The IATF 16949 certification is regarded as a globally recognized quality standard in the automotive industry and guarantees the highest possible level of quality and safety.
The regulations were developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), a working group of automobile manufacturers and associations.
End of November we received this certification in addition to our existing DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 certification. Several of our customers operate within the automotive industry.
Helen Stolz-Lingel, part of the management board, emphasizes the importance of this certification for the company. "Highest quality must be our requirement. With this certification we ensure the quality requirements for the automotive industry. But of course we also implement these high standards for our customers from other industries. We are therefore very pleased that we are now certified according to these very high requirements of the standard - especially as a medium-sized company. And we are proud of our entire team, which has contributed to this success".
Walter Richter, head of the quality department, also emphasizes the importance of this certification. "We are very pleased to receive this certificate, but it is only the beginning. We are well aware that we still have to work constantly on our processes. We must continue to develop standards, identify optimization potential and cannot rest on our laurels.
We have been evaluated by the independent certification body Intertek.
