Gurit Secures Automotive Market Accreditation Standard

30 August 2011

Gurit has secured Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance approval for ISO / TS 16949:2009.

ISO / TS 16949 is an ISO technical specification, which aligns existing American, German, French and Italian automotive quality systems standards within the global automotive industry, with the aim of eliminating the need for multiple certifications to satisfy customer requirements. ISO / TS 16949 details the management system requirements for the design/development, production, installation and servicing of automotive-related products.

According to Gurit, the new accreditation identifies them as well-structured, stable, and credible world-class automotive tier 1 supplier, aligned to OEM processes. They say by achieving this accreditation, they have proven they have a strong management system, dedicated to continuous improvement, and highlighted their serious intent to the on-going automotive business.

Kees Reijnen, General Manager Transport comments, “This milestone demonstrates that we have transferred the supply of composite components to automotive OEM's from a skilled art into an industrial process. Gurit now provides a transparent and robust process.”
