IATF 16949:2016 (replaces ISO/TS 16949:2009) is a standard that establishes the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS), specifically for the automotive sector.

The primary focus of the IATF 16949 standard is the development of a Quality Management System that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. The standard, combined with applicable Customer-Specific Requirements (CSR’s), define the QMS requirements for automotive production, service and/or accessory parts.

IATF 16949:2016 is an independent QMS standard that is fully aligned with the structure and requirements of ISO 9001:2015. Therefore, the IATF 16949 cannot be implemented alone as a stand-alone document, but must be implemented as a supplement and in conjunction with ISO 9001:2015.

Our vision is to be a pioneer in technology, innovative in production processes, and a leader in the fastener market, providing the essential elements of special fasteners production, such as quality, continuity, and reliability required by the automotive industry. 

Our mission is to produce fasteners that meet the quality expectations of the automotive industry while producing competitive and reliable products. By investing in the technological machines and licenses of which our customers are looking for in the market, we enable our customers to meet with high quality and competitive prices without looking for another source, and we add our experience in the production processes.
