VeriForm’s Vision for the Future
A huge thank you goes out to you, our customers and vendors, for making our story possible.You made it possible for VeriForm to commit to innovation, growth and sustainable business philosophies which has lead us to this remarkable milestone…..20 years of being in business from 1997 to 2017!
At VeriForm, our constant drive to be better, remain relevant and invest in our customer’s success have been the foundation to our business. We’ve survived roadblocks and recessions, but what’s strived to keep the business alive is our commitment to our 3 core principles:
We believe in supporting the community that drives our business. VeriForm supports the health and functional autonomy of local families, and empowers local business to help sustain and build a stronger sense of community. Our partnership with the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce and many good non profit organizations like the Food Bank and Meals on Wheels keeps us linked to our neighbours. In fact we believe strongly that a business must have heart that goes beyond just making a profit.
At VeriForm, we take our environmental footprint seriously. VeriForm is among global leaders like Google, Nike and HSBSC that have committed to making their entire operations carbon neutral. Becoming Canada’s 4th company to achieve ISO 50001 certification helped us integrate energy management into our overall efforts and make more informed decisions on how we consume and use energy. We are in fact the first manufacturer in the Waterloo region to deliver on this promise by cutting our annual CO2 emissions from 242 tonnes to under 61 tonnes. That is a 75% reduction all while expanding our business space by 146% which makes it all the more incredible that our staff achieved this reduction. And since 2015 we have purchased carbon offsets from Canadian sources to make us carbon neutral !
We are committed to empowering our customers, employees and local community through the power of education. We see it as the greatest opportunity to bring value to society and influence the future, for the better. Not only do we pay for our staff to take classes after work, we also support the non profit Suzuki String School of Guelph through volunteering and generous financial support since 2011 to enable children for financially strapped families to attend weekly classes.
VeriForm’s vision for the future is deeply rooted in our 3 pillars of focus. We believe that investing in our customers, employees and local community will in time help to build a better, more successful world for future generations. The future starts now, at VeriForm.
Continuous improvement is not a destination – it’s a constant journey.
From the start, we listed a handful of customer service objectives: dedication to personalized service within 24 hours of initial contact, ensuring only the highest quality output by using the ISO 9000-2008 quality system and adherence to critical lead times of 98% or better on time delivery. And then we insisted that all of our people strive to constantly improve themselves, because for VeriForm, continuous improvement is not a destination, it’s a constant journey. And it’s worked. VeriForm’s customers have always reported significant savings in assembly, thanks to the accuracy of VeriForm parts and components. That attention to detail has carried over to every product and process at VeriForm, all of which results in a documented, on-time delivery rate of more than 91 per cent.
