Converge Security Backed by TAPA Certification

Consumers wouldn’t want to put their money in a bank if they weren’t sure that the money would be properly secured. In the same way, no company wants its valuable electronic component assets stored in a facility that is not adequately protected from theft or tampering.

Converge has long been committed to providing state-of-the-art security to protect all electronic assets within our 83,000-square-foot facility in Peabody, Massachusetts. In March, that facility received TAPA (Transported Asset Protection Association) certification for Freight Security Requirements through a third-party audit. TAPA certification has become a worldwide benchmark for security handling guidelines and practices to prevent cargo crime. The Freight Security Requirements set minimum standards for security and industry best practices for facilities that store and handle HVTT (high-value, theft-targeted) assets.

TAPA-certified companies must pass a stringent independent facility audit to ensure compliance with numerous requirements surrounding monitoring systems, access control, employee background checks, intruder security devices, and other areas of concern in warehouses and distribution centers.

Increasingly, manufacturers and suppliers of electronic components are looking for TAPA certification when vetting supply chain distribution partners. Whether the assets are passing through the Converge testing and inspection facility after purchase or being stored on consignment in our warehouse, our customers want assurance that we have the controls in place to keep their high-value assets safe. We understand why. At Converge, we are proud of our new TAPA certification and believe it serves as a testimony to our high security standards and our commitment to our clients’ needs.
