Norwood & BIC Graphic meets the rigorous qualifications to
receive the promotional products industry’s only certification dedicated to
product quality, product safety, supply chain security, social accountability
and environmental stewardship.

QCA Seal

The Quality
Certification Alliance (QCA), the promotional product industry’s only
independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping companies provide
safe products, has granted QCA Accreditation to Clearwater, Florida-based
Norwood & BIC Graphic North America.

To achieve QCA Accreditation, Norwood & BIC Graphic North
America completed a rigorous self-assessment, followed by submitting its
headquarters, its Sleepy Eye and Red Wing, Minnesota-based domestic facilities
and its offshore supply base to multiple third-party audits. The QCA board then
reviewed a scorecard representing the performance of the company and its supply
chain on the third-party audits as the foundation for granting

“While Norwood & BIC Graphic
has already had a comprehensive, best in class, compliance program in place for
many years, the QCA Accreditation process proved very valuable,” said Emmanuel
Bruno, vice president and general manager of Norwood & BIC Graphic North
America. “Today, our compliance program is documented in more detail, and we
have conducted more training to ensure consistent application of all processes.
We know from our distributor customers that more and more end buyers insist upon
compliance, and they need a basis for selecting suppliers that will fit within
these requirements. QCA Accreditation is the recognized symbol of quality and
compliance in our industry, and it increases our distributors’ confidence when
selling our products.”
