Getting an industry certification can benefit any business. Reliability, expertise and unique capabilities can be conveyed to customers by the certifications listed on a company’s website.
One company that knows this well is Newcomb Spring. This leading spring manufacturer includes a comprehensive listing of qualifications and downloadable certificates on its website.
A source of trust
Companies can use certifications to show customers they are professional and trustworthy. For instance, certification to ISO 9001 quality management standards can signal to customers that a company is dedicated to quality and has an adequate quality assurance process.
Newcomb Spring has invested in the best quality control equipment available so that its customers can have confidence in its products.
“Customers rely on Newcomb Spring for quality parts and compliance to specifications, and we efficiently produce coil springs and metal forms with the strictest tolerance requirements,” the company explains.
Up to standards
In many industries and applications, special certifications are required before a manufacturer can even be considered by a potential customer. Some examples include military specifications and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). In these cases, it’s important that companies make their certifications known to show customers that their capabilities, processes and products meet all of the requirements.
For example, Newcomb Spring is certified to military specifications MIL-STD-29A and MIL AS13572 Grade B. This means that the company’s spring design and manufacturing processes are approved for use by the military. Newcomb Spring is also ITAR certified, which is a prerequisite for dealing with some defence-related products in the United States.
The certification page on company websites also offers a chance to show customers what sets the organization apart from the competition. This information can include company policies or memberships in trade organizations. Newcomb Spring has posted a complete conflict minerals policy that follows the objectives of section 1502 from the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The goal of the policy is to prevent the use of minerals that finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries.
A listing of certifications can tell customers a lot about the company and influence the first impression. Visit the Newcomb Spring website to learn more about its certifications.
