San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2015
Sloan Electromechanical Service & Sales, a San Diego-based provider of repairs and maintenance for electromechanical systems such as motors, generators, and controls joined the small group of EASA accredited service centers on February 9, 2015.
EASA (Electrical Apparatus Service Association) is an international trade organization comprising nearly 2,000 electromechanical service and sales firms. Upholding motor repair and maintenance best practices has been vital to EASA since it was founded in 1933, but the recent introduction of this accreditation program further defines the industry standard. Accreditation is a process in which certification of competency, authority or credibility is presented. “We wanted to come up with a methodology and an audit that would demonstrate that reliability and efficiency can be maintained through the process of repair,” commented EASA Senior Technical Support Specialist Tom Bishop.
“When EASA made accreditation available, we didn’t hesitate to apply to the program,” commented Jerry Gray, President of Sloan Electromechanical Service & Sales. “Sloan has a long history with EASA and already upholds EASA best practices. Accreditation gives our customers added peace of mind and improves the repair and maintenance experience overall. Quality has its cost, but poor quality has definitely a higher cost,” he added.
Sloan’s EASA accreditation affirms commitment to excellence in quality, reliable motor repair that maintains full efficiency and function of equipment. It ensures that Sloan will deliver consistent electromechanical service that meets up-to-date industry best practices.
The accreditation program benefits customers because choosing to work with only EASA certified motor repair service centers ensures consistent quality, reliability, and efficiency. The program also helps customers understand their repairs with reports that explain where problems occurred and exactly why.
Sloan underwent an independent, third-party audit to become an EASA accredited service center. Using a checklist of 23 categories and more than 70 mandatory requirements, the auditor reviewed previous repair documents, observed Sloan’s service practices, and reviewed the calibration status of all equipment. Regular auditing is required to maintain accreditation.
To date, Sloan is one of only two EASA accredited service centers in California and the only one in Southern California.
While EASA accreditation is open to non-members, Sloan has been a dedicated EASA member for over 40 years. Jerry Gray, President of Sloan, currently serves on EASA’s International Board of Directors.
