Shermco Industries, a Texas-based test and equipment services provider, says it has become one of the first motor repair and remanufacturing companies to be fully accredited by the Electrical Apparatus Service Association under its new EASA Accreditation Program.
As EASA President and CEO Linda J. Raynes explains, ‘EASA's Accreditation Program, just launched this summer, offers external validation that the company adheres to good practices by submitting to an independent, third-party audit.’
The criteria for winning the certification are based on ANSI/EASA AR100-2010: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus and The Good Practice Guide of the Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency. Shermco's third-party audit was performed by Advanced Energy of Raleigh, N.C.
In addition to its new EASA Accreditation, Shermco says it has an ongoing ISO9001-2008 recognition for process excellence and the Proven Efficiency Verification certification program that ensures machine reliability and compliance with original designed efficiency standards for remanufactured motors and generators.
"We feel the EASA Accreditation, in addition to our ongoing ISO9001-2008 commitment, places Shermco in the forefront of remanufacturing technology and quality, giving our key commercial, industrial, wind energy and utility customers throughout the Southwest and Midwest U.S. the high level of confidence they deserve," comments Ron Widup, Shermco CEO.
