SPIROL UK Achieves IATF 16949 Certification 22-JUN-2022

SPIROL International Corporation, a global manufacturer of Engineered Fasteners, Shims and Installation Equipment, is pleased to announce that a fifth manufacturing facility, SPIROL Industries in the United Kingdom, has been certified to IATF 16949.

SPIROL Industries, located in Corby, Northamptonshire, UK, 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 their own precision tooling, and is equipped with in-house primary and secondary operations to bolster the organization’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. As stated by Simon Ward, the Managing Director of SPIROL UK, “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 recognized and something I am proud of them all for.”

IATF 16949 (which stands for 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.
