AMCA-ISO quality certification is developed exclusively for U.S. manufacturers with focus on machine shops and other custom manufacturers. It is the only quality accreditation that guarantees to increase your company’s profitability, competitiveness and productivity. Manufacturers certified to AMCA standards enjoy a quality recognition superior to ISO 9001 certification ALONE. Here’s why…
AMCA (American Made Customer Accredited) is a combination of being certified to American quality standards and compliant to ISO 9001 standards. Further, AMCA is the only quality certification program accredited by your own customers. In other words, your customers must approve you for certification based on performance ratings. Better yet, AMCA is the only registrar with a B2B network (AMN) connecting your company with prospective customers nationwide.
United We Stand; Together We Can
AMCA is boldly leading the fight to make quality certification cost-effective without the painful hassle of dealing with over-priced ISO registrars. This is why U.S. manufacturers nationwide are flocking to AMCA for their quality certification needs.
We have completely revolutionized quality certification here in the United States. It’s no longer just about being certified to some foreign based standard. Nor is it about paying thousands of dollars to achieve certification. AMCA has turned quality certification into a pro-American agenda representing REAL quality based on merit. Not pretend quality based on a certificate.
What Is AMCA-ISO Certification
AMCA is not another generic ISO certification. Although AMCA and ISO are both quality standards. They have different values and agendas. AMCA has a pro-American mission to help U.S. manufacturers become more competitive in the global marketplace. Whereas ISO has more of a globalist type agenda based on international rules and guidelines for the world to follow, directly or indirectly.
AMCA qualifies companies for certification based on actual performance such as customer ratings, BBB analysis, leadership assessment, QMS compliance, etc. ISO 9001 certification is primarily based on meeting basic standards intended for millions of companies around the world. AMCA boldly puts America first to support U.S. compamies and jobs. ISO obviously has no such allegiance to the United States or her citizens.
It’s important to understand AMCA and ISO are not competing standards. They serve different purposes. AMCA offers consultation for most ISO standards through our national network of quality professionals. In fact, we have the largest network of quality management consultants in the country covering 38 states, currently.
Quality Consultants: Backbone Of AMCA
All AMCA consultants are highly skilled in the manufacturing sector. We are the ONLY certification body (registrar) and standards developer that offers both AMCA and ISO certification. And we do NOT work with ISO ‘certificate mills’ selling bogus, self-accredited certificates. Beware of such scams! Fake ISO certificates are on the rise.
The fact is, ISO can be a valuable certification if implemented in a cost-effective manner by a quality management expert skilled in your particular industry or niche. Keep in mind, the consultant you hire will either make or break your certification. Hire the right one and you’ll be on easy street enjoying the benefits. Hire the wrong one and it will cost you dearly!
