About Us

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 name of the corporation was changed to NS Corporation to reflect the company’s diversification. NS’ breadth in the marketplace is unmatched by any domestic or international competitor.

The NS team has the expertise to build quality wash systems that deliver a consistently clean, polished vehicle. The design simplicity of our systems deliver low maintenance and operating costs along with high customer satisfaction.

Much of NS Corporation’s long term success is attributable to its founder, one of the industry’s godfathers, G. Thomas Ennis. Mr. Ennis began washing cars in the mid 1950s. He ran his first car wash at the age of 20, in Sharon, PA, Valley Car Wash. In 1967, Mr. Ennis was issued his first patent for his wrap around brushes. “We deliver clean, dry cars with simple equipment. I have always tried to simplify design, rather than over engineer our equipment. I hope to benefit our customers in this way, maintenance costs are extremely low for our product line.”

Mr. Ennis’ philosophy is simple, “I just want to help our customers save and make more money by producing high quality, efficient vehicle wash equipment.” NS has emphasized in its design standards, wash systems that require less maintenance and also carry a smaller energy footprint. Mr. Ennis, also an owner/retail car wash operator adds, “Labor costs are increasing rapidly. Regulation is only intensifying. Operator’s utility bills are increasing. We want to help our customers lower their expenses and increase revenue.

As resources such as water and power become more scarce, the industry will face intense lobbying with regard to power and water usage. NS is way ahead of the industry here!” These are just a few simple ways that NS Corporation has set the standard and continues to blaze the trail in the vehicle wash marketplace.

Ultimately, “our success is directly a result of the success of our customers.” We look forward to working with you as partner in the 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, and if you’re interested in learning what our certification means for you, you’ve come to the right place.

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.

By eliminating those unwanted expenses, our company can save money, and when employees know that they’re working for a company that’s meeting goals and growing more and more by the day, that job satisfaction drives operational efficiency. At the end of the day, what started as a credibility leads to future growth, a stronger company, and more happy customers.

What Our Credibility Means for Our Customers

To make sure that the manufacturer you’ve set your eyes on 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.
