The company is participating in the comprehensive compliance program to help protect the brands of distributors and their end-buyer clients.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (February 24, 2020) – Quality Certification Alliance (QCA), the only coalition dedicated to ensuring accountability and independent validation of corporate responsibility throughout the promotional product industry’s supply chain, has awarded QCA Accreditation to Foamworx (operating out of Calais, Maine, and Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, Canada).

QCA Accredited companies endorse a self-certification, complete a rigorous self-assessment, and then submit their headquarters and their supply base to multiple third-party audits. The QCA board uses a scorecard representing the performance of the applicant and its supply chain on the third-party audits as the foundation for granting accreditation.

“With QCA Accreditation, distributors are assured that their products are being made with quality and safety in mind. They will have no concerns with us or our supply chain regarding compliance, social responsibility or environmental stewardship,” said Heather Garner, Foamworx CEO. “Having streamlined internal processes and with documentation readily available, we are able to respond to distributor inquiries quickly and confidently. Being QCA accredited is invaluable, and we are a stronger company having gone through this process.”
