Ulbrinox has been certified by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), a group of automotive manufacturers whose goal is to provide improved quality products to automotive customers across the globe.
Ulbrinox has been ISO 9001:2015 for several years now, and having that certification was a prerequisite to acquiring IATF 16949:2016. Although Ulbrinox has received the IATF certification, it will continue to uphold the ISO 9001:2015 certification in tandem. The IATF certification focuses on quality in specific ways and in all facets of the automotive market.
The process to obtain this certification took more than two years of planning, implementation and final execution. The certification process required extreme diligence; all automotive manufacturing processes require rigorous documentation. IATF 16949:2016 certification guarantees comprehensive quality, from the products themselves to customer service and means that all Ulbrinox products undergo rigorous testing to be free of defects and failures. Ulbrinox is committed to ensuring that customers in the automotive sector, as well as those in other markets, receive extremely efficient and reliable service. With the relocation of large automakers to Mexico, Ulbrinox will be an IATF-certified local option, and one of the few available in North America.
This is a major milestone for the company, as the fact that it is IATF 16949:2016 certified recognizes the level of service and quality of the metal products that Ulbrinox supplies to the automotive manufacturing industry. Ulbrinox has a long history of handling the challenging demands of the automotive market and is pleased to be recognized through this certification as a premier supplier to the growing automotive industry in Mexico.
