Mr. George H. Hummel, IQC’s Co-Founder, is a member of the US TAG to ISO/TC 176, the committee responsible for writing and revising the ISO 9001 series of standards for the U.S. and Mrs. Jeanette Hummel, IQC’s Co-Founder and President, pictured below, has developed numerous training programs and process improvement techniques widely used in thousands of U.S. businesses today. The Hummel’s family business was formally established in 1982 as Developmental Training Systems, Ltd. In the early 1990s, the name was changed to Interstate Quality Consultants, Inc.
Today, the business is known as IQC – the ISO Professionals and it is owned and run by George and Jeanette’s son, Seth.
Herbert Hummel, Top Row, Far Right, Toyota Executive 1960’s, and 1970’s.
In the 1960s, Mr. Herbert Hummel was hired away from Volkswagen by Toyota and promptly sent to Japan to learn the now “world-renowned” Toyota Production System. Mr. Hummel studied in Japan for over 2 years with Mr. Taiichi Ohno and Mr. Shigeo Shingo, among others, and was appointed the U.S. Director for establishing an auto dealer presence in the United States. Toyota challenged Mr. Hummel to use the TQC methodologies he learned in Japan to streamline dealership development and creation and to use that process to help further establish Toyota within their new market. Under Herbert’s leadership, a two-year dealership set up process was quickly turned into an efficient and effective three-month cycle with the implementation of TQC methodology. This initial success formed the groundwork for IQC and our sister company, Maximum Potential, Inc.
A company’s foundation is one of the things that customers and clients unconsciously check because it’s where all the secrets lie. That’s the truth, but that’s not the only thing clients want to find about a company or an organization they plan on working with.
It’s safe to say that experience is one of the most crucial aspects of knowledge and skill, and we here at IQC – the ISO Professionals are proud of it.
