SPIROL Mexico Announces Certification to IATF 16949

SPIROL International Corporation, a global manufacturer of Engineered Fasteners, Shims and Installation Equipment, is pleased to announce that a fourth manufacturing facility, SPIROL Mexico, has been certified to IATF 16949:2016.

SPIROL in Apodaca, Neuvo León, Mexico manufactures Threaded Inserts and Compression Limiters for plastic components. As stated by David LaFleur – Divisional President, “I'm very proud of the team, their efforts and contributions. Gaining the IATF certification and effectively implementing it's values is critical to the long term success of the organization and the support of our Automotive customers. Managing this transition is already difficult and successfully navigating it through the added challenges of the pandemic demonstrates the competence of this incredible team.

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.
