SPIROL International Corporation, a global manufacturer of Engineered Fasteners, Shims and Installation Equipment, is pleased to announce that two of its manufacturing facilities have recently been certified to IATF 16949:2016.
IATF 16949 (which stands for International Automotive Task Force) supersedes ISO/TS 16949, the previous technical specification for the quality management systems of the automotive sector. The more stringent IATF 16949 is focused on achieving best practices when designing, developing, manufacturing, installing or servicing automotive products. The updated standard puts extra emphasis on risk-based thinking, process control and product traceability to ensure the highest quality and on time delivery for every manufactured lot and shipment. “These industry-leading quality system certifications represent the ongoing commitment by the entire organization at SPIROL to achieve high quality, high value, flexible and responsive manufacturing and customer service.” said Ken Hagan, Division President.
