Box Scientific Quality Statement

At Box Scientific, we make a no-compromise commitment to ensuring that all products perform at the highest level of performance.

All units are ISO Certified. We also maintain active CE binders for all units with some 300 pages of compliance and safety verifications and/or failure testing for every component of every unit.

Once the units are assembled, they get 100% inspection on each unit at 3 different gates.   Manufacturing does 100% functional testing on each unit prior to release.  We then do 100% inspection on each product.  This includes physical inspection, fitment of all accessories and functional testing.  We then pack out the box with all accessories, then go back and do a 100% shipping inspection on each completed package.  The packages are then checked one more time by our shipping staff before any shipment goes out the door.  

Our testing and inspection practices are perhaps the most robust in the industry. 

 Nothing goes out our door that hasn’t been inspected 3 times. 

We are proud  that this is our 10th year without a single defect.
