Northern invented and patented our own measurement device, VersaGage. This product was named runner up for product of the year by Metlfax Magazine.

Quality- ISO 9001:2008

At Northern, we earn a living by producing parts that other companies wont touch. Our investment in the latest sheet metal technology and our commitment to quality allow us to consistently hold extremely tight tolerances for our customers.

Iso 9001:2008 Certified

  In addition to being independently audited and certified as ISO 9001:2008, Northern has a long history of quality awards and certifications. Some examples include Ford's Q1 certification and being named supplier of the year for one of our major customers.

AWS Certified Welding Inspectors

  Northern currently has two CWIs with experience in D1.1, D1.3, D1.6, D9.1, and D15.1. Our welders are qualified in multiple GTAW, GMAW-S, GMAW, GMAW-P, FCAW, Laser Welding (LBW), and Hybrid Laser Welding (HLBW). Internal training classes cover both the fabrication and inspection aspects of each code.

In addition to AWS, Northern also has experience with WPS and PQR to ASME IX.

FARO Ion - measures 0.002 at 30'

  A laser tracker is similar to a CMM, except you can bring the tracker to the part. It can measure anything inside a 360' diameter. Measurements can be done on the fly, or compared to a 3D model.

See examples at Faro's video channel.



Niton Alloy Analysis - material grade identification

  Many different grades of material appear the same, but our customers want to be 100% confident that their product has been made with the correct alloy. Northern has invested in handheld metal alloy analyzers by Niton. This technology can ensure your 316L stainless steel component wasn't made with 316. It can also check to make sure the correct welding filler material was used.


  Northern invented VeraGage, a measurement tool that allows us to measure many different sheet metal attributes with amazing precision. This device works so well that we began selling the invention.
