G&W Electric Co. is the first recipient of a new Product Certificate presented by the prestigious KEMA Laboratory in the Netherlands.

Sampling, which requires the manufacturer to supply more than one product sample, allowing lab personnel to randomly select which sample to test.
Quality system, which requires the manufacturer to be ISO 9001 certified for their quality systems.
Code of conduct, which requires the manufacturer to have a mission statement and company policies to guide the operations of the company toward product quality and customer satisfaction.
G&W received the Product Certificate for the latest extension to its Viper recloser product line, the Viper-LT.
