Italian-based Mustad SpA has proudly announced that it has recently achieved the new IATF 16949:2016 certification, issued by the prestigious certification body Lloyd’s Register.

IATF 16949 certification, which is a revision of the technical specification ISO/TS 16949, places particular emphasis on the concept of defect prevention and reduction of variability and losses in the supply chain, which is something Mustad has always focused on.

“As a business we have always been careful in applying rigorous processing methods, helping us to produce products that have evolved following technological changes with a continuous increase in quality, which has always been one of the main principles of Mustad production,” comments Mustad. “This new certification, necessary to operate in the demanding automotive field, draws a new quality approach, evaluating the company as a whole.”

Mustad underlines that it has supported the certification audits for all the lines and all the processes of its production, in order to guarantee the same automotive standards for all its range of products.

“This important recognition seals the vision Mustad has of its customers: ‘A partner whose satisfaction has been dedicated for over 100 years’.”
