Anderson Manufacturing Earns ISO/TS 16949 Certification

Press release date: May 16, 2014

BRISTOL, WI — Anderson Manufacturing has earned ISO/TS 16949 certification for its facility in Bristol, Wisconsin, where it manufactures cold formed fastener solutions and standard and specialty pins and rivets. ISO/TS 16949 certification is a technical specification overseen by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) to define common quality system standards in the automotive supply chain worldwide.

ISO/TS 16949 certification requires a supplier to meet rigorous standards in design, development, production and (as applicable) the installation and servicing of automotive products. The certification enables Anderson Manufacturing to align its quality management systems with its automotive customers’ strict requirements. Without a valid certificate, parts manufacturers are unlikely to serve a Tier 1 supplier and cannot supply standard parts to OEMs in the auto industry.

“This certification shows the importance we place on organizing our processes and procedures to meet or exceed our automotive clients’ expectations,” said Tim Cash, Vice President of Anderson Manufacturing. Cash noted that the certification process emphasizes the goal of defect elimination and requires intensive employee training and extensive data collection and monitoring. “Some of our unique strengths, like highly experienced staff, preventative maintenance and equipment including six-die, six-blow cold heading machines, all contribute to the quality control, fast turnaround and speed to market required for certification,” Cash said.

Anderson Manufacturing is a trusted supplier to automotive manufacturers, providing products such as complex cold formed terminals, pins, semi-tubular rivets, shoulder rivets, screws, contacts, threaded forming screws, self-tapping screws, clinch studs and anti-cross threaded product. The company also offers secondary operations including thread rolling, tapping, grinding, sorting and packaging, and value-added services such as cost reduction and manufacture ability reviews.

Founded in 1976, Anderson Manufacturing is also ISO 9001:2008 certified and operates a 52,000-sqare-foot facility in Bristol, Wisconsin, where it runs two shifts daily. In 2011, Anderson Manufacturing was the first cold heading manufacturer to earn Supplier of the Year from one automotive manufacturer. In addition to the automotive industry, Anderson provides engineered fasteners and components for the electronics, medical, furniture, battery, appliance, houseware and hardware industries.
