Spirol UK achieves IATF 16949 certification

Spirol International Corporation, a global manufacturer of engineered fasteners, shims and installation equipment, has announced that a fifth manufacturing facility, Spirol Industries in the UK, has been certified to IATF 16949.

Spirol Industries, located in Corby, manufactures coiled pins, slotted pins and compression limiters for the automotive, agriculture/heavy equipment, alternative/green energy, industrial, medical and many other industries. Like all Spirol manufacturing facilities, Spirol UK develops its own precision tooling, and is equipped with in-house primary and secondary operations to bolster the organisation’s extensive manufacturing footprint.

The ability to service customers from sales, manufacturing, and distribution facilities strategically located around the world ensures that Spirol’s customers receive the support and product they need – when they need it. This is especially important in today’s industrial climate given the volatility in the global supply chain.

Simon Ward, managing director of Spirol UK, said: “Focusing on the long term support of our customers in gaining IATF certification is key to everyone’s success. The team’s contributions culminating in IATF accreditation for Spirol’s UK site are testament to everyone’s drive and commitment supporting and living our quality vision in every action they take. The team’s efforts, both collectively and individually, that were required to not only gain IATF certification, but to sustain and support its values, are recognised and something I am proud of them all for.”

IATF 16949 (International Automotive Task Force) supersedes ISO/TS 16949, the previous technical specification for the quality management systems of the automotive sector. The more stringent IATF 16949 is focused on achieving best practices when designing, developing, manufacturing, installing or servicing automotive products. The updated standard puts extra emphasis on risk-based thinking, process control and product traceability to ensure the highest quality and on time delivery for every manufactured lot and shipment.
