After years of hard work we are proud to announce that we have achieved the prestigious automotive standard IATF 16949. Many of the larger Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) require their suppliers to attain IATF 16949 and this registration will allow us to widen our horizons with a view to working with more OEMs. The IATF 16949 standard is a Quality Management System which incorporates ISO 9001 but has supplemental requirements specific to the automotive industry.
Our team has risen to the challenge of understanding, implementing and working within the standard. It has not been easy and there will always be the continuous improvement roundabout to negotiate, but we are confident that we are now on a steady trajectory to achieve more customers, more interesting engineering challenges and a brighter future for all of us.
We could not have managed to achieve this standard without the tireless, patient and gracious assistance of Aspen Global, All 3 Circles and Quality Partner who all gave us the insight and knowledge we needed to understand the basis of lean manufacturing and continuous improvement.
We look forward to using IATF 16949 to attract new OEMs, and to providing them with engineering solutions to their mechatronic needs.
