas Quality Assurance was founded by Kyle Chambers. Kyle grew up in a small town, Italy Texas pronounced “It-Ly” for those of you not local to the small town off of 35E just south of Dallas.
Below is the story about who and what Texas Quality Assurance direct from the founder.
My degree is in Management Information Systems, I got my CompTIA A+ certification in the 8th grade, safe to say I’m a Geek. Many years ago I was volunteered to start a Health and Safety program for the company I was working at. See I had been at a hospital doing help desk work and we all agreed it was NOT for me. So I started at this small gas turbine repair company. Within the first year I had their IT needs more than met, website rebuilt and pretty much had worked myself out of a job, not a good position to be in for a newly wed man with a little 6 month old boy at home. I prayed on what to do and later volunteered to get ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 certified in less than 12 months.
I quickly found myself working incredible hours 6-7 felt like 8 days a week. By now we had two little boys at home, and this life was not working for a family. I knew something had to change, and had to change fast. I took the weekend off, spent time with the family, thought about it, prayed about it, and knew what I was going to do. I marched right into my VP’s office that Monday and told him I was going to take two weeks to shut my door, lock it and unplug the phone. Two weeks later I emerged with the first early version of what would late become TQA-Cloud.
Not long after this a consultant we were loosely using was amazed at the simplicity and detail of our system. See he had a client that was API Q1 and 6A certified, and as you know if you loose your stamp you pretty much loose your business. He was given a 60 day ultimatum to get onto an electronic file system. I showed up when 47 days were left. So it was off to the races to not only build a QMS from scratch, but build a server to go with it. Today we use Office 365 as our backbone, but it didn’t exist back then. With 6 days left till his next audit, we got him going.
Its been hard work and dedication to helping our clients save time and energy for what matters most to them. I couldn’t be happier to be doing, working with the people I work with, what I’m doing, and thank God for the opportunity to do it.
Proverbs is a favorite book of ours. It was mostly written by King Solomon, who was granted great wisdom from God.
Integrity – Proverbs 28:6 “Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.” The owners promise to always be honorable in business. We personally create each bid package to ensure the best QMS at the lowest price that is fair to all parties.
Generosity – Proverbs 13:4 “One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.” One company goal is to contribute a portion of our profits to local charities.
Diligence – Proverbs 11:24-25 “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.” Our employees work diligently on each QMS and are expected to meet all deadlines you have.
Proactive – Proverbs 14:23 “In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.” Our employees are expected to look for any issues that might arise before turning your system over to you.
