Certification Firm Receives Further Testing Accreditation
The accreditation also applies to other safety glazing materials for autos.
The agency, known as AMECA, advises that it made the decision after the firm showed itself qualified to produce technically valid test data and results.
AMECA is a central, one-stop program that notifies government, industry and the public about motor vehicle safety equipment that has been tested by laboratories it accredits and that comply with applicable federal standards.
Kim Phillipi, Entela's president, said the firm is proud to be able to expand its services to include testing to the agency's standards.
"This demonstrates our commitment to quality, which will insure our customers of receiving the most reliable and accurate test data possible," she said.
Entela, headquartered at 3033 Madison Ave. SE, was founded as a Michigan corporation 28 years ago and now is an international company, with facilities in Taipei, Taiwan, Detroit, Boston and Toronto.
It provides ISO 9000 and 14000 testing and certification in Mainland China as well as Taipei and North America. It also tests for TE Supplement, ISI/TS 16949, TL 9000 and VDA 6.1
In addition to management system registration, the firm — which asserts that it is one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the state — also provides full product testing, systems and material-component testing and failure analysis, plus engineering services, accelerated testing and failure mode verification testing.
