Groeneveld Manufacturing Operations ISO/TS 16949-certified. Highest quality standard for Groeneveld Group Manufacturing facilities.
After two years of preparations, the two manufacturing plants of Groeneveld Groep B.V. in Italy have attained the prestigious ISO/TS 16949 certificate of quality. ISO/TS is the highest quality standard in the demanding automotive industry and goes well beyond the well-known ISO 9001 standard. ďThe ISO/TS certification marks a significant milestone on our path to World Class Manufacturing and emphasizes the quality of our organization and processesĒ, says Ron den Engelsen, CEO of Groeneveld Group, manufacturer of oil management and automatic lubrication systems, safety solutions and onboard computers. Like ISO 9001, which Groeneveld satisfies since the early 90s, ISO/TS is geared towards process quality. Nonetheless, ISO/TS 16949 sets out in more emphatic terms the requirements for the quality management system regarding the design and development, production and installation of automotiverelated products. The latest and most stringent automotive quality standard places a far greater degree of emphasis on aspects such as continuous improvement and preventing mistakes and waste. Aspects you can do plenty about, especially on the shop floor. This new standard is much more closely involved at the level of production staff and is more in tune with tools such as Six Sigma and Kaizen. ďThe achievement of the ISO/TS 16949 certificate means to embrace a new philosophy of quality, not just higher quality standards in manufacturing and design. I met a young, prepared and motivated team in Italy that was able in few years to make a turn-around of processes and procedures. I am confident that they are committed to become a World Class Manufacturing organization.Ē Thus Giorgio Ippolito, Lead Auditor of the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS), after the successful completion of the audit.
