October 3, 2018 (Dayton, OH)–PQ Systems, global provider of software solutions and services to help manufacturers succeed in improving quality, was named a winner in the Goering Center’s Family and Private Business Awards in a celebration event on September 11.

The awards showcase Cincinnati region businesses whose unique successes have contributed to the economy and to community growth. PQ was identified among private businesses with 16-75 employees. More than 500 businesses are nominated each year for the distinction. Only one company each year receives the honor, which “exemplifies what private business is and should be,” according to a Goering release.

As award winner, PQ Systems was evaluated by an independent panel of judges who reviewed applications with respect to their positive impact on the community.
“Our commitment to never-ending improvement and to fostering the ‘joy in work’ that W.
