Kinedyne's manufacturing facility in Nantong, China recently achieved the ISO 9001:2008 certification of its Quality Management System (QMS). The Nantong facility produces most of the company's products, including cargo securement devices for customers in the truck/automotive aftermarket and government sectors. It is the second Kinedyne location to receive this internationally recognized quality management certification.
“The procedure to achieve ISO certification requires a detailed review of key processes across the entire facility,” said Peter Miko, global quality director for Kinedyne. “We were able to identify those operations that are critical to our business and streamline them by removing steps that were not essential to the delivery of quality products to our customers. It was a challenging process, but along the way we acquired a great deal of information about our operations. This data will help us make dramatic enhancements to our quality management system.”
Besides the ISO 9001:2008 certification, the Kinedyne Nantong facility maintains a German Safety Certification Mark for certain products, which is required in the European Union.
