The quality that is Halkey-Roberts is evidenced in many ways. Ongoing relationships with OEMs date as far back as the 1950s. Design and manufacturing are co-located utilizing concurrent engineering methodologies. Instead of designing in a vacuum, manufacturing informs design. To the extent that the properties of the material, the tooling, the molding, and the assembly process…become part of the conceptualization, not part of the reject pile. Once in production, the controlled environment for molding and assembly helps certify products to meet multiple industry standards.
