Five Critical Points

  1. Customer Service Responsiveness: There is a single focal point to our unique customer service team orientation - communication. We stay in constant contact with our customers to provide the fastest possible response times to your questions and concerns.
  2. Aggressive Lead-Time/Delivery Performance: Where lead-time and delivery are concerned, Norstan stands apart from others in two ways. First is the huge effort we make to come through regarding the lead-times we quote you initially. Second, we are always working to reduce lead-times and respond to your priority needs.
  3. Engineering Excellence: Norstan's experienced engineers generate serious energy when it comes to meeting your new design specifications, or refining existing ones. The ability to reconfigure your designs and make them more efficient and cost effective is a special capability.
  4. Complete Quality Assurance: Few things are more important than quality. Performance relies on it, lives sometimes depend on it, certainly our reputation rests on it and so does yours. This is why we literally do everything in our power to publish and adhere to meticulous workmanship standards. We get our equipment, technology and processes as close to perfection as possible to eliminate any sub-standard parts.
  5. Higher-Tech and Innovation: Norstan uses what's new from a high-tech standpoint, but we also keep an eye out for what's next. We are also working with innovative monitoring equipment with the capability of shutting down a process or notifying us when the first part does not meet specifications. This allows us to make immediate corrections. It also assures less waste, cost and scrap.
