QM system

Since our quality management system is certified to TS16949:2009 we satisfy the requirements of the automotive industry.

TS16949:2009 is based on quality standard ISO 9001 but it was supplemented by meeting the specific needs and requirements of the automotive industry. As a result of the merger of the companies Daimler-Benz and Chrysler the standards framework of the American and European automotive industries evolved to become TS16949:1999. Following revision of the ISO 9000 series and integration of the process-oriented approach, TS16949:1999 was restructured. That ultimately produced the current, process-oriented version, TS16949:2009.

In recent years, ISO/TS 16949 has increasingly become established as a worldwide standard for the automotive industry and it now also encompasses most of the associated supply industry. We apply these rules in order to create optimal process conditions and trouble-free delivery conditions for our customers, the automobile manufacturers and suppliers throughout the industry. For this purpose, ISO/TS 16949 constitutes a basis for further complementary measures and programmes in which – with continuing success – we endeavour to reduce error rates and process risks.
