“During its growth from a small start up to a company with a USDA licensed product, Quadraspec was in the need of consulting support in its operations. We needed a coach and an advisory for the Director of Operations as well as someone to build a systemic method for estimating current and future cost of goods. These processes invovled production technologies and overhead allocation methods. Quadraspec hired Blue Marble Medical to fulfill these needs. Andrew Cothrel embedded himself well within the Quadraspec Operations Team, developed a good solution, and supervised its implementation to the full satisfaction of the Quadraspec Executives.”
