Quality Testing

Cortland employs a number of rigorous testing and quality assurance methods to maintain a consistently high quality of work in every aspect of our activities. 

Electrical and Fiber Optic Cable Testing and Quality Assurance

Cortland ensures that every cable produced meets or exceeds customer expectations. We can provide testing, quality control, documentation, and reporting procedures to meet any need. We have been certified to the ISO 9001 Quality Systems Standard by Det Norsk Veritas Certification, Inc. and we are listed in the Qualified List of Manufacturers of the Defense Logistics Agency.

Umbilicals, Hoses, and Electro-Mechanical Cables Quality Testing

To ensure that we achieve and maintain consistency of quality and supply, we have a quality system that is approved to BS EN ISO 9001:1994 by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance. Our product covers areas of applications, which are life support, and therefore quality assurance and control is paramount. We maintain this standard across the complete range of umbilicals, hoses, and electro-mechanical cables for offshore and subsea applications. Cortland also offers the capability to test the finished product to customer or regulation specification with appropriate and comprehensive documentation. Some market areas require more stringent test regimes than others, and we have the experience and expertise to offer the correct level of testing and documentation accordingly.
