SPIROL Announces IATF 16949 Certification at Two Facilities


IATF 16949SPIROL International Corporation, a global manufacturer of Engineered Fasteners, Shims and Installation Equipment, is pleased to announce that two of its manufacturing facilities have recently been certified to IATF 16949:2016.

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.  “These industry-leading quality system certifications represent the ongoing commitment by the entire organization at SPIROL to achieve high quality, high value, flexible and responsive manufacturing and customer service.” said Ken Hagan, Division President.  

SPIROL Industries in Windsor, Ontario, Canada manufactures roll formed Tubular Products including Dowel Bushings, Spring Dowels, Ground Hollow Dowels, Compression Limiters and Spacers.  As stated by Daniel McLean, Quality Manager at SPIROL Canada: “Achieving the IATF certification is a huge success for our site in Canada as we continue to grow - and for SPIROL as a global company!

SPIROL International Corp. in Stow, Ohio manufactures Disc Springs, Precision Shims, Custom Washers and Spacers.  In addition to IATF 16949, SPIROL Ohio also holds AS9100 Rev D (aerospace) and NADCAP (aerospace and defense) quality system certifications.  Per Ken Hagan: “These certifications exemplify our relentless pursuit of continuous improvement and attaining the highest standards of quality.
