NPC's quality assurance activities are intended to supply the customer with products he/she can use safely. We have established our original quality policy, which is described below, in conformance with "ISO9001"*, the international standard of quality assurance systems, and "QS-9000"*2, the quality assurance system standard that are stipulated by the big three (US automobile manufacturers). We keep close communication among our departments from the planning to delivery of a product and organize the quality assurance system to actualize a consistent management and operations.
"NPC Puts the utmost emphasis on quality, provides satisfaction of its customers, and contributes to the progress of society through reliable products and services."
