The Quality Associates team

Steve Neumaier started Quality Associates in 1990 and has been focused on the Michigan market.  He has primarily been focused on capital equipment, but has represented some consumable/distribution lines over the years as well.  Steve has always been very project focused, focused on helping his client base solve problems and grow.  Steve has an engineering background and decided to move into sales many years ago.  Steve is very technical in his sales approach and brings a consultative approach to his sales techniques.  Steve’s many years calling on the Michigan market has him extremely well known, trusted, respected, established, and tied into the client base.

Brad Kendall is a degreed Manufacturing Engineer (Eastern Michigan University) with 14 years (1986-2000) experience in manufacturing engineering in both the industrial computer electronics and automotive electronics industry.  Since 2001, Brad has been a manufacturer’s rep with REStronics and EAP.  In 2017, Brad joined Steve at Quality Associates, excited for the opportunity to be working with Steve.  Brad brings new excitement and motivation to grow the business and sales.  Having worked the Michigan (and Ohio) markets for 18 years, Brad is very highly respected and well tied into the client base.  In all his experience as a rep, Brad has thrived in both capital and distribution/consumable product sales.  Brad is very well tied into the distribution network and enjoys working with distributor partners doing buddy calls and local table top shows.  Brad has used and sold nearly every type of capital for PCB assembly as well as everything for the electronics bench including the bench (ESD controls, chemicals, hand tools, soldering stations, rework stations, microscopes, mag lighting, solder).  With his background, Brad sells with a technical sales approach and offers a lot of hands on demonstration and training for his clients.

Rick Emery comes to Quality Associates with an extensive background in the electronics industry having held roles in distribution sales as well as capital equipment sales. Rick worked in distribution sales for Stanley Supply and Services (Test Equity) and Kimco Distributing.  Rick also spent almost 7 years as a manufacturer's representative working for REStronics.  Rick most recently worked for Kahsar Sales for over 4 years. With Rick's career being in our industry and spent entirely working in the very territory he will cover for Quality Associates; Rick already has the connections with the client base.  We are confident Rick will elevate QA to a new level in the territory.  We have known Rick for over 30 years, and we are fortunate to now have him as part of our team!
