Processes and Quality confirmed in latest Audit !

ISO TS 16949

Thermamax has been certified to the strict Quality standard ISO/TS 16949 since 2006. February 2013 saw the well-known solutions and partnership provider to OEMs and Tier 1 Suppliers in the Automobile industry re-certified for the third time.

The internationally recognised ISO/TS 16949 was introduced in 1999 and is the leading standard for Manufacturing Processes and Quality across the complete supply chain. The Automobile sector and it’s suppliers aim to continually improve processes and quality to raise customer satisfaction, identify risk and faults, and put in place the necessary corrective procedures. As a result, and in order to comply with the requirements, the ISO/TS 16949 standard has a certification-cycle of three years, backed up by the annual quality audit.

Daniel Langenbacher, Quality Manager at Thermamax: „Thermamax is a company that adapts itself with flexibility to the changing needs of the On-Highway market, thinks ahead and is steadily growing. That’s why we welcome these annual audit visits as a helpful instrument: They’re an important yardstick for our ability to compete in the market, and they show us where we can improve still further.“
 
In February 2013 Thermamax underwent the latest quality audit with the result – a successful re-certification and confirmation of standards compliance !
