The group of companies "Severstal-hardware" (included in the division "Severstal Russian Steel") has received a certificate confirming compliance with the quality management system requirements of the international automotive standard ISO / TS 16949:2009.
The decision to extend the certificate was made in February, after a re-certification audit, which took place at the site of Cherepovets in productions of bright steel and shaped steel profiles — products demanded by the automotive industry. Compliance with the requirements of ISO / TS 16949:2009 can not only strengthen relationships with existing clients, but also gives the right to participate in tenders for the production of components for both domestic and foreign automobile manufacturers and branded service stations, which are not the clients of the company.
"The existence of a certificate — a necessary condition for the development of relationships with customers, car manufacturers. Confirming the certificate, we were able to confirm their status and manufacturer of quality products for the automotive industry. However, the audit showed us areas for improvement and growth, and it is no less important result of the test, because it forces us to evolve and move forward, "- the general director of" Severstal-hardware "Oleg Veter.
Next check expects Cherepovets site at the end of this year. In December a surveillance audit — such checks are carried out throughout the period of validity of the certificate.
