SOUTHBURY, CT-Quality solutions and services provider Juran Institute Inc . has acquired Baldrige.com. Juran’s legendary founder, Dr. Joseph M. Juran, was a particularly vocal advocate for the Baldrige program.

Prior to the passage of the congressional act that created the Baldrige Award in 1987, Juran testified in front of Congress on behalf of creating the award to help bring the focus of quality to the United States. Juran was also one of the original overseers in the Baldrige Award process. Throughout the years since the beginning of the Baldrige Award, Juran Institute has offered its own staff in support of the Baldrige process, many of whom have participated in the roles of judges, senior examiners, and examiners.

Juran Institute Inc. says it will continue to focus the site on its existing principles, which will be to offer insights and information on the Baldrige model as an archetype for performance excellence. The company will offer articles, links and information directly related to the Baldrige categories that will be both relevant and interesting to our readers.

“Our belief is that the US needs the Baldrige Award process and framework to help assure our country remains competitive around the globe for decades to come,” Juran Institute Inc. says. “We will do what we can to assure that happens.”
