Designing and building superior equipment has been a tradition at NS Corporation since its inception in 1961 when founder G. Thomas Ennis recognized the need for more efficient and reliable vehicle wash systems. Located in Inglewood, California, NS Corporation is the largest vehicle wash manufacturer on the West Coast. NS Corporation is an ISO 9001:2015 and UL certified company that maintains the highest levels of quality in the industry.
NS Corporation was originally incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1967 as NS Car Wash Enterprises, Inc. In the late 1970s, NS responded to the needs of the transit sector and expanded its engineering and manufacturing capacity to fulfill the vehicle cleaning requirements of bus, truck, and rail operations. In March 1980, the company name was changed to NS Corporation to reflect the company’s diversification. NS Corporation’s breadth in the marketplace is unmatched by any domestic or international competitor, as we satisfy consumer demand in three segments: transit, fleet and commercial car washing.
NS Corporation builds wash systems that deliver consistently clean, dry and polished vehicles. The systems are designed with simplicity in mind, so as to not over-engineer the product-line. The design simplicity delivers lower maintenance and operating costs, a smaller energy footprint and overall higher customer satisfaction.
As resources such as water and power become more and more scarce, the industry will face intense lobbying with regard to power and water usage. Businesses today all seek a smaller environmental footprint. At N/S Wash, we are always looking for ways to innovate solutions that will not only help our customers but the environment as well. NS Wash Systems are designed to minimize water and power consumption, lowering operating costs for the owner / operator. Ultimately, our success is directly a result of the success of our customers. We look forward to working with you as partner in the vehicle wash industry and remain committed to your long-term success.

Information About Our Certifications
As mentioned previously, here at NS Corporation, we’re proud to be an ISO 9001:2015 certified company.
ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization, and it is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. While ISO does not issue certifications on their own, they equip external certification bodies with the standards they need to make the industry a more efficient place—by giving state-of-the-art specifications to deserving products, services, and companies that follow good practices, and giving the global marketplace the requirements they need to ensure customer satisfaction on an international scale.
At the end of the day, these certifications are a way for companies like ours to demonstrate to our customers that our products and services will meet their every expectation.
ISO 9001:2015—It’s All About Quality Management
The standards in the ISO 9000 family, which our certification at NS Corporation falls under, are all about quality management. ISO 9001:2015 focuses on a company’s ability to consistently provide products that meet their customer’s requirements, and the ability to make sure that quality is consistently being improved.
To ensure that companies which have already been certified continue to keep up with their standard’s requirements, rigorous audits are held annually and only the companies that follow the industry’s best practices get to keep their certifications.
What Our Credibility Means for Our Organization
Our ISO 9001:2015 certification provides us with the perfect platform for customer feedback, where we can measure product quality, delivery time, and levels of customer satisfaction. By using that knowledge, we can reduce the likelihood of our products being recalled and our name being damaged, which in turn helps us build brand equity.
What Our Credibility Means for Our Customers
To make sure that the manufacturer you’ve chosen can be trusted, look for a validated ISO certification. At NS Corporation, all of our vehicle wash systems are known for their performance and longevity, and because every aspect of our company is constantly being reviewed, improved and documented, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing our products and services truly are of the utmost quality.
