York Repair announced that it has been approved as an EASA Accredited Service Center for achieving excellence in quality. York is the first company in Lower Michigan to receive EASA Accreditation.
To earn this distinction, York has “successfully demonstrated through a third party, independent audit that it follows the prescribed good practices to consistently deliver quality electromechanical repairs that maintain or improve AC electric motor efficiency and reliability.”
“Our past certification with ISO 9000 helped prepare us for the EASA Accreditation process,” says President Kevin Krupp. “This is a brand new program that was rolled out last summer and we are excited to be one of the leaders in our industry to quickly adopt this new standard. The whole York team did a great job integrating AR100 from EASA into our existing quality system,” adds Krupp.
EASA, the Electrical Apparatus Service Association, and world-wide industry trade association created this international program to have specific guidelines in place for service centers to preserve the efficiency and reliability during electrical and mechanical repairs of electric motors.
Advanced Energy, from North Carolina was the third party auditor.
