Early dialogue with Nemko pays dividends
Nemko’s engineers are in dialogue with manufacturers concerning all relevant standards, testing, and they report immediately if a product fails any of the tests that will alter the schedule. Nemko welcomes customers to follow the testing in person or remotely. If a product fails a test, the worst case scenario is that it may be sent to the drawing board for redesign, causing a delay to market that could last weeks, months or even years in extreme cases. Such a delay is extremely rare for an experience manufacturer, such as Jotron.
