Covert Manufacturing Inc. has been certified as an IATF 16949:2016 compliant supplier. IATF 16949:2016 has evolved from the ISO/TS 16949 system – one of the most widely used international standards for quality management in the automotive industry. Achieving certification to this upgraded standard represents Covert Manufacturing’s strong commitment to maintaining automotive level quality standards for all our customers.
While Covert originally had an ISO 9001 focused quality management system, Covert’s continued growth as an automotive machined casting and assembly provider necessitated the advancement of our quality management system to ISO/TS 16949. When the IATF 16949:2016 was published by the International Automotive Task Force in October 2016, the standard superseded the ISO/TS 16949 quality management system.
IATF 16949:2016 redefines and increases the requirements of a quality management system for organizations in the automotive sector. The requirements of this system are much more intense and stringent than either ISO 9001 or ISO/TS 16949, and as a result, Covert has used the standard to continuously improve and elevate the quality management system.
Whether you stop by our facility and take a plant tour, or you look to our certification as an IATF 16949:2016 compliant supplier, Covert stands ready to leverage our improved quality management system to produce your castings on time, every time, while continuously improving our process.
