The Quali-Tech offices are attached to the manufacturing and warehousing structure in Rancho Dominguez, California. A second manufacturing plant is being outfitted in Mexico.
The company has shown excellent growth ever since it was founded to import little paper umbrellas for tropical drinks, a product still in evidence when we began working with them.
Controlling this vast inventory requires very sophisticated computer systems and software, so Quali-Tech continues to improve their systems. When we first became involved, they were running on a 486 connected by serial cable to a half dozen "green screen" terminals. This has evolved to a networked system with around 20 workstations and multiple servers. The network evolved from 10BaseT (10 megabits/sec) to 100BaseT (100 megabits/sec), and then to switched 100BaseT.
