The basic foundation for everything we do here at New England Etching Company (NEE) is our Quality Assurance System.
From the company’s very inception in the 1930s as a manufacturer of high-end etched and plated products NEE’s reputation and brand have been inseparably tied to high quality. Painstaking craftsmanship and experience have been built upon driven by the needs and requirements of an ever diversified customer base.
One of the earliest NEE QA systems was designed as per Mil-I-45208. This specification establishes requirements for government contractor’s inspection systems. These requirements pertain to the inspection and tests necessary to substantiate product conformance to all drawings, specifications and other contract requirements.
Over the years these somewhat reactionary-based quality systems have been replaced by international standards with all encompassing prevention and continual improvement-based quality management systems. NEE proudly maintains full accreditation with ISO 9001 and AS 9100.
