Focus on quality, but properlyFocus on quality, but properly
Lewis Yasenchak is a cofounder and principle of P&Y Management Resources, which he formed in 1994 with a former colleague with the mission to help promote and advance the principles of ‘Lean and Quality Management’ in plastics processing facilities, die/moldmaking operations, and precision metalworking shops. Put another way, he helps them install “an ISO quality system that is meaningful.” P&Y tailors the ISO certification process around a sound business system rather than tailoring the business to the standard.

MPW: How did P&Y come to be?
Yasenchak: I come from a corporate background in operations and finance, working internationally at the Johnson & Johnson family of companies and then for Hoechst Celanese until that company exited plastics in 1986. A Hoechst colleague, Zene Polhemus, and I formed P&Y that year. He later returned to Europe, and I’ve kept the name and the business going.
In 1993 I authored the “ISO 9000 for plastics” working guide to help processors work through the (then) new ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards. And I’m still helping them with that today.
