The continual proactive improvement of our own processes and a high-quality awareness have always been part of our corporate philosophy. The IATF (International Automotive Task Force) now confirmed this for us when we successfully subjected ourselves to a certification according to standard IATF 16949. The certification proves that we fulfill its high QMS requirements, implement continuous improvement processes and take up customer-specific requirements. The focus of the standards is on enhanced risk management, fault prevention, reducing fluctuations and inefficiency.
Since 2016, IATF 16949 has been ensuring the harmonization of standards for improving product quality for automotive customers. The basis of the standard is ISO 9001, which was specifically based on points directed at the automotive criteria. For most OEM and Tier 1/2 suppliers, an IATF certification is the prerequisite for cooperation. In addition, extensive multiple certifications are avoided as a result of the uniform standard, thereby saving time and costs.
