A Sign Company in Raleigh, NC with a Black Belt
Get your sign made from a Six Sigma Master Black Belt in Raleigh, North Carolina. Sounds dangerous! I think I’d be a little nervous around a person like that. Unless they were on my team of course and then I’d feel the opposite; really safe! I’m sure the other employees at SignCraft Solutions in Raleigh / Wake Forrest, NC don’t mind having Bob McEwen (The holder of the title Six Sigma Master Black Belt) on their side of the counter.
But what does having a black belt have to do with signage? Why does it matter if someone with a black belt makes your sign? That’s like having a software developer paint your house.
Well it turns out that this is not your typical type of black belt. It’s not a measure of proficiency in the martial arts. It’s a high level quality certification signifying excellence and it isn’t just handed out. With a BS degree in Civil Engineering, Bob McEwen has 15 years of experience in quality management and engineering in both manufacturing and financial services. He is very qualified in many different fields including signage.
And in signage it’s all about quality and a professional product. If I’m going to buy a sign and I have the option of someone with a black belt degree in quality, it’s not much of a choice. After all, everyone would love to have a black belt in something. Not only does it signify the mastery of something, it’s sounds cool.
