Ingenious Quality

About Us

Ingenious Quality offers consultancy in a variety of High Technology areas and specialises in the Semiconductor, Electronics and Software industries although we have supported many other engineering and manufacturing businesses.

Ingenious Quality has also accepted an invitation to join the BSi Associate Consultant Programme. As BSi cannot referee their own work (offer consultancy and then offer registration) they have partnered up with a selection of consultants who have met certain criteria and in whom they trust to ensure that potential clients requests are handled effectively.

We also work regularly with Alcumus ISOQAR who are also a UKAS accredited certification body and we are therefore also registered with the ISOQAR Associate Network programme (IAN).

As a company that believes in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ensuring that our obligations to the environment are fulfilled.

The Ingenious Quality founder, Dr. Trevor Gainey is an experienced Quality and Reliability executive complemented by a background in Engineering and R&D management. He has extensive knowledge of the semiconductor, hybrid microelectronics, MEMS and circuit board assembly sectors.

He has worked for major companies in the UK and the USA manufacturing hybrid microcircuits, micro machined sensors and integrated circuits supplying the Telecommunications, Consumer Electronics, Automotive and Mil/Aerospace application environments.

Trevor's last post was as Vice President of Quality and Reliability in a UK based fabless semiconductor company in the consumer power conversion market (a former Ingenious Quality client). In this role he established the quality and environmental management systems leading to full ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications with zero non-conformities. He also supervised the qualification of their first major product offerings with explicit qualification stress testing. The excellent product quality is shown by a gross customer returns rate of less than 1ppm and a valid customer returns rate of less than 0.1ppm during his tenure with the company.

Prior to founding Ingenious Quality he was Customer Quality and Reliability Director for a US semiconductor Corporation responsible for over US $1.5 Billion worth of I.C. shipments to customers in Europe, North America and Pan Asia including many well known customers in the Storage, Consumer and Telecommunications markets.

Trevor can trace his family history back to the late 1500's in the Wiltshire area of the West of  England but the Gainey name and it's variations are believed to have their origins around the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 and be a derivative of the Anglo/Norman name "Engaigne" meaning ingenuity - hence Ingenious Quality!
