Seizmic is pleased to announce that after two years of preparation, the company’s SMHE, Inc. division has obtained accreditation from the International Accreditation Service (IAS). SMHE is the division of Seizmic that focuses on testing of material handling components. This designation, which took more than 200 pages of documentation and multiple inspections from an outside standards body means that all testing equipment within SMHE’s facility, have met the qualifications for certification. SMHE is the only firm in the material handling industry that currently holds the IAS testing certification.
“Seizmic wanted to raise the bar for material handling testing by achieving accreditation that doesn’t currently exist in our industry. It truly gives us an edge with customers, by ensuring that the structures and/or equipment we test meet all government standards to keep safety at the top of the priority list,” said Sal Fateen, CEO of Seizmic, Inc. “We have worked hard for many years to achieve this accreditation and will continue to add new testing standards to our services offered.”
This third-party endorsement of SMHE will benefit material handling product manufacturers and ultimately the end-user. It ensures that the products tested will perform at the specified parameters, which in turn helps create a safe working environment. SMHE has a state of the art testing facility at its headquarters in Covina, California – a suburb of Los Angeles. In addition to standardized testing, the company has the capability to offer customized testing to meet unique challenges a manufacturer or end user may encounter.
