Nova Advantages

While Nova manufactures, stocks, and supplies many imported parts, it sets itself apart by offering the following value added services:

  • Nova/TCB USA, Inc. is a minority owned, TS16949 certified corporation. The company has been in business at this site since 2001 with a staff representing over 100 years of experience in the Automotive and Bearing industries.
  • Nova/TCB is the importer of record on all inbound shipments from our off shore plants.
  • APQP is followed to insure process flow.
  • All product received into Nova's warehouse is subjected to sampling plans developed in conjunction with the customer's requirements and Nova's quality assurance procedures.
  • An on-site inspection lab is utilized to verify incoming product. Delays from the use of off-site inspection sources are typically avoided.
  • A full-time technical staff is available to assist you with technical questions and/or concerns.
  • Nova typically warehouses 6-8 weeks of stock in its facility. This alleviates the risk of delayed shipment which is unfortunately common when dealing with offshore entities.
  • Nova certifies its manufacturing facilities via repeated on-site visits throughout the year and contracts with its strategic partners in Asia and India as needed.
  • Level III PPAPs are typically provided for all components that Nova manufactures and provides.
  • Nova encourages its customers to visit its manufacturing facility in TN, China, and off shore where their components are being manufactured (pending confidentiality agreement and scheduling).
  • Nova can offer KanBan shipping arrangements when required.
  • Nova actively pursues continuous improvement in their processes and capabilities in an effort to enhance customer satisfaction.
