SEC was the first U.S. Fabricator to achieve IATF 16949 Certification, which is an ISO Technical Specification that aligns existing U.S., German, French, Japanese, and Italian automotive quality system standards.
Based on ISO 9001, it encourages a process-based approach resulting in a common language that streamlines quality requirements and simplifies implementation and maintenance.
While this is an automotive standard, its application is on a global basis within the manufacturing operation. Therefore, every SEC customer directly benefits by incurring a lower total purchasing cost:
- Lower purchase prices as the manufacturer should be running at a lower in-process defect rate
- Lower costs associated with line down issues as late product receipts will be dramatically reduced
- Lower reject rates at end of line associated with defective products from IATF 16949 certified supplier
