Wingard Quality Supply Receives IATF Certification

 

 

On May 4, 2018, Wingard Quality Supply received the IATF 16949:2016 Certification.  Wingard has been ISO/TS 16949 Certified since June 2014.  On October 3, 2016, IATF 16949:2016 was published by the IATF.  This new standard supersedes and replaces ISO/TS 16949:2009.  The primary focus of this new IATF 16949 standard is to define the higher level of requirements for the development of a Quality Management System for the automotive industry that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain.   Very few automotive suppliers have been able to make the transition from ISO/TS 16949 to IATF 16949.   The team at Wingard accomplished this honor in less than a year and on their first attempt.  Way to go Team Wingard!  Your truly are the best in the business!
