QCA Certifies Bodek and Rhodes, Design Resources/Caps Direct
"To our customers, QCA Accreditation means two things: confidence and peace of mind," Rhodes said. "Because we are QCA Certified, we are more confident that we have a quality, safe product that will please the customer consistently, every time. In turn, our distributors can more confidently show and sell our products—even to the most competitive Fortune 1000 companies that insist on quality assurance partners—because they have peace of mind that we have compliance standards and controls in place. They now have that advantage as our partner."
Krakow agreed, saying, "Our customers can be confident that we have a mechanism for ongoing partnership with them to help navigate the complex issues of product safety and compliance. Top brands need this confidence, and obtaining QCA Certification confirms our ability to deliver this to them."
