Creative Composites demonstrated their commitment to providing the highest levels of customer service by achieving accreditation to the TS 16949 global automotive quality standard.
According to Creative Composites, the TS 16949 standard is the international benchmark for the automotive industry. The standard ensures that Creative Composites manufactures and delivers high quality composite components to the rigorous standards set by customers. The TS16949 standard examined Creative Composites process efficiency, product quality and ability to deliver on time. This certification follows on from a recent announcement that Creative Composites has invested in its new state of the art quality laboratory to continuously develop measurement systems.
Jonathan Holmes, Commercial Director said “We have been manufacturing composite components for the automotive industry for a number of years and attaining TS16949 is a great endorsement of our performance in this sector. TS16949 is a coveted quality standard that will allow Creative Composites to offer our award winning service to more customers.”
Jonathan continues “We are a dynamic and forward thinking company. The company’s quality manufacturing and high level of customer service gives benefits to our customers who select Creative Composites ahead of European competition. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) need a reliable supply chain and certification to TS 16949 means Creative Composites will offer composite components to proven levels of quality. Our team are keen to collaborate with global OEMs to develop parts that are manufactured using compression moulding, resin transfer moulding and hand lamination.”
