Santa Clara, CA [June 28, 2022] Bel Power Solutions, a Bel group company, today announced its factory in Slovakia received IATF 16949 certification, the International Standard for Automotive Quality Management Systems. This standard ensures organizations create quality products and perform services in accordance with stringent automotive industry expectations.
The International Automotive Task Force developed IATF 16949 in 2016 with support from the Automotive Industry Action Group; this standard requires certification by a third-party auditor. IATF 16949 incorporates the structure and requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard system, which allows companies to streamline their productivity, increase efficiency, and foster innovation and operational growth. The new certification emphasizes product expansion, improving power systems, risk management, and supplier management.
A few benefits of the certification include prevention detection, waste reduction, product safety, risk management, contingency planning, and management of sub-tier suppliers.
“The certification ensures that power companies will provide customers with consistent, good quality products and services, with a goal to meet customer requirements efficiently and effectively while increasing customer loyalty,” said Farouq Tuweiq, Chief Financial Officer at Bel Fuse Inc. “This is also an opportunity for Bel to expand into new markets, as some sectors and clients require IATF 16949 before doing business.”
With this certification, Bel can increase its presence and commitment to the automotive and e-mobility industries and gain global recognition as a reputable supplier while continuously improving products and customer satisfaction, as many automotive customers now require IATF 16949.
