Northern Insulation

Quality Management

Northern Industrial Insulation Contractors Inc.’s (Northern) quality plan was developed with ownership in mind. Our concept of quality extends well beyond the quality of the end product. Northern’s team takes great pride in their work and are accountable for their workmanship. We believe the quality improvement process is not the sole responsibility of the QC department, but a function in which the whole organization participates. By everyone successfully doing all the small things, Northern can collectively achieve our objectives.

Northern management demonstrates involvement and leadership in the quality process. The commitment to building in quality is revealed in the Senior Vice President’s “Statement of Authority” which is found in our Quality Control Manual. Northern’s goal is to provide customers with quality products and guaranteed service.

We have a two part objective to Quality Assurance and Quality Control within Northern’s philosophy:

  • To assure customers the quality is “built-in”
  • To plan and to execute how that will be accomplished within the QA/QC guidelines


Our Quality Control program ensures that systems and procedures are in place to properly execute and deliver quality workmanship.

The Quality Control Manual describes the means by which we intend to implement this program. Customers benefit from our quality program by:

  • Understanding who is responsible and accountable in our organization
  • Understanding how we improve the quality of our work
  • Being able to compare our system with their own when assessing needs
  • Knowing that systems are in place to assure compliance and address non-compliance
  • Avoiding additional overhead costs in the form of administration and supervision.
