How does our IATF 16949 certification benefit our customers?

The advantages of our quality management system

Meldon is an IATF 16949 certified company. This means that we follow a very strict set of requirements for new product introduction (NPI) and mass production processes. One of these requirements involves operating according to a very effective quality management system. The IATF 16949 quality management system focuses on prevention, which translates into fewer product defects, process failures and production errors.

At Meldon, we experience the benefits of this highly effective management system on a daily basis. But what are the benefits for you, our valued customer?

Three major advantages can be detected:

  1. High quality standards that meet your needs and expectations
  2. Increased efficiency
  3. Cost savings

Below, we further elaborate on these benefits.

1. High quality standards

By working with a manufacturer with the IATF certification, you are assured of outstanding quality. One of the biggest advantages is that we, as an IATF certified supplier, are required to make a long-term commitment to maintaining the certification. The annual follow-up audit and re-certification that occurs every three years reflect our dedication to maintaining our high-quality standards.

We aim to continuously optimize our products and processes and implement the latest technologies into our workflow. This ensures that you can rely on world-class solutions and reliable connections. Now and in the years to come. As a result, this saves you a lot of time trying to find the right partner for future projects.

2. Increased efficiency

The quality management system requires us to review process flow and interactions. As a result, we have developed a keen eye for identifying opportunities for improving our efficiency. So, beyond the outstanding product quality and processes, as a customer, you benefit from this.

Basing decisions on factual data allows us to place resources in areas that give maximum improvement in efficiency. This helps optimize lead time and output for our customers.

3. Cost savings

Our ability to provide qualified products leads to an excellent relationship with our customers. For them, this results in lower supplier management costs. Manufacturing according to the IATF standards can also drive cost savings. For example in waste reduction, which can help to provide highly efficient and cost-effective solutions. In doing so, we also support the common goal of environmental friendliness and sustainability.

High quality standards are vital to us

At Meldon, we always strive to improve our products, production processess and customer satisfaction. By designing and manufacturing according to our IATF certification and by adhering to the APQP principles we hope to deliver the highest possible quality each and every day.
