The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has issued Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP) certificates to two manufacturing companies in Anambra state.
The Coordinator of SON in Anambra, Mr Olalekan Omoniyi, who issued MANCAP certificates to the firms lauded the improvement in their production and technological processes.
He commended the Nigerian companies; Godwin Okafor and Sons Ltd. and Jezco Oil Nigeria Ltd., manufacturers of Winco Foam and Jezco Oil for meeting up with the laid down industrial standards.
Omoniyi said that they could be great players in global markets, if they stuck to the standards that earned them the certificates.
“For Godwin Okafor and Sons, they have come a long way in the foam manufacturing industry, they have received MANCAP certificate before now, but we are here to recertify their products, having been able to uphold the standards.
“I am impressed with the improvement in their production process; before, they use to mix chemicals in drums, but here it is, the prices that guarantees quality of products and safety of workers,” he said.
Omoniyi also commended Jezco Oil for their full Synthetic Engine Oil 5W/30 API SN and Synthetic Engine Oil 5W/40 API SN ranges, which he said, were good for longer engine life.
He urged the awardee companies to inscribe their MANCAP logo on their products, adding that lowering the quality of their products could lead to withdrawal of their certificates.
