Sheboygan, WI — Muth Mirror Systems, LLC has earned ISO 9001:2008 certification. The scope of the registration is for the design and manufacture of automotive safety products, including glass shape cutting, electronic fabrication and assembly. The certificate covers all of their facilities including manufacturing at 4221 High Tech Lane, Sheboygan, WI; and their sales offices in Michigan and Japan.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a network of 148 countries working to establish and enhance universal standards of operation for businesses. ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for quality management and pertains to the processes that create and control the products and services a business provides. The rigorous ISO standards are audited by an external entity to ensure the standards are met and maintained.
As with all ISO applications, this involved review of the quality manuals and procedures Muth follows by an independent auditing firm. The full on-site audit ensured that working practices observe the procedures stated objectives and that appropriate records are kept. Muth chose Verisys Registrars to oversee their auditing process.
There are many reasons a company chooses to undertake the intense ISO certification process. These include: it shows commitment to quality, customers, and a willingness to work towards improving efficiency; it proves that an effective quality management system is in place that meets the extremely high standards of an independent, external audit; it enhances the company’s image for customers, employees and shareholders; and it offers a competitive edge when marketing the company’s products or services.
A company typically see a higher level of responsibility and quality consciousness from staff, improved use of time and resources, reduced waste, and increased consistency of products and services once ISO certification is attained.
“We worked hard and feel honored to have earned the ISO certification. The automotive industry, like many others, is extremely competitive, so this confirms in the minds of those we work with our commitment to ongoing quality management and day-to-day operations,” says Michael Muth, CEO of Muth Mirror Systems.
