Dri-Eaz Products Inc. recently received the Washington State Quality Award at the Achievement Level. Dri-Eaz was one of only two companies that earned the WSQA recognition in 2002. Based on the criteria for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the WSQA has four possible recognition levels: Commitment, Achievement, Leadership and Excellence.

Based on the company’s written application, Dri-Eaz qualified for a site visit by WSQA examiners. The WSQA panel of judges deemed the application and site visit results worthy of the Achievement Level, indicating that Dri-Eaz “demonstrated a serious commitment to excellence and a process for continuous improvement,” according to WSQA guidelines.
